Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Municipal de Montilivi will host Tuesday’s football game between Girona and Mirandes, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Girona did well to beat Espanyol on the road in the Catalan derby on Matchday 13, but they suffered yet another dip in form. The Catalan outfit head into the midweek fixture following back-to-back defeats to Malaga and Alcorcon, and you should keep in mind that key attacker and to scorer from the last season Stuani remains in the recovery room.
Mirandes, on the other hand, are only one point behind the playoffs berth. The visitors aim to regain their spot in top six, and we are positive that they will take advantage of the current situation in Girona’s dressing room. In their last meeting at Estadio Municipal de Montilivi Mirandes recorded a 3-0 win over Girona, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Antonio Luna):
Antonio Luna is a product of Sevilla football academy. The pacey left back was born in Son Servera, Spain on March 17, 1991 and he made his senior debut with Sevilla B. Antonio Luna made 32 appearances in the league for the reserve team, while playing 21 games for los Sevillanos in the Spanish top flight.
After ending his loan spell with Mallorca in 2013, Luna moved to England and signed a three-year deal with Aston Villa. It has to be noted that the Spanish footballer found the net for the Villans on his Premier League debut in a 3-1 win over Arsenal. After making 17 appearances in the English elite division for the Villa Park outfit, he returned to Spain in 2015, signing a deal with Eibar.
Antonio Luna scored one goal in 41 appearances for los Armeros before joining fellow La liga side Levante in 2017. You should know that Luna has five caps for Spain U20 team.
Highlighted Team (Mirandes):
Mirandes is a Spanish club founded on May 3, 1927. Los Rojillos compete in Segunda division, with the team still eyeing their first ever promotion to La Liga. Mirandes’ home colours are red and black, while their away kit is mainly light blue.
Mirandes did remarkably well to make it to the Copa del Rey semis in the 2019/20 season, with the team outplaying the likes of Celta, Villarreal, and Sevilla in the process. Real Sociedad, though, proved to be a big catch for Mirandes in the Spanish Cup semis. Los Rojillos welcome their rivals at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. The stadium was opened back in 1950, with the venue being able to host 5,759 spectators.
Mirandes played their first game on June 4, 1927, with the team defeating Arabarra thanks to Fidel Angulo’s goal. Zaragoza and Alaves are considered one of the club’s main rivals. Los Rojillos have won Castilla and Leon Cup on two occasions (2011, 2012).
