Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Las Palmas will look to extend their winning run to three games when they host Fuenlabrada to their Estadio de Gran Canaria on Matchday 14. La Union Deportiva have been impressive at the back of late, and you should know that they are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home ground. Even though midfielder Omenuke Mfulu is likely to miss the game with injury, home win should be considered as Las Palmas have turned their Estadio de Gran Canaria into a real fortress.
Fuenla, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team losing to both Ibiza and Girona in the previous two league fixtures. Fuenlabrada have been struggling at the back of late, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. Jacques Dago is sidelined through suspension for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Sergio Araujo):
Sergio Araujo was born in Buenos Aires on 28 January, 1992 and, as expected, he started playing for his home-town club Boca Juniors. He made just 19 appearances for Boca in the league and he played for the likes of Barcelona B, Tigre and Las Palmas on loan in the past as well.
The Argentine attacker scored 25 goals in 43 appearances for los Amarillos in the 2014/2015 Segunda Division campaign and despite the fact that he was linked with a move to Celtic and Real Sociedad, the club owners managed to sign a permanent deal with the former Boca Juniors footballer.
Araujo has three caps for Argentina U23 team and he represented la Albiceleste at the 2009 FIFA U17 World Cup. It has to be noted that he scored the winner for Argentina in the opening match of the tournament against Honduras. Araujo scored six goals in eight appearances for the Argentina U17 team. The pacey attacker has a contract with Las Palmas which expires on 30 June, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Fuenlabrada):
Nicknamed los Kirikos, Fuenlabrada is a Spanish football club that competes in Segunda Division. Fuenlabrada was founded in 1975, with the team securing promotion to La Liga 2 for the first time in the 2019/20 season.
Fuenla finished the campaign in the 8th place in the standings, and, as a result, they missed out on a place in the Segunda division playoffs. Los Kirikos wear blue shirts and blue shorts when playing on home soil, while their away kit is mainly red. Estadio Fernando Torres is the club’s home ground. The venue was named under legendary Spanish attacker Fernando Torres, who scored 38 goals in 110 appearances for La Furia Roja on the international stage.
“El Nino”, who was born in Fuenlabrada, played for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea, Milan, and Sagan Tosu during his professional career. Dioni is leading Fuenlabrada all-time top scorers list as he netted 47 goals in 82 appearances for the club.
