Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After playing out a 2-2 draw with Zaragoza at Romareda at the weekend, Las Palmas will be looking to return to winning ways when they face Logrones at Estadio de Gran Canaria. Los Amarillos have yet to record a win in the 2020/21 Segunda Division campaign, but their displays seem to be much better than the results. However, home win should not be considered as influential midfielder Alvaro Lemos is out of contention through suspension.
Logrones, on the other hand, are eyeing their first win of the season as well. The newcomers kicked off the campaign with a 1-0 loss at Sporting Gijon, with the team sharing the spoils with Castellon at home at the weekend. Seeing that Logrones failed to turn their dominance into victory on Matchday 3, we are positive that they are going to grab something from the Las Palmas game.
Highlighted Player (Martin Mantovani):
After spending his youth career at Banfield, Kimberley and Cadetes San Martin, Martin Mantovani signed for Atletico Madrid in 2006. The Argentine defender played seven games for Atletico Madrid B in the 2009/2010 season and he joined Cultural Leonesa at the end of the season. He made 32 appearances for Leonesa in the 2010/2011 season and in 2011 he moved to Atletico Baleares.
Despite establishing himself as a starter at Atletico Baleares, he decided to join Oviedo in 2012. He played for los Azules in the 2012/2013 campaign and at the end of the season he was sent on loan to Leganes. After impressing with Leganes in the 2013/2014 campaign, the club chiefs decided to sign a permanent deal with the Argentine centre back.
He played regularly for the club in the 2015/2016 Segunda Division campaign and, no doubt, he helped the team secure promotion to Spanish elite division. Martin Mantovani was born on 11 August, 1984 in San Miguel. Mantovani’s contract with Leganes expires on 30 June, 2018.
Highlighted Team (Logrones):
UD Logrones is a Spanish football team that participates in Spanish Segunda Division. Union Deportiva Logrones were founded in 2009 following the extinction of CD Logrones, with the team competing in Segunda B until the 2019/20 season.
In 2020 UD Logrones secured promotion to Segunda division as they were sitting in top position in the standings when the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The club is well known for their white shirts with red stripes, while blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Union Deportiva Logrones play their home games at Las Gaunas, the venue with the capacity of 16,000 spectators.
UD Logrones take on Sporting Gijon on their debut in the Spanish second tier. It has to be noted that the club chiefs made a three-year collaboration with La Liga side Eibar, which saw their footballers going on loan to Logrones to gain some experience.
