Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Las Palmas and Malaga face each other at Estadio de Gran Canaria in the closing match of Saturday’s program. La Union Deportiva are eager to retain top position in the standings, and the bookies see them as hot favourites to win this match. Marc Cardona has joined the likes of Marvin Park, Jonathan Viera, Machin Perez, Sandro Ramirez, and Benito Ramirez in the recovery room. Loren Moron is widely expected to replace Cardona in the starting XI.
Los Boquerones, on the other hand, have slim survival chances, with the team sitting in 20th place in the table, ten points behind the safe zone. Since Las Palmas have turned their stadium into a real fortress, we predict that the promotion-chasing hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. To make things even worse for the away side, midfielder Genaro Rodriguez is banned for the match.
Highlighted Player (Vitolo):
Over the years Victor Machin Perez - Vitolo has established himself as one of Sevilla’s key players. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a forward as well, won his third consecutive Europa League trophy with los Sevillanos in 2016.
Vitolo was born in Las Palmas on 2 November, 1989 and he played for his home-town club Las Palmas from 2010 to 2013. The Spanish footballer joined Sevilla on 28 June, 2013 and, no doubt, he made the right decision when he moved to Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Vitolo played one game for Spain in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, but he failed to make the final cut.
However, he established himself as a first-team regular under Julen Lopetegui. Vitolo scored his first goal for La Furia Roja in an 8-0 win over Liechtenstein and he provided an assist for David Silva as well. He has a contract with Sevilla which expires on 30 June, 2020.
