Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
All eyes will be on Estadio Municipal de Butarque when Leganes and Las Palmas face each other in the opening game of the season. After failing to impress in the 2019/20 La Liga season, Leganes are on a quest to secure a quick return to the Spanish top flight. The club chiefs did well to sign Borja Baston from Aston Villa in the summer transfer window, with Jose Luis Marti being appointed as the team’s new manager. The capital club are eager to secure automatic promotion to La Liga, but keep in mind that Roque Mesa, Szymanowski, Recio, Guerrero, Carrillo, and Marc Navarro are some of the players who left the club.
Las Palmas, on the other hand, finished the last Segunda Division campaign in style, with the team rolling over Extremadura 5-1, but that did not help them secure a place in the playoffs. Seeing that Las Palmas are not regarded as good travelers, we are tempted to put our money on Leganes.
Highlighted Team (Las Palmas):
Las Palmas are a Spanish football club based in the Canary Islands. The club was founded on 22 August, 1949. Los Amarillos play in Spanish La Liga and the team’s home ground is Estadio Gran Canaria. The stadium was opened in 2003 and it’s current capacity is 32,150. Miguel Angel Ramirez is the club’s chairman and the club’s main rivals are Tenerife.
Las Palmas impressed in the 2015/2016 La liga campaign, with the team finishing the season in 11th place in the standings. However, it has to be noted that los Amarillos finished the 1968/1969 Primera Division campaign in second place in the table, 11 points behind Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Speaking of Copa del Rey, Las Palmas made it to the final of the Spanish Cup in 1978. Las Palmas eliminated Sporting Gijon in the semis (5-3), but Barcelona outplayed los Amarillos in the title game (3-1).
