Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After sharing the spoils with Rayo Vallecano in the Madrid derby, Leganes will be looking to cement their spot in top six when they take on Logrones on Matchday 39. Leganes are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, with the team eyeing their 14th home win of the season. Even both Borja Baston and Kenneth Omeruo are likely to miss the game with injuries, we predict that the hosts are going to grab something from the match.
Logrones, on the other hand, remain in the recovery room. The newcomers are desperate to avoid relegation back to Segunda B, but they will have a mountain to climb in Sunday’s clash in Madrid. Since Leganes are a real force to be reckoned with at home, the relegation-threatened visitors should not be looking for points at Estadio Municipal de Butarque. Logrones attacker Ruben Martinez is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the 4-1 loss to Girona.

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.
