Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following a goalless draw with Villarreal B, Leganes will look to move closer to the playoffs berth when they face Mirandes on Tuesday evening. The capital club have been impressive on home soil of late, and, as a result, the bookies see them as favourites to win the midweek fixture. Japan midfielder Gaku Shibasaki is on international duty, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Los Rojillos, on the other hand, aim to build on a 4-2 win over Albacete. Mirandes are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but given their poor away record in Segunda Division, home win should definitely be considered. With no fresh injury worries to report, boss Joseba Etxeberria is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated el Queso Mecanico at the weekend. Simon Moreno remains on the sidelines with injury for the visiting side, while all Santos, Nico Serrano, and Javi Serrano are major doubts.
Highlighted Player (Allan Nyom):
After playing amateur football in his homeland France, Allan Nyom began his professional career at Arles-Avignon. The pacey full back made 37 appearances for the club in the 2008/2009 season and at the end of the campaign he signed a deal with Serie A side Udinese. However, given the great collaboration between Udinese and Granada, he was immediately sent on loan to the Estadio Nuevo los Carmenes outfit.
Granada finished the 2009/2010 season in top position in the Segunda Division and, as a result, they secured automatic promotion to the Spanish top flight. Allan Nyom established himself as a first-team regular and it has to be noted that he made 32 appearances for los Granadinos in the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign. After spending five seasons at Granada, Nyom joined Watford in 2015 and he moved to fellow Premier League side WBA at the end of the season.
The WBA defender represents Cameroon on the international stage and he made his debut for Les Lions Indomptables on November 11, 2011.
Highlighted Team (Mirandes):
Mirandes is a Spanish club founded on May 3, 1927. Los Rojillos compete in Segunda division, with the team still eyeing their first ever promotion to La Liga. Mirandes’ home colours are red and black, while their away kit is mainly light blue.
Mirandes did remarkably well to make it to the Copa del Rey semis in the 2019/20 season, with the team outplaying the likes of Celta, Villarreal, and Sevilla in the process. Real Sociedad, though, proved to be a big catch for Mirandes in the Spanish Cup semis. Los Rojillos welcome their rivals at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. The stadium was opened back in 1950, with the venue being able to host 5,759 spectators.
Mirandes played their first game on June 4, 1927, with the team defeating Arabarra thanks to Fidel Angulo’s goal. Zaragoza and Alaves are considered one of the club’s main rivals. Los Rojillos have won Castilla and Leon Cup on two occasions (2011, 2012).
