Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
There will be fireworks when Leganes and Zaragoza go head to head at Estadio Municipal de Butarque on day 7 of the new Segunda Division campaign. The capital club quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Girona, with the team beating Logrones on the road thanks to Borja Baston’s goal. The former Swansea City attacker is eager to add more goals to his account, and, no doubt, the opposition back-line should have him at bay.
Zaragoza, on the other hand, suffered an unexpected 2-1 loss to Malaga at home at the weekend, with the team dropping to 13th place in the standings. The visitors just can’t find their best form at the start of the season, and given Leganes’ home record, we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in the midweek clash. Michael Santos is likely to keep his place up front, alongside aforementioned Leganes attacker Borja Baston.
Highlighted Player (Rubén Pérez):
Rubén Pérez is a Spanish footballer who was born in Ecija on April 26, 1989. The 178-cm tall midfielder is a product of Atletico Madrid youth academy, but he made no more than one appearance in La Liga for los Rojiblancos. Ruben Perez, though, played 53 games for Atletico Madrid B before joining Deportivo La Coruna on loan.
The Spanish footballer spent some time on loan at Getafe, Real Betis, Elche and Torino as well before joining Granada in 2015. After making 31 appearances for the Andalusian side from 2015 to 2018, Ruben Perez joined Leganes on loan in 2016.
In 2018 he signed a permanent deal with Leganes and he has been playing for the capital club ever since. His main position is defensive midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a central midfielder as well. Ruben Perez has 5 caps for Spain U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior squad.
Highlighted Team (Leganes):
Leganes are a Spanish football club that have mostly been playing in lower leagues. Los Pepineros play their home games at Batarque (Madrid) and the capacity of the stadium is just 8,138. Leganes secured their promotion to the Spanish La Liga for the first time ever in 2016 and, no doubt, that is considered the club’s biggest success.
Leganes’ bitterest rivals are fellow capital club Getafe and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the South Madrid derby.
The colour of the team’s home kit is white and blue, whilst their away kits are green. The likes of Pierre Webo, Samuel Eto’o, Ivan Zarandona, Jose Chamot, Catanha, Ruben Falcon, Jordi Lardin and Pedro Lago are famous players who were part of the Batarque outfit in the past. Lady Maria Victoria Pavon is the first female president in the history of the club and she has been in charge of the club since 2009.
