Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Logrones will be looking to put an end to their three-match winless run in La Liga 2 when they host Girona at their Estadio Las Gaunas on Sunday evening. Logrones have been struggling in front of goal of late, and it should come as no surprise the odds for home win have been dropping. Sergio Rodriguez’s troops are only one point clear of the bottom three, meaning that this match is of big importance for the home side.
The Catalan side, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in the Segunda Division. Girona are determined to book their place in the playoffs, and seeing that Logrones have been anything but sharp up front in recent weeks, away win should be considered. Despite failing to find the net in the 1-0 win over Tenerife, Christian Stuani should keep his place up front, alongside Panama international Yoel Barcenas.
Highlighted Player (Ander Vitoria ):
Ander Vitoria is a Spanish attacker who plays for UD Logrones in Segunda Division. Vitoria played for Zubizarreta-Igorre at youth level when Athletic Club scouts spotted him. He joined the Basque Lions at the age of ten, but he did not see any game action with the San Mames outfit at senior level.
Ander Vitoria played for the likes of Basconia, Lemona (loan), Amorebieta (loan), Portugaleta, Sant Andreu, Leioa, Burgos, and Barakaldo before joining UD Logrones. Vitoria made his Logrones debut in a goalless draw with Durango on August 25, 2018. Born in Igorre, Spain on January 22, 1990, Ander Vitoria wears the No. 9 shirt at Logrones.
His primary position is centre-forward, and his contract with UD Logrones should expire on June 30, 2021. Ander Vitoria scored his first goal for Union Deportiva in a 1-1 draw with Real Sociedad B on December 2, 2018 at Estadio Nuevo Municipal las Gaunas.
Highlighted Team (Girona):
After several unsuccessful attempts, finally secured promotion to Primera Division at the end of the 2016/2017 season. The Catalan outfit finished the campaign in second place in the standings, 14 points behind Levante and only two clear of third-placed Getafe. Girona play their home games at Montilivi and the capacity of the venue is 9.286.
Speaking of the club history, Girona were founded in the café Norat in La Rambla of Girona on July 23, 1930 and they played their first official game against Colonia Artigas. A number of Spanish coaches were in charge of the team in the past, but it has to be noted that Uruguayan tactician Dagoberto Moll (1965/1966) and Karoly Plattko (1948/1949) of Hungary were in charge of the club as well.
The Catalan team wear white shirts with red stripes when playing at home, while the colour of their shorts is blue. The team’s away kits are blue and black and Sporting Gijon are considered one of Girona’s fiercest rivals.
