Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Anxo Carro will host Sunday’s Segunda Division game between Lugo and Mirandes, the two relegation-threatened teams. Lugo desperately needed a win against Burgos, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their seven-game winless run in La Liga 2. With no fresh injury concerns to report, head coach Hernan Perez is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Burgos at the weekend.
Los Rojillos, on the other hand, failed to win the previous five league fixtures, and given their four-game losing run at Estadio Anxo Carro, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at the venue Lugo defeated Mirandes 2-1, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. Both Nikolaos Michelis and Sergio Santos are rated doubtful for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Manu Barreiro):
Manu Barreiro is a professional player who was born on 8 July, 1986 in Compostela, Spain. Barreiro is a product of Real Madrid youth school, but he played for Valencia during his youth career as well. He made three appearances for Valencia B, but in 2005 he joined Lalin.
He played for the likes of Algeciras, Cadiz, Jerez, Zamora, Cerceda, Pontevera and Ferrol in lower leagues as well and on 27 June 2014 he signed a contract with Segunda Division side Alaves. He scored 11 goals for the club in the 2014/2015 campaign and he netted five goals in 32 appearances for El Glorioso in the 2015/2016 Segunda Division campaign, helping the team secure promotion to La Liga.
Manu Barreiro won Segunda Division B with Cadiz in the 2008/2009 season. Manu Barreiro is a centre forward, but he is capable of playing as a left winger as well. His contract with Alaves expires on 30 June, 2017.
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).
