Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Malaga will look to put an end to their three-game winless run in Segunda Division when they welcome Leganes to their Estadio La Rosaleda on Matchday 21. Los Boquerones sit in the middle of the table, four points behind of the playoffs berth. Midfielder Genaro Rodriguez is back from suspension, while Senegal attacker Sekou Gassama is pushing for a start after he was rested in the Copa del Rey defeat to Rayo Majadahonda.
The capital club, on the other hand, eliminated Leonesa after extra-time in the Copa del Rey last 64. Leganes are not enjoying a La Liga2 season to remember, and seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Andalusian outfit. Leganes forward Bautista Jon is pushing for a start after scoring a brace in the Spanish Cup triumph over Leonesa.
Highlighted Player (David Lomban):
David Lomban was born in Aviles, Asturias on 5 June, 1987 and he began his senior career at Valencia. The 185-cm-tall defender played 37 matches for Valencia B and he made no more than three appearances for the first team. After spending the 2009/2010 season on loan at Salamanca, he joined Xerez in 2010 and two years later he signed for Barcelona B.
David Lomban played just one season for the Catalan outfit in Segunda Division and then he decided to take a bigger step towards a brighter future as he joined La Liga side Elche. After making 62 appearances for the club, he signed a three-year contract with Granada on 10 August, 2015. Lomban played 31 games for los Granadinos in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign, but he failed to find the net for the Andalusian outfit in the top flight.
David Lomban’s contract with Granada expires on 30 June, 2018. Speaking of his international career, the Granada defender has 11 caps for Spain U17 and he played one match for Spain U20 team as well.
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.
