Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mirandes and Alcorcon square off against each other at Estadio Municipal de Anduva in what is expected to be a close La Liga 2 encounter. Los Rojillos aim to keep their 100% record at home intact, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match. Talented attacker Sergio Camello, who impressed on his Mirandes debut at the weekend, is likely to pose a big threat to the opposition defenders.
Alcorcon, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the standings. Given their four-game losing run at the start of the season, it is no wonder the bookies see the rock-bottom side as big underdogs in Saturday’s clash. Taking everything into account, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise.
