Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Monday’s football game at Estadio Municipal de Anduva pits together Mirandes and Eibar, the two top-table sides. Mirandes aim to build on back-to-back wins over Oviedo and Gijon, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to stay in the playoffs race. Forward Nico Serrrano continues to miss out with an ankle problem, while goalkeeper Ramo Juan should recover in time to face los Armeros.
The Basques, on the other hand, are on a four-game winning run in the Spanish second tier. The league leaders look unstoppable at the moment, but beating the in-form Rojillos on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. Both Antonio Rios and Imanol Garcia are sidelined with injuries, while Sacristan is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Highlighted Player (Manu Garcia):
Manu Garcia is a product of Real Sociedad youth academy. The Spanish midfielder, who was born on 26 April, 1986, started playing for Real Sociedad B at the age of 19, making 101 appearances for the Basque outfit between 2005 and 2008. He scored 18 goals for Real Sociedad B and, as a result, Eibar chiefs decided to sign him in July, 2008. Manu Garcia spent the 2008/2009 season on loan at Real Union, scoring eight goals in 29 appearances for the club and in 2010 he joined Logrones.
Finally, in June 2012 he made probably the best decision of his career as he signed a contract with Segunda Division side Deportivo Alaves. Manu Garcia made 37 appearances for El Glorioso on his debut season and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular.
Garcia scored five goals for Alaves in the 2015/2016 Segunda Division campaign and, no doubt, he helped the team secure promotion to Primera Division. He has a contract with Alaves which expires on 30 June, 2018.
