Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mirandes welcome Eibar to their Estadio Municipal de Anduva in the La Liga 2 round 9. Following a 2-1 win over Tenerife, Mirandes suffered back-to-back losses to Leganes and Burgos in the previous two league fixtures, with the team dropping to 13th place in the standings. Los Rojillos aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at los Armeros. Keep in mind that Mirandes failed to turn their dominance into goals in the defeat to Burgos.
Eibar, on the other hand, are on a quest to secure a quick return to the Spanish elite division. Los Armeros did well to beat Ibiza 3-1 at the weekend, and given their fine form in Segunda Division, away win should be considered. A man to keep an eye on in the away side will be Stoichkov, who scored his fifth goal of the season in the triumph over Ibiza.
