Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mirandes and Girona take on each other at Estadio Municipal de Anduva in the La Liga 2 round 25. Mirandes have been in a splendid form of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive win in Segunda Division. Los Rojillos managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last three league fixtures, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s clash.
Girona have been playing some low-scoring games of late despite the fact that Christian Stuani is no longer struggling with injuries. Since under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Girona’s eleven league fixtures, a low-scoring affair is on the cards at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. In the first half of the season Girona defeated Mirandes 1-0 thanks to Sylla’s goal, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals.
Highlighted Player (Carlos Julio):
Carlos Julio Martinez is a La Masia product who plays for Mirandes in Segunda Division as a right back. Martinez started his youth career at the Barca football academy, but in 2013 he moved to Club Esportiu Europa. At the start of his senior career, the Dominican footballer played for both Villarreal B and Villarreal C before joining Marbella.
After scoring two goals in 63 appearances in the league for los Blanquillos, Carlos Julio Martinez moved to Mirandes in the summer of 2018. Speaking of his international career, Martinez made his debut with the Dominican Republic national team on December 8, 2012 in a 2-1 win over Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean Cup.
His primary position is right-back, but he can be used as a right midfielder as well. Carlos Julio Martinez was born in Santo Domingo de Guzman, Dominican Republic, and he has a dual citizenship.
Highlighted Team (Girona):
After several unsuccessful attempts, finally secured promotion to Primera Division at the end of the 2016/2017 season. The Catalan outfit finished the campaign in second place in the standings, 14 points behind Levante and only two clear of third-placed Getafe. Girona play their home games at Montilivi and the capacity of the venue is 9.286.
Speaking of the club history, Girona were founded in the café Norat in La Rambla of Girona on July 23, 1930 and they played their first official game against Colonia Artigas. A number of Spanish coaches were in charge of the team in the past, but it has to be noted that Uruguayan tactician Dagoberto Moll (1965/1966) and Karoly Plattko (1948/1949) of Hungary were in charge of the club as well.
The Catalan team wear white shirts with red stripes when playing at home, while the colour of their shorts is blue. The team’s away kits are blue and black and Sporting Gijon are considered one of Girona’s fiercest rivals.
