Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mirandes and Huesca square off against each other at Estadio Municipal de Anduva in what is expected to be a close Segunda Division game. Los Rojillos are stuck at the bottom with only seven points in their pocket, with the team suffering back-to-back defeats to Levante and Burgos in the previous two league fixtures. Both Sergio Santos and Simon Moreno remain in the treatment room, while Nikolaos Michelis will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Los Azulgranas, on the other hand, aim to extend their unbeaten run to six games. Considering that Huesca defeated Oviedo thanks to Carrillo’s goal in their last away game, we are tempted to put our money on Cuco Ziganda’s charges. In their last encounter in the Spanish second tier Huesca outclassed Mirandes 4-0, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered. Daniel Esriche has yet to recover from a knee problem, speaking of the away side.
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.
Highlighted Team (Huesca):
Huesca are a Spanish club that compete in La Liga, the Spanish top flight. The club was originally founded in 1910, but in 1940 it was renamed Union Deportiva. In 1956 the club disappeared due to financial problems, but four years later Sociedad Deportiva Huesca was born. Huesca are well known for their blaugrana colors as their founding members were Barcelona fans.
The club welcome their rivals at El Alcoraz and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 5,500. Despite the fact that El Alcoraz can hold up to 5,500 people in December 2014 7,600 spectators watched the game between Huesca and Barcelona. Huesca will make their first ever appearance in Primera Division in the 2018/2019 season.
The likes of Leo Franco, Luis Sastre and Ruben Castro are some of the most notable footballers that played for Huesca. Real Zaragoza are considered Huesca’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in Derbi Aragones.
