Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mirandes and Leganes take on each other at Estadio Municipal de Anduva in what is expected to be a close La Liga 2 encounter. Mirandes quickly bounced back from a 3-1 loss to Alcorcon, with the team beating Tenerife 2-1 on the road. Los Rojillos aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but the game against Leganes will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. Moreno Barroso is widely expected to return to the starting XI, after scoring a brace in the comeback at Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez.
The capital club, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Amorebieta. Leganes finally got their first triumph of the season, but beating Mirandes on the road is easier said than done. As previously mentioned, a close match is on the cards in Miranda de Ebro, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. In their last meeting in the Spanish second tier the two teams played out a goalless draw.
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 (Leganes):
Leganes are a Spanish football club that have mostly been playing in lower leagues. Los Pepineros play their home games at Batarque (Madrid) and the capacity of the stadium is just 8,138. Leganes secured their promotion to the Spanish La Liga for the first time ever in 2016 and, no doubt, that is considered the club’s biggest success.
Leganes’ bitterest rivals are fellow capital club Getafe and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the South Madrid derby.
The colour of the team’s home kit is white and blue, whilst their away kits are green. The likes of Pierre Webo, Samuel Eto’o, Ivan Zarandona, Jose Chamot, Catanha, Ruben Falcon, Jordi Lardin and Pedro Lago are famous players who were part of the Batarque outfit in the past. Lady Maria Victoria Pavon is the first female president in the history of the club and she has been in charge of the club since 2009.
