Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mirandes and Logrones face each other in a highly-anticipated La Liga 2 game at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. Los Rojillos quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Zaragoza, with the team beating Sporting Gijon on the road, but they still have slim chances of booking their place in the playoffs. Mirandes have been having their ups and downs at home this season, and you should know that they are eyeing their sixth home win of the process.
Logrones, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Tenerife, and they managed to get one. The newcomers recorded their first league win since January 2, 2021 at the weekend, but despite the triumph they remained in the danger zone. Logrones are not regarded as good travellers, and seeing that Mirandes aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive, we are tempted to put our money on los Rojillos.

UD Logrones is a Spanish football team that participates in Spanish Segunda Division. Union Deportiva Logrones were founded in 2009 following the extinction of CD Logrones, with the team competing in Segunda B until the 2019/20 season.
In 2020 UD Logrones secured promotion to Segunda division as they were sitting in top position in the standings when the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The club is well known for their white shirts with red stripes, while blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Union Deportiva Logrones play their home games at Las Gaunas, the venue with the capacity of 16,000 spectators.
UD Logrones take on Sporting Gijon on their debut in the Spanish second tier. It has to be noted that the club chiefs made a three-year collaboration with La Liga side Eibar, which saw their footballers going on loan to Logrones to gain some experience.
