Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mirandes will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Albacete and Logrones when they host Rayo Vallecano at their Estadio Municipal de Anduva on Matchday 21. Mirandes did not kick off 2021 in style, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Tuesday’s football match. Los Vallecanos, on the other hand, aim to build on the Copa del Rey win over Elche.
The capital club are on a five-game winning run in all competitions, and they are eager to move a little closer to automatic promotion places. Even though Rayo Vallecano are not regarded as good travellers, away win should be considered as Mirandes suffered yet another dip in form. Talented attacker Antonin continue to impress in the 2020/21 Segunda Division campaign, and we are positive that he is going to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
