Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sabadell will look to avoid relegation to Segunda B when they take on Mirandes in the decider at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. Sabadell picked up vital three points from the game against Ponferradina, but they face yet another must-win situation against Mirandes. Since Lugo and Alcorcon face Rayo Vallecano and Espanyol respectively in the last game of the season, a win over Mirandes should see Sabadell secure the La Liga 2 survival.
Stoichkov, who scored his 10th goal of the season in Monday’s clash, will be the man to keep an eye on in the home team. Los Rojillos, on the other hand, missed out on a place in the playoffs, and, as a result, they have nothing to play for in Sunday’s game. The relegation-threatened visitors want this win more than the hosts, and we predict that they are going to prove their worth on the field.

Highlighted Team (Sabadell):
Sabadell is a professional Spanish club based in the autonomous community of Catalonia. Sabadell were founded back in 1903, with the team securing promotion to la liga for the first time during the World War II (1943/44).
Los Arlequinats have never won the national championship, but they did well to make it to the Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) final in 1935. Despite producing fine displays in the process, Sabadell were eventually beaten by Sevilla (0-3) in the title game. Nova Creu Alta is the club’s home ground, with the venue holding up to 11,908 spectators.
The stadium was built on August 20, 1967 by famous Spanish architect Gabriel Bracons Singla. Antonio Vazques (35 goals) is leading Sabadell’s all-time goal-scoring chart. It has to be noted that Sabadell fans have good relations with Bristol Rovers supporters. CD Ebro are seen as one of the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in el Derbi Arlequinado.
