Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After sharing the spoils with Oviedo at the weekend, Ponferradina will be looking to return to winning ways in Segunda Division when they take on Leganes at Estadio El Toralin. La Ponfe are undefeated in the previous six league fixtures, with the team recording three wins in the last four home games in the Spanish second tier. Both Yuri and Larrea are pushing for a start for the hosts.
Logrones, on the other hand, are eyeing their first league win since January 2, 2021. The newcomers are on an 11-game winless run in Segunda Division, and seeing that Ponferradina aim to climb to the playoffs berth, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. Even though midfielder Jaime Sierra Mateos returns from suspension, home win should be considered as Logrones do not seem to be at the top of their game.
Highlighted Player (Curro Sanchez):
Curro Sanchez is a Spanish footballer who plays for Ponferradina in Segunda Division. Born in La Palma del Condado on January 3, 1996, Sanchez began his youth career at Siempre Alegres, but in 2007 he was spotted by Sevilla scouts.
Curro Sanchez did not hesitate at all, signing a contract with the famous La Liga side. To make things even better for the Andalusian, he made his senior debut with Sevilla in La liga on May 4, 2016 in a 1-1 draw with Deportivo La Coruna. Curro Sanchez then joined Numancia, where he scored 13 goals in 34 appearances in Segunda Division for los Numantinos.
In 2020 he signed a deal with La Liga 2 side Ponferradina. Sanchez made his la Ponfe debut in a 2-0 win over Albacete on September 20, 2020. Even though right winger is his primary position, Curro Sanchez is capable of producing fine performances as an attacking midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Logrones):
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.
