Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
There will be Fireworks when Rayo Vallecano and Leganes face each other at Campo de Futbol de Vallecas in the Segunda Division round 38. Los Vallecanos suffered a 2-0 loss to ten-man Sabadell on Monday, but it has to be noted that they failed to turn their dominance into goals. Since Rayo dropped out of the playoffs berth, we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Leganes. A man to watch in the home team will be former Manchester United winger Bebe, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Leganes, on the other hand, are on the right track to secure a top-six finish. Considering that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we do not believe that Asier Garitano’s troops are going to grab something from the Madrid derby. It has to be noted that important Leganes attacker Borja Baston misses the match through injury.
Highlighted Player (Stole Dimitrievski):
Born in Kumanovo, North Macedonia, Stole Dimitrievski is a 190-cm-tall goalkeeper who plays for Segunda Division side Rayo Vallecano. Dimitrievski started his senior career at Rabotnicki, but he made no more than 18 appearances for the Macedonian outfit in the national championship. In the summer of 2012 he decided to move to Spain, signing a deal with Granada.
The towering shot-stopper made 90 appearances for Granada B, while playing no more than one game for the senior team. Following his spells with Gimnastic, Stole Dimitrievski moved to Rayo Vallecano. The Macedonian goalkeeper made his Rayo debut in La Liga in a 2-2 draw with Villarreal on November 11, 2018, while keeping his first clean sheet in a 1-0 win over Eibar later that month.
His preferred foot is right, and his contract with Rayo Vallecano should expire on June 30, 2024. Speaking of his international career, Dimitrievski made his full debut with the North Macedonia national team on November 12, 2015 in a 4-1 win over Montenegro.
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.
