Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following a goalless draw with Burgos, Real Sociedad B will look to return to winning ways in La Liga 2 when they take on Mirandes on Matchday 32. The Basques were on a three-game winning run before the last weekend’s draw, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s clash. Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is unlikely to make changes to the team that shared the spoils with Burgos.
Los Rojillos, on the other hand, recorded a morale-boosting win over Cartagena, with the team a bit moving from the relegation zone. Anyhow, home win should be considered as the Basques want this triumph more than the visitors. Cesar Gelabert and Simon Moreno are sidelined with injuries, while talented attacker Sergio Camello should continue to lead the line for the visiting side after finding the net in the triumph over Cartagena.
Highlighted Player (David Silva):
David Silva is a product of Valencia’s youth system. Born on 8 January, 1986, the highly rated footballer made his debut in the 2004/2005 campaign and went on to score a total of 21 goals for the Estadio de Mestalla outfit. In 2010, the Spanish midfielder signed a deal with Premier League side Manchester City and he has already won two domestic championships with the free-spending club.
In the 2015/2016 season David Silva and Co. faced Real Madrid in the Champions League semis, but the Spanish giants proved to be a big catch for the Citizens in the two-legged tie. Silva plays as an attacking midfielder, but he is capable of playing as winger or a second striker as well.
He is well known for his possession-retaining qualities and, as a result, he got the nicknames “Merlin” and “El Mago”. David Silva won the 2014 FIFA World Cup trophy with Spain, while winning Euro 2008 and Euro 2012 with La Roja as well.
Highlighted Team (Mirandes):
Mirandes is a Spanish club founded on May 3, 1927. Los Rojillos compete in Segunda division, with the team still eyeing their first ever promotion to La Liga. Mirandes’ home colours are red and black, while their away kit is mainly light blue.
Mirandes did remarkably well to make it to the Copa del Rey semis in the 2019/20 season, with the team outplaying the likes of Celta, Villarreal, and Sevilla in the process. Real Sociedad, though, proved to be a big catch for Mirandes in the Spanish Cup semis. Los Rojillos welcome their rivals at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. The stadium was opened back in 1950, with the venue being able to host 5,759 spectators.
Mirandes played their first game on June 4, 1927, with the team defeating Arabarra thanks to Fidel Angulo’s goal. Zaragoza and Alaves are considered one of the club’s main rivals. Los Rojillos have won Castilla and Leon Cup on two occasions (2011, 2012).
