Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
All eyes will be on Campo de Futbol de Vallecas when Rayo Vallecano and Fuenlabrada take on each other in the Segunda Division derby. Los Vallecanos have been struggling to find their best form at the start of the season, but they are still sitting in top six ahead of the midweek clash. The capital club are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and given Fuenlabrada’s defensive performance in a 3-0 loss at Almeria, reputable bookies see Andoni Iraola’s troops as favourites to win Thursday’s football game.
Fuenla produced their worst display of the season in the 3-0 defeat to Almeria, and we predict that Rayo Vallecano are going to take advantage of the current atmosphere in the away team’s dressing room. A man to watch in the home team will be Isi, who has found his goalscoring touch of late.
Highlighted Player (Rubén Pérez):
Rubén Pérez is a Spanish footballer who was born in Ecija on April 26, 1989. The 178-cm tall midfielder is a product of Atletico Madrid youth academy, but he made no more than one appearance in La Liga for los Rojiblancos. Ruben Perez, though, played 53 games for Atletico Madrid B before joining Deportivo La Coruna on loan.
The Spanish footballer spent some time on loan at Getafe, Real Betis, Elche and Torino as well before joining Granada in 2015. After making 31 appearances for the Andalusian side from 2015 to 2018, Ruben Perez joined Leganes on loan in 2016.
In 2018 he signed a permanent deal with Leganes and he has been playing for the capital club ever since. His main position is defensive midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a central midfielder as well. Ruben Perez has 5 caps for Spain U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior squad.
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.
