Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Valladolid will be aiming to put an end to their three-game losing run in La Liga 2 when they host Alcorcon at their Estadio Jose Zorilla on Matchday 7. La Pucela failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, and, no doubt, they are eager to put an end to the negative trend. Head coach Rojo Martin could opt to make changes to the starting XI that suffered a 1-0 loss at Girona, with all Toni, Leon, Plata, and Queiros pushing for a start.
Alcorcon, on the other hand, suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Almeria in their last league match. Since los Alfareros are determined to return to winning ways in Segunda Division as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Nine goals in total have been netted in the previous four meetings between the two sides.
Highlighted Player (Óscar Plano):
A Madrid-born attacking midfielder, Oscar Plano was given a unique opportunity not many footballers get at the beginning of their fledgling careers. As a talented youngster making his first football steps with a local side of Mostoles, Oscar Plano was soon grabbed by mighty Real Madrid.
Having spent eight years going through youth setups of the La Liga heavyweights, Plano was given his competitive debut at Real Madrid C in 2010. A season later earned him a promotion to Real Madrid’s B setup where in three seasons in total he made 63 league appearances and scored 7 goals. Having become fully aware that a chance to represent one of the biggest clubs in the world might be unachievable, Oscar Plano moved to Alcoron in 2014.
More than a 100 matches in three years at Santo Domingo made him one of the key players for Los Alfareros. The Spanish midfielder made a great contribution with helping Valladolid secure promotion to Spanish top flight in 2017/18 with 44 La Liga 2 appearances and 6 goals.
Highlighted Team (Alcorcon):
Founded on July 20, 1971, Alcorcon have been competing in Segunda Division since the 2010/11 season. Los Alfareros welcome their rivals at Santo Domingo, the stadium opened in 1999. The venue has the capacity of 5,100 people. Alcorcon have made it to the Segunda Division playoffs on several occasions, but they have never participated in La Liga.
The club’s biggest success in Copa del rey came in the 2009/10 season when they made it to the last 16 of the prestigious competition. Alcorcon suffered a 3-2 (on agg.) loss to Racing Santander in the round of 16. The club’s home colour is yellow, while their away kit is mainly blue.
Los Alfareros played their first official game on September 8, 1971, with the team losing 2-0 to Atletico Madrid youth team. The likes of Cordoba and Leganes are regarded as the club’s main rivals, while David Rodriguez is the club’s all-time top goalscorer.
