Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Valladolid will look to extend their winning run to four games when they host Burgos to their Estadio Jose Zorilla on Matchday 23. La Pucela are determined to secure automatic promotion to La Liga, and a win over Burgos could see them climb to top two in the standings. A man to keep an eye in the home team will be Shon Weissman, who managed to find the net in each of the previous three league fixtures. The good news for the hosts is that all Olivas, Alcaraz, Perez, and Vallejo have recovered from coronavirus.
Burgos, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the standings with 29 points in their pocket. The newcomers were producing fine displays in December, but seeing that Valladolid are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on La Pucela. In the first half of the season Burgos crushed Valladolid 3-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
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.
