Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Valladolid will be aiming to extend their winning run to five games when they take on Mirandes in the La Liga 2 round 10. La Pucela have been making progress week by week and it is no wonder the bookies see them as one of the main favourites for promotion. Even though all Stanko Juric, Raul Moro, Jhonathan Montiel, and Javi Sanchez are sidelined with injuries, home win should be considered as Valladolid seem to be at the top of their game.
Los Rojillos, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Eibar and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling La Pucela’s party at Estadio Jose Zorrilla. All Mathis Lachuer, Diogo Verdasca, and David Vicente are sidelined with injuries, speaking of the visiting team, while both Durdov and Martin are pushing for a start.
Highlighted Player (Jordi Masip):
Jordi Masip is yet another La Masia product. Masip began his youth career at Mercantil, but in 2004 he joined the famous Barcelona football academy. The 180-cm-tall goalkeeper was struggling to establish himself as a first-team regular in Barcelona at senior level, but he played for Barca B in Segunda Division from 2008 to 2014.
After making 79 appearances for Barcelona B, Jordi Masip finally made his senior debut for the Catalan giants on December 16, 2014 in a 8-1 win over Huesca. The two teams faced in Copa del Rey and it has to be noted that Masip made his La liga debut for Barca in a 2-2 draw with Deportivo La Coruna in May, 2014.
In 2017 the Spanish shot-stopper born in Sabadell signed a three-year deal with Real Valladolid. Masip quickly established himself as a first-team regular at La Pucela and you should know that he managed to keep 11 clean sheets in 42 appearances for the club in the 2017/2018 Segunda Division campaign.
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).
