Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Valladolid will look to bounce back from a heavy 4-1 loss to Amorebieta when they welcome Mirandes to their Estadio Jose Zorilla on Matchday 15. La Pucela defeated Eibar 2-0 in their last home game in La Liga2, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Mirandes. Midfielder Fede should keep his place in the starting XI after finding the net in the midweek defeat, while both Plano and Aguado are pushing for a start.
Los Rojillos, on the other hand, did well to beat Lugo 3-2 at home in their last league match. Mirandes did well to put an end to their three-game winless run on Wednesday evening, but seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on Valladolid. Defender Odei Onaindia is likely to miss the game with injury for the visiting team.
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 (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).
