With the national teams taking a break from their important games on Thursday and Friday before their next fixtures, the big newsmaker of the weekend in European football is the Spanish Segunda. The weekend will end with Las Palmas clash with Leganes, which takes place on Monday. Who will be successful? The website has their own predictions for this match on March 28, 2022.

Las Palmas may in fact end the season on a downward spiral
Pio Pio played in the Primera in 2015-2018. But having slipped down to a lower division, the Canary Islands club proved not particularly ambitious there. It didn’t (or perhaps didn’t want to) swing for a return to La Liga: 12th place, then twice in a row 9th. And now, García Pimienta’s charges will finish at more or less the same level: above the equator of the standings, but below the top-6, a position unrealistic to overcome in the remaining matches. In 32 games they have 44 points, while the worst of the play-off zone, Ponferradina, have 51. So it’s no surprise that the results are not particularly impressive. Last round, Las Palmas won, but it was only the 2nd such success in the last 10 rounds.
Leganes have been seriously disappointing this season
The Pickle Pickers have managed to stay in the Primera for several years in a row, thinly or thinly. But, after being relegated, they finished in 3rd place in the last edition of the Segunda. But it was not enough to return directly and the play-offs ended in failure. There were hopes that the 2nd attempt would be better – but in fact, it was a failure, at least as far as expectations and results are concerned. Their total of 42 points, enough to put them in the relegation zone (the top underdogs had only 30), but too few to really give any real hope of climbing up the top six, at least. Although it has to be admitted that Leganes have been doing quite well in recent weeks: no defeats in 8 rounds in a row, and wins and draws in this stretch are evenly distributed.
Last season in Segunda, the clubs traded home wins. The trend continued, with Leganes winning handily, 4-1, in November.
Both sides, by and large, don’t have a particular reason to play – the main thing for them is to get through the season at the very least. So we expect “less than 2.5 goals” (odds – 1.66).
