Leonesa vs Lorca – Segunda B
Thursday 8th June 19:00, Municipal Reino de León
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Cultural Leonesa hold a slight advantage heading into the decisive play-off final leg after they secured a 1-1 draw at Lorca last week.
The two sides both won their regional divisions and made it through tricky play-off semi-finals to reach this point, and tomorrow one of the two will be crowned the Segunda B champions.
Leonesa were always my favourites to claim the title as they have such great scoring power via Benja, Álex Gallar, and Julen Colinas all of whom have scored into double figures in league goals this season. Only Chumbi has reached that milestone for tomorrows visitors, but Lorca have shown the defensive qualities needed to stifle even the toughest of attacking threats during their domestic campaign, so perhaps we should not count them out just yet.
An early goal for the hosts would, for me, almost be too much for Lorca to come back from, as Leonesa are so strong when the go in front, especially in their own back yard.
I’m hoping we get to see two sides really go for it tomorrow, and my money is on both of the teams to score and for there to be over 2.5 goals in the game, which I believe Leonesa will win.

Leonesa vs Lorca Stats
These two clubs met for the very first time in their history last week, and there was nothing to separate the pair on that occasion which suggests we should be in for another close game tomorrow evening.
Visitors Leonesa took the lead through Toni Suárez after just 2 minutes of the 1st leg, and the hosts might well have feared for the worst.
As the clocked ticked away the match appeared to be heading for a defeat for Lorca, until in the 86th minute the referee awarded a penalty and Gonzalo Poley made no mistake to level the teams ahead of a huge 2nd leg in Leon.
