Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Albacete will look to recover from a 2-1 loss to Racing Santander when they take on Andorra on Matchday 8. El Queso Mecanico have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team producing much better showings at home than on the travels and they are surely capable of matching Els Tricolors at their Estadio Carlos Belmonte. All Agus Medina, Pedro Benito, and Sergi Maestre are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Andorra, on the other hand, have been impressive at the back of late and seeing that they are likely to rely on their solid defence in Saturday’s game, we believe that there is a big value in betting on under 2.5 goals. Both Adria Vilanova and Christos Albanis are out of contention with injuries, while experienced midfielder Ruben Bover is pushing for a recall to the starting XI.
Highlighted Team (Albacete):
Established during the World War II (August, 1940), Albacete are a Spanish club that welcome their rivals at Carlos Belmonte, the stadium with the capacity of 17,524 people. Albacete compete in Segunda Division nowadays, but during the 1990s they established themselves as the La Liga regular.
Their best ranking in the Spanish top flight came in the 1991/92 season when they finished the campaign in 7th position in the standings. El Queso Mecanico (Clockwork Cheese) have never represented Spain in European competitions. Legendary Spain international Andres Iniesta is the symbol of the club. Born in Albacete, Iniesta helped his hometown club avoid the bankruptcy in December 2011 as he became the club’s major shareholder.
As a result, Iniesta was honoured with a statue in his home province of Albacete. El Queso Mecanico wear white shirts and white shorts when playing at home, while black and purple are the dominant colours of their away kit.
