Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
A highly-anticipated football game between Albacete and Burgos will bring down the curtain on the La Liga 2 round 6. Albacete aim to recover from a 2-0 loss to Tenerife, with the team eyeing their second home win of the process, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for El Queso Mecanico. Pedro Benito and Higinio Marin should be the only absentees in the home team.
Bolo’s men, on the other hand, continue with their old habit of producing excellent displays at home, while struggling on the travels. Since Albacete are a real force to be reckoned with at home as well, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Castile and Leon with their hands empty. Barring any fresh injury worries, Bolo is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Eibar at the weekend.
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.
