Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Albacete play host to Elche at their Estadio Carlos Belmonte on day 14 of the new Segunda Division campaign. El Queso Mecanico do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team losing four of their last five games and given their difficulties up front, home win should not be considered. Antonio Cristian is pushing for a recall to the starting XI, while Sergi Maestre continues to miss out with a tendon injury. Fellow midfielder Pedro Benito is a major doubt.
Los Franjiverdes, on the other hand, have been producing fine displays in La Liga 2 of late, with the team beating both Huesca and Tenerife, while eliminating CE Europa in the Copa del Rey. Given Albacete’s poor form in the Spanish second tier, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s clash. Both Sergio Leon Limones and John Donald Chetauya are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team.
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.
