Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Albacete will look to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Mirandes when they take on Eldense in the La Liga 2 round 21. El Queso Mecanico are sitting in the danger zone, only five points clear of bottom four, meaning that Tuesday’s clash is of big importance for the home side. Alvaro Rodriguez Perez limped off with injury in the last league match, with Juan Manuel Garcia likely to step up.
Eldense, on the other hand, are eager to put an end to their five-game winless run in the Spanish second tier. As los Azulgranas looked sharp in front of goal in a 3-3 draw with Racing Santander at the weekend, we are tempted to place our bets on both teams to score. As for the away team, Christian Montes is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute at the weekend, while fellow defender David Timor misses out through suspension.
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.
