Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Albacete and Logrones square off against each other at Estadio Carlos Belmonte in the La Liga 2 round 28. Albacete aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, and they should take advantage of Logrones’ current form in the Spanish second tier. El Queso Mecanico will be without experienced defender Alvaro Arroyo in Saturday’s clash as the 32-year-old was sent off in the goalless draw with Sabadell.
Logrones, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the 2020/21 season, but they do not seem to be at the top of their game ahead of the trip to Castile-La Mancha. Anyhow, the rock-bottom hosts want this win more than the newcomers, who suffered three defeats in the previous four league fixtures. It has to be noted that Sergio Rodriguez’s men had no more than one shot on target in the 1-0 loss Mallorca.
Highlighted Player (Tomeu Nadal):
Born in Manacor, Spain on February 8, 1989, Tomeu Nadal is a 187-cm tall goalkeeper who plays for Albacete in Segunda Division. Nadal is a product of the Mallorca football school, but he played for the reserve squad at senior level.
After making 47 appearances with Mallorca B in the league, the Spanish shot-stopper joined Getafe B in 2011 where he played 39 league games. Following his spell with Gimnastic where he failed to establish himself as a first-team regular, Tomeu Nadal returned to Albacete in 2016.
He has been playing an important role in the Estadio Carlos Belmonte outfit ever since he made his debut on August 21, 2016 in a 3-0 win over Zamudio. He kept his first clean sheet in the match as well. His preferred foot is right, and his contract with Albacete should expire on June 30, 2021. Tomeu Nadal has never scored a goal in his career.
Highlighted Team (Logrones):
UD Logrones is a Spanish football team that participates in Spanish Segunda Division. Union Deportiva Logrones were founded in 2009 following the extinction of CD Logrones, with the team competing in Segunda B until the 2019/20 season.
In 2020 UD Logrones secured promotion to Segunda division as they were sitting in top position in the standings when the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The club is well known for their white shirts with red stripes, while blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Union Deportiva Logrones play their home games at Las Gaunas, the venue with the capacity of 16,000 spectators.
UD Logrones take on Sporting Gijon on their debut in the Spanish second tier. It has to be noted that the club chiefs made a three-year collaboration with La Liga side Eibar, which saw their footballers going on loan to Logrones to gain some experience.
