Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Albacete will be looking to extend their impressive winning run in La Liga 2 when they take on Mallorca at Estadio Carlos Belmonte on Matchday 24. Albacete have been in a splendid form in 2021, and they are likely to go for a win in Friday’s football game. Ukraine international Roman Zozulya scored the winner against Oviedo, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Mallorca, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Las Palmas, with the team beating both Rayo Vallecano and Girona in the previous two league fixtures. Los Bermellones are eager to retain top position in the standings, but beating the high-flying hosts at Estadio Carlos Belmonte is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw.
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 (Mallorca):
Thanks to a win over Deportivo La Coruna in the 2018/2019 Segunda Division play-offs final Mallorca secured promotion to Primera Division. Los Bermellones returned to the Spanish top flight following a six-year absence. Over the years Mallorca have turned their Estadi de son Moix into a real fortress, with the team producing much better showings at home than on the travels.
Opened in June 1999, the venue can hold up to 23,142 people. The club based in Balearic Islands are well known for their red shirts with one black stripe and black shorts. Mallorca’s away colours are white and red. Former Barcelona and Inter ace Samuel Eto’o is undisputedly the most notable footballer who played for the club.
Back in 1999 Mallorca made it to the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup final, with the team suffering a 2-1 loss to Lazio in the title game. Four years later los Bermellones won Spanish Copa del Rey, which is considered the club’s biggest success.
