Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Albacete will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Malaga when they take on Mirandes in the La Liga 2 Matchday 35. El Queso Mecanico are seven points behind the safe zone, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for them. Even though Albacete are on a four-match losing run in Segunda Division, we believe that home win should be considered. It has to be noted that El Queso Mecanico are after their third consecutive win at home ground.
Los Rojillos, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the standings, with the team having little to play for in the season finale. Mirandes failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Logrones, and given the importance of Sunday’s match for Albacete, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed. In the first half of the season Albacete recorded a routine 2-0 win over Mirandes.

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.

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 (Mirandes):
Mirandes is a Spanish club founded on May 3, 1927. Los Rojillos compete in Segunda division, with the team still eyeing their first ever promotion to La Liga. Mirandes’ home colours are red and black, while their away kit is mainly light blue.
Mirandes did remarkably well to make it to the Copa del Rey semis in the 2019/20 season, with the team outplaying the likes of Celta, Villarreal, and Sevilla in the process. Real Sociedad, though, proved to be a big catch for Mirandes in the Spanish Cup semis. Los Rojillos welcome their rivals at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. The stadium was opened back in 1950, with the venue being able to host 5,759 spectators.
Mirandes played their first game on June 4, 1927, with the team defeating Arabarra thanks to Fidel Angulo’s goal. Zaragoza and Alaves are considered one of the club’s main rivals. Los Rojillos have won Castilla and Leon Cup on two occasions (2011, 2012).
