Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Albacete will be aiming to put an end to their seven-game winless run when they take on Racing Santander in the Segunda Division round 27. El Queso Mecanico are eager to escape the relegation zone and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against los Racinguistas. Ruben Albes should have a full squad to choose from for Sunday’s encounter. Racing Santander, on the other hand, have been in a promising form of late, with the team beating both Amorebieta and Espanyol in the previous two league matches.
The visitors aim to regain their spot in top six and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Albacete’s dressing room. Both Clement Grenier and Alvaro Mantilla are major doubts, speaking of the away side. Juan Arana is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors after finding the net in the triumph over los Periquitos.
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.
