Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Alcorcon and Albacete face each other at Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo in the opening match of the La Liga 2 round 9. Los Alfareros made a slow start to the season, with the team recording only one win in the process to date, but Tuesday’s clash could be the turning point for the home side. Head coach Fran Fernandez has a luxury to field the best possible side against El Queso Mecanico.
Albacete, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team producing fine displays at home, while struggling on the road. As the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we predict that El Queso Mecanico will return to Castile-La Mancha with their hands empty. As for the visiting team, all Agus Medina, Pedro Benito, and Sergi Maestre are out of contention through injuries.
Highlighted Team (Alcorcon):
Founded on July 20, 1971, Alcorcon have been competing in Segunda Division since the 2010/11 season. Los Alfareros welcome their rivals at Santo Domingo, the stadium opened in 1999. The venue has the capacity of 5,100 people. Alcorcon have made it to the Segunda Division playoffs on several occasions, but they have never participated in La Liga.
The club’s biggest success in Copa del rey came in the 2009/10 season when they made it to the last 16 of the prestigious competition. Alcorcon suffered a 3-2 (on agg.) loss to Racing Santander in the round of 16. The club’s home colour is yellow, while their away kit is mainly blue.
Los Alfareros played their first official game on September 8, 1971, with the team losing 2-0 to Atletico Madrid youth team. The likes of Cordoba and Leganes are regarded as the club’s main rivals, while David Rodriguez is the club’s all-time top goalscorer.
