Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After eliminating Zaragoza in Copa del Rey last 64, Alcorcon will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Albacete in the La Liga 2 round 21. Alcorcon aim to escape the relegation zone, and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways as they play host to the rock-bottom side. In their last home game in Segunda Division los Alfareros defeated Cartagena 2-1.
Albacete, on the other hand, kicked off 2021 with a 1-1 draw with Malaga. El Queso Mecanico showed character in their last league match, with the team coming from behind to share the spoils with los Boquerones, but given Alcorcon’s fine home record, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Castille – La Mancha empty-handed. Keep in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in seven of the previous eight meetings between the two clubs.
Highlighted Player (Richard Boateng):
Born in Accra, Ghana on July 10, 1992, Richard Boateng is a midfielder who plays for Alcorcon in Segunda Division. Boateng is a product of Liberty Babies football academy, with the Ghanaian starting his senior career at Liberty Professionals. In 2010 he moved to Spain, signing a deal with Granada.
During his spell with the Andalusian outfit, he mainly played for Granada B, but he spent a couple of years at loan at Cadiz B and San Roque as well. Richard Boateng made only one appearance for the Granada senior team in the league.
The Ghana international played for the likes of Aris Limassol, Extremadura, Melilla, and Oviedo as well before joining Alcorcon in 2019. His primary position is central midfielder, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and his contract with Alcorcon should expire in June 2021.
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.
