Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Alcorcon will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over promotion hopefuls Real Valladolid when they host Ferrol to their Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo on Friday afternoon. Los Alfareros aim to keep on climbing the standings, but they will have to showcase their quality on the field. Barring any fresh injury worries, Fran Fernandez is unlikely to make changes to the team that faced La Pucela at the weekend.
Meanwhile, the newcomers made a promising start to the season, with the team beating both Elche (1-0) and Sporting Gijon (2-0), while sharing the spoils with Real Oviedo. Ferrol are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Friday’s encounter, but preventing Alcorcon from finding the net in front of home fans is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we predict that one goal will separate the two sides at the end of this match. As for the visitors, Chuca has joined fellow midfielder Luca Ferrone in the recovery room.
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.
