Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following a 1-0 win at Sporting Gijon, Almeria will look to retain top position in the standings when they host Burgos to their Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos on day 15 of the new La Liga2 campaign. The Andalusians are determined to secure automatic promotion, but head coach Rubi must warn his men against complacency. Lazo, who scored the winner in midweek, is pushing for a start, while Carrico is likely to miss out through injury.
Burgos, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Tenerife and Zaragoza in the previous two league fixtures. The newcomers have been struggling in front of goal of late, and given Almeria’s four-game winning run in the Spanish second tier, the underdogs are unlikely to grab something from Sunday’s clash. The two teams meet for the first time ever in La Liga2.
