Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Almeria and Sabadell take on each other at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos in the Segunda Division round 22. Almeria are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions, and they must be high on spirits following a 5-0 crushing of Alaves. The Andalusians are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Sunday afternoon.
Summer signing Umar Sadiq, who has been scoring goals for fun in all competitions this season, will be the man to watch in the home team. Sabadell, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous five league fixtures, but Almeria will pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. In the first half of the season Almeria defeated Sabadell 2-1 at Estadi de la Nova Creu Alta.
