Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Leganes will look to build on a 2-0 win over Alcorcon when they face Albacete in the Segunda Division round 3. The capital club quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Andorra, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to return to the Spanish top flight. With no fresh injury worries to report, head coach Borja Jimenez is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated los Alfareros at the weekend.
El Queso Mecanico, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back draw with Espanyol and Amorebieta. Albacete proved to be a big catch for Leganes last season, winning both head-to-head meetings, and that is the main reason why we predict the visitors will grab something from Sunday’s encounter. Midfielder Pedro Benito misses out with a tendon injury, speaking of the visiting side.
Highlighted Team (Leganes):
Leganes are a Spanish football club that have mostly been playing in lower leagues. Los Pepineros play their home games at Batarque (Madrid) and the capacity of the stadium is just 8,138. Leganes secured their promotion to the Spanish La Liga for the first time ever in 2016 and, no doubt, that is considered the club’s biggest success.
Leganes’ bitterest rivals are fellow capital club Getafe and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the South Madrid derby.
The colour of the team’s home kit is white and blue, whilst their away kits are green. The likes of Pierre Webo, Samuel Eto’o, Ivan Zarandona, Jose Chamot, Catanha, Ruben Falcon, Jordi Lardin and Pedro Lago are famous players who were part of the Batarque outfit in the past. Lady Maria Victoria Pavon is the first female president in the history of the club and she has been in charge of the club since 2009.
