Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following a 2-2 draw with Zaragoza, Levante will look to get back on course when they take on Albacete in their first game of the year. Los Levantinos have been scoring goals for fun of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play in Saturday’s clash. All Sergio Postigo, Ivan Romero, and Andres Garcia are sidelined with injuries, while experienced defender Ruben Vezo is a major doubt and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
El Queso Mecanico, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in festive fixtures, with the team beating Villarreal B, losing to Albacete, while sharing the spoils with Eldense. As Albacete are not regarded as good travellers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Levante. Samuel Shashoua remains on the sidelines with injury, while both Alvaro Rodriguez and Julio Alonso will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
