Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Alcorcon will be aiming to put an end to their three-game winless run in La Liga 2 when they take on Huesca on Matchday 7. Los Alfareros are eager to escape the relegation zone and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at los Azulgranas. The good news for the hosts is that Yan Eteki is back from suspension, but Javier Castro is banned for Saturday’s showdown.
The visitors, on the other hand, sit in the relegation as well and seeing that they will go for a win in the Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo showdown, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Gerard Valentin and Ruben Pulido are major doubts and the duo will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. You should bear in mind, though, that under 2.5 goals have been netted in 12 of the previous 13 meetings between the two sides in the Spanish second tier.
Highlighted Team (Albacete):
Established during the World War II (August, 1940), Albacete are a Spanish club that welcome their rivals at Carlos Belmonte, the stadium with the capacity of 17,524 people. Albacete compete in Segunda Division nowadays, but during the 1990s they established themselves as the La Liga regular.
Their best ranking in the Spanish top flight came in the 1991/92 season when they finished the campaign in 7th position in the standings. El Queso Mecanico (Clockwork Cheese) have never represented Spain in European competitions. Legendary Spain international Andres Iniesta is the symbol of the club. Born in Albacete, Iniesta helped his hometown club avoid the bankruptcy in December 2011 as he became the club’s major shareholder.
As a result, Iniesta was honoured with a statue in his home province of Albacete. El Queso Mecanico wear white shirts and white shorts when playing at home, while black and purple are the dominant colours of their away kit.
