Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sabadell will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Albacete when the two teams take on each other at Estadi de la Nova Creu Alta. Sabadell aim to escape the relegation zone in the La Liga 2 standings, and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Los Arlequinats have drawn the previous five home games, but home win should be considered this time out.
Albacete, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team losing each of their last three league fixtures. Alejandro Menendez’s troops are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Catalonia, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Sabadell’s party at Estadi de la Nova Creu Alta. In the first half of the season Albacete outplayed Sabadell 3-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. Defender Bayomo is banned for the visitors.

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.
