Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sabadell play host to Alcorcon at their Estadi de la Nova Creu Alta in a midweek clash. Sabadell impressed in Segunda B last term, but they do not seem to be competitive at this level. The newcomers made a slow start to the season, with the team suffering a loss in each of their first five league fixtures. Considering that the game will be played behind closed doors, home win should not be considered.
Alcorcon, on the other hand, are eager to put an end to their three-match losing run in La Liga 2. Los Alfareros will not have a better chance than this to get back on course, and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from the midweek clash. In their last meeting in a competitive match, five years ago, Alcorcon defeated Sabadell thanks to Dakonam’s goal, and the history is likely to repeat itself.
Highlighted Team (Alcorcon):
Founded on July 20, 1971, Alcorcon have been competing in Segunda Division since the 2010/11 season. Los Alfareros welcome their rivals at Santo Domingo, the stadium opened in 1999. The venue has the capacity of 5,100 people. Alcorcon have made it to the Segunda Division playoffs on several occasions, but they have never participated in La Liga.
The club’s biggest success in Copa del rey came in the 2009/10 season when they made it to the last 16 of the prestigious competition. Alcorcon suffered a 3-2 (on agg.) loss to Racing Santander in the round of 16. The club’s home colour is yellow, while their away kit is mainly blue.
Los Alfareros played their first official game on September 8, 1971, with the team losing 2-0 to Atletico Madrid youth team. The likes of Cordoba and Leganes are regarded as the club’s main rivals, while David Rodriguez is the club’s all-time top goalscorer.
