Albacete vs Malaga
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Tuesday, 4 June 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Carlos Belmonte (Albacete).
Albacete host Malaga in one of the most exciting ties of the penultimate 41st Matchday in Spanish Segunda Division on Sunday night at Estadio Carlos Belmonte.
Boquerones made a massive step towards securing promotional play-offs with a phenomenal thread of three successive wins in past three rounds. They locked their defensive line allowing just one goal during the winning run.
The visitors now sit fourth in the league ladder and have an opportunity to move lock on points with third-placed Albacete with a victory here.
Nonetheless, making it four wins on the bounce will be quite a significant challenge for Victor Sanchez and his troops here.
Albacete have been almost impeccable in their own backyard so far in the season. They only suffered first home loss of the entire campaign two weeks ago when they fell 0-1 to second-placed Granada.
It was the match which denied them a chance for the top-two finish and an automatic promotion to the top flight. Queso Mecanico rebounded from it instantly, though, beating Sporting Gijon 0-2 on the road last weekend.
Albacete vs Malaga: Head-to-head
It’s been a whole decade since these two sides last played each other before this season.
Malaga edged past Albacete 2-1 when outfits battled it out in October last year at Estadio La Rosaleda.
Overall, teams have four wins apiece coming into their 12th encounter.
Albacete vs Malaga: Prediction
Luis Miguel Ramis has done an incredible job with his Albacete team since taking charge a year ago. Queso Mecanico well confounded their pre-season ambitions as they have secured the promotional play-offs.
Albacete enjoyed a strong spell of form in recent weeks. They lost just two of last eleven league outings and defeats came against top two teams in the division. As mentioned above, they lost just 1 of 20 home games in the season.
Given Malaga’s impressive spell of form in recent matches, the draw somehow seems to be the most likable to happen of three outcomes.
