Almeria vs Las Palmas
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Saturday, 13 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos (Almeria).
Almeria ended the three-win thread seven days ago when they fell 1-0 away at Cordoba. They still made a massive progress compared to the poor campaign in the previous term of Segunda Division when Los Rojiblancos barely avoided the drop to the third tier of Spanish football.
They sit 11th after 12 rounds of the competition thanks to three consecutive wins and they’ll generally head into the Las Palmas tie high on confidence aiming to build on these successes.
The visitors are, on the other hand, hoping to make it a one-year loan spell in Segunda. They began the season in a tremendous fashion, but won just one point in last two games to drop down to third place in the ladder. The Canaries failed to find the net in last two matches against Sporting Gijon and Alcorcon. Can they turn it around here at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos?
Almeria vs Las Palmas: Head-to-head
It’s been five years since these two likes last played each other.
They were battling it out in Copa del Rey back then when Almeria advanced 3-1 on aggregate thanks to the away victory at Estadio de Gran Canaria.
The draw was the most common of the outcomes in the history of head to head matches between these two sides. It happened on 8 occasions, while Las Palmas won just 2 of 16 games against Los Rojiblancos.
Almeria vs Las Palmas: Prediction
Almeria have generally been playing tight defensive-minded football so far on the season. They scored and conceded eight goals in eight games. Such low-scoring trend should be continued on Saturday against Las Palmas who were toothless in the final third in the last couple of affairs.
Also, knowing that the Canaries come into this winless in last two league games, we see the value in backing the hosts not to lose at 1.57. The draw is a perfect value bet at 3.00, while the Under 2.5 goals FT seems as the safest of betting options, paid at 1.57 as well.
