Gimnastic vs Alcorcon
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Sunday, 14 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Nou Estadi de Tarragona (Tarragona).
Gimnastic Tarragona saw a glimmer of hope when they clinched their maiden league victory beating Osasuna 1-0 at home in mid-September. Nonetheless, it is still their lone win of the campaign as they remained winless in three following ties. Nastic Granes thus sit third from bottom coming into the 9th round clash against in-form Alcorcon on Sunday evening at Nou Estadi de Tarragona.
A real turnaround in form is thus required for Jose Antonio Gordillo if he is to keep the head coach job and release some of the huge pressure the local crowd has out in after such a slow start. Nevertheless, it is really hard to expect such turnaround here against Alcorcon who have been flying high of late.
Gimnastic vs Alcorcon: Head-to-head
Alcorcon were the dominant force in this match-up over the last couple of years.
Los Alfareros won five and drew two of last seven encounters with Gimnastic.
Nastic Granes scored just two goals in last seven matches with Alcorcon.
Gimnastic vs Alcorcon: Prediction
The head to head trend could likely be continued here based on Alcorcon’s superb form. The visitors well confounded pre-season expectations and will come into this off the back of four wins and a draw in last five games in all competitions.
The head coach Cristobal has reasons to be proud of his side’s defensive efforts as Los Alfareros kept seven subsequent clean sheets coming into this Gimnastic tie.
Such form climbed Alcorcon as high as fourth in the league ladder establishing themselves as genuine promotional contenders this early in the season.
Based on both the current form and the head to head record, we just have to stick to the visitors and back them to pick up a clean sheet victory here. The away win is paid at 2.50 odds, while you’ll get the same price for Alcorcon’s clean sheet pick.
