Las Palmas vs Almeria
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Sunday, 2 June 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Estadio de Gran Canaria (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria).
Las Palmas host Almeria in a low-profile Segunda Division tie on Sunday evening at Estadio de Gran Canaria.
With nothing at stake, we don’t have reasons to witness a highly competitive affair. The hosts could potentially be eyeing a top-half finish with results in last two ties of the season against Almeria and Numancia. They do have a nice chance to finish the season on a high at least when it comes to displays in front of their fans.
La Union Deportiva won three on the spin at Estadio de Gran Canaria coming into this 41st round fixture against Almeria.
Pepe Mel’s men were quite inspired in their build-up play having notched eight goals during the mentioned three-win streak at home. The latest of wins came against relegation strugglers Rayo Majadahonda (3-2).
Nonetheless, Las Palmas failed to perform last weekend when they fell 2-0 away at champions Osasuna.
Las Palmas vs Almeria: Head-to-head
Las Palmas are playing against the head to head tradition here.
La Union Deportiva only won 2 of 17 matches against Almeria over the course of history.
As many as eight head to head games between these two likes ended without a winner.
Rojiblancos claimed a demolishing 3-0 win when teams met each other in the first part of the season at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos.
Las Palmas vs Almeria: Prediction
The visitors highly improved their Segunda Division position compared to the previous term, but the recent drop in form excluded them from the promotional challenge.
Rojiblancos actually won just one of past five league games, a thread which kept them at 9th place. They are eight points short of the promotional play-offs with just two games left to play.
The team led by Francisco Fernandez struggled for goals recently. They failed to find the back of the net in last two rounds which saw them lose 1-0 at Mallorca and draw 0-0 to Alcorcon.
There are no reasons for these two likes to provide strong defensive efforts here which is why we recognize the value in backing goals at both ends at the odds of 1.72.
Braver tipsters can also try with Las Palmas to clinch their fourth consecutive home win at 2.37.
