Albacete – Malaga, Segunda Division Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ALBACETE - MALAGA
Albacete failed in an attempt to defeat Granada and replace them in the last round of Segunda. This meant that for Granada the chances were enormous, and in winning in this round would have guaranteed their second position. Their match is not going to be easy, however – visiting Mallorca. This means that Albacete must win against Malaga to have theoretical chances for the 2nd position.
The victory for Malaga would guarantee a place in the top 6 and playoffs. Considering Malaga’s strong game away from home in recent months and the strong form at home for Albacete overall, this game will certainly be quite tough for both teams. Malaga are in a series of 3 consecutive wins and play very well and at the highest level at the moment.
For both teams, victory is of fundamental importance. But here draw would not be considered a tragedy. We expect the game not to be particularly spectacular. The defensive approach and the strong defense are a serious factor for both teams. Albacete has the 4th best defense in the league, while Málaga is the 2nd best one in the league. We are expecting tactical upheaval and not so many chances, which will make one of the two teams simply show efficiency if they are given the opportunity. Prediction – Under 2.5 goals at 1.52.
9 of the last 11 home games for Albacete have finished under 2.5 goals
10 of Malaga’s last 11 away games ended with under 2.5 goals
