Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Carlos Belmonte will host Thursday’s football game between Albacete and Sporting de Gijon. Albacete are undefeated in the previous six league fixtures, but they need to return to winning ways as soon as possible if they are to avoid relegation to Segunda B. Lucas Alcaraz’s men are only one point clear of bottom three, meaning that the game against Sporting is of big importance for them.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive. Sporting de Gijon, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of beating Albacete at Estadio Carlos Belmonte. Considering that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Sporting’s last six league fixtures, a low-scoring affair is on the cards. In their last meeting in Albacete the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
