Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Espanyol will be aiming to make amends for the unsuccessful 2019/20 La Liga campaign when they take on Albacete in the opening match of the season. Los Periquitos are eyeing a quick return to the Spanish elite division, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in their opener. New boss Vicente Moreno is widely expected to help the team improve their game, but you should bear in mind that the likes of Iturraspe, Naldo, Calleri, Ferreyra, Victor Sanchez, Javi Lopez, and Pipa are no longer part of the team.
Albacete finished the last Segunda Division campaign only one point clear of the relegation zone, and, no doubt, the team’s main goal for the new season is to secure yet another La Liga 2 survival. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Espanyol have turned their RCDE Stadium into a real fortress.
