Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
All eyes will be on RCDE Stadium when Espanyol and Almeria face each other in the Segunda Division derby. Los Periquitos are eager to overtake Mallorca in top position, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the fellow promotion-chasing team. The Catalan side are after their fifth consecutive league win, and despite Almeria’s brilliant away record, bookies see los Periquitos as favourites to win the match.
The attacking partnership of Puado and De Tomas has been in a perfect working order of late, and we predict that the duo will make life difficult for the opposition defenders. The Andalusians, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in La Liga 2. Several first-team regulars were rested in the Copa del Rey win over L Hospitalet, but Jose Gomes is likely to field the best possible side against Espanyol. Anyhow, home win should be considered as los Periquitos have turned their RCDE Stadium into a real fotress.
