It will be surprising to see the second most important team in Catalonia in the second level. The Parakeets will go all-out for promotion, so expect a high level of intensity from the start. To place the best bet, check out our Albacete vs Espanyol prediction.
The Best Tips and Albacete vs Espanyol Predictions
Espanyol to Win
The Parrales won all three points in their last visit to Albacete, winning 3-0. They won the match in Barcelona with the same result.
Albacete narrowly missed out on the final promotion playoff position but were defeated in the semi-finals by a score of 6-1. My prediction for Albacete vs Espanyol is that the visitors will be ahead after 90 minutes.
Both Teams to Score
One thing that both sides have in common is that they struggled to keep a clean sheet during the preseason. With only the first matchday completed and both teams requiring time for their players to precisely coordinate, I believe both clubs will score.
Espanyol to Score First
Considering only the most recent meetings, we can observe that the Catalan squad scored six goals while The Clockwork Cheese scored none. In the previous season, the home team averaged just over one goal per game. Furthermore, in four of their last five games, they were the first to concede a goal. I think Espanyol will score first.
Albacete vs Espanyol Match Preview and Latest Team News
Last season, the Clockwork Cheese came dangerously close to regaining their place in the top division. However, they were consistently outclassed in critical matches and against teams in the top half of the table.
Coach Ruben Alves will need to focus on these players’ mental toughness for them to overcome challenging situations. Otherwise, they will be relegated to Spain’s second tier for another season.
Despite the visiting club’s sad relegation and the significant players that retired in the summer, Espanyol remains an experienced and high-level team. They stood out from their counterparts in the second level two seasons ago. They returned to the top flight as La Liga 2 champions.
Luis Garcia will be in charge of leading the squad back to the first level of Spanish football. The former player, who was captain of The Parrakets for many years, will now do so from the sidelines.
Albacete vs Espanyol H2H and Stats
More than two years have passed since the last time these two teams met. This decade saw the first appearance of Spanish. The Parrakets dominated both the Albacete and Barcelona games.
