Draw against Malaga set to dash Albacete’s automatic promotion hopes

On Tuesday night, Albacete host Malaga at the Estadio Carlos Belmonte, as the home side attempts to keep alive their hopes of automatic promotion to La Liga this season.

Albacete are currently third in the Segunda table, four points behind second-place Granada, who occupy the last automatic promotion spot. The home side needs to win and hope that Granada fails to beat Mallorca in their midweek encounter.

The home sides recent league form has hit an inconsistent spell at the wrong time, as they have won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five matches in Segunda.

Last time out Albacete recorded a 2-0 win at Sporting Gijon, which means that four of their last five matches in the Segunda have produced under 2.5 goals.

Albacete’s recent home form has actually been a mixed bag of late in the Spanish second tier, as they have won just once in their last five home games. They suffered a potentially crucial 1-0 home defeat by promotion rivals Granada in their last home outing.

Malaga are currently fourth place in the Segunda, three points behind the home side, but unable to claim automatic promotion themselves. However, the visitors still need points to ensure they seal a play-off spot in the Spanish second tier.

The visitor's recent form has kept them in the top-six, as they are unbeaten in four matches, having recorded three straight wins, including winning 3-1 against Real Zaragoza last time out in the second tier.

Malaga have been hard to beat on their travels of late in the Segunda, losing just once in their last 12 league matches on their travels. Their recent away games in the Spanish second tier have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in ten of their last 11 matches.

Forebet predicts that Albacete’s poor recent home form will continue, with this game finishing in a low-scoring draw.
