Extremadura vs Albacete Preview

Extremadura vs Albacete predictions

This is a really big game at the bottom end of the Segunda Division. Both Extremadura and Albacete find themselves in the relegation zone and in serious need of three points from this game to lift their hopes of staying up.

Both sides have seriously regressed since last season. Extremadura claimed a very creditable 13th place finish in their first campaign back at this level since reforming in 2007. They’ve found it tough going second time around but they made a decent start to this final stage of the season, by getting a good draw at play-off hopefuls Elche at the weekend.

Albacete meanwhile narrowly missed out on promotion to LaLiga this time last year but 12 months on they find themselves battling just to stay in the Segunda. It’s just 1 win in 16 league games for them now and they desperately need to find a victory from somewhere as they bid to turn this slump towards the third tier around. They were beaten 1-0 at home by Almeria at the weekend and are in the relegation zone, just a place above Extremadura as a result.

The one positive for Albacete is that their away record isn’t too bad and they’ve actually claimed more points and more victories on their travels this season than they’ve managed at home. You do though, have to go all the way back to November and a surprise victory at Zaragoza for their last road success.

Extremadura vs Albacete Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

Albacete have played 2 and lost 2 since the restart, including those 45 minutes at Rayo. They were both tough fixtures though and this should be a game that offers them considerably more chance of coming away with a result. A draw looks the most likely outcome with both sides a bit short on confidence and quality in the final third.
