Almeria vs Alcorcon Preview

Almeria vs Alcorcon predictions

The promotion battle in the Segunda Division is getting very interesting now with four teams in the running for a top two finish and a guaranteed place in the top flight next term. Almeria are one of those sides and having spent big, they have more pressure on them than the others as they prepare to take on away day specialists Alcorcon here.

That’s a tag that could also be applied to Almeria, at least since the restart. They’ve taken 6 points from 3 games since returning to action and all of them came on the road. They were in danger of slipping out of the automatic promotion battle when they travelled to 2nd placed Real Zaragoza last time out for a crunch top of the table clash but a 2-0 win was a huge boost to Almeria’s promotion hopes. They were though defeated in their only game at the Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos following the break, losing 1-0 to Las Palmas last week.

There are all kinds of weird stats that could be referenced heading into this match. The fact that Alcorcon are still unbeaten away from home after 17 away games is truly remarkable. Their average of 1.71 points per away game is actually better than Almeria’s home record yet despite their away day heroics, Alcorcon are only in mid-table and need a really strong end to the season if they are going to challenge for a play-off place.

This will be Alcorcon’s third away game against top three opposition since the restart. They won at Zaragoza in their first game back and then drew at Cadiz so they will certainly be full of belief heading into this game.

Almeria vs Alcorcon Predictions

Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

Alcorcon’s extraordinary away record (and pretty hopeless home record) almost defies logic and even before covid-19, Alcorcon were doing their best to prove that home advantage doesn’t have to be a factor. With Almeria blowing hot and cold to some extent, the visitors look capable of extending their unbeaten road record here.
