Fuenlabrada vs Albacete Preview


Fuenlabrada will be welcoming Albacete this weekend at the Estadio Fernando Torres in the 3rd round of fixtures. Fuenla are full of goals at the minute whilst Albacete are still looking for their first goal of the season.

Jose Ramon Sandoval’s side have had a great start to the new campaign. They nearly snatched a massive win away at Las Palmas last weekend with another goal from Randy Nketa and a Fernando Torres esque strike from Aboubakary Kante. They were 2-0 down but a great second half comeback saw them leading 3-2 only for victory to be taken away from them in the 90th minute, with Claudio Mendes levelling it for Las Palmas.

Fuenlabrada’s attacking style has already caught the eye and is a bit of a contrast to last term when they often struggled for goals. It is still early days but if they can keep this run of form going it could see them in play off contention again this year and potentially bettering their 8th place finish last term.

Albacete sit at the bottom of the table after losing 2 out of 2 so far and they are having a hard time finding the net. They did have a few chances against Espanyol and there was hope they could build on that and get a win in the following match vs Ponferradina.

They did have chances with Ortuno hitting the bar but apart from that nothing major and all off target. This will be a slight concern to manager Lucas Alcaraz who has further problems here with centre back Ivan Kecojević suspended following a red card for an elbow on Kaxe in the 89th minute last weekend.

Fuenlabrada vs Albacete Predictions


Score Prediction: 3-1 Fuenlabrada

Albacete will want to put this bad start behind them and they are a team who enjoy playing on the road. They will have chances and could get a goal but Fuenlabrada are on fire at the moment and scoring lots of goals and creating a lot of chances. They should be too strong for Albacete at this moment in time and should outscore them.
