Bitesize Prediction: Granada vs Albacete – 18/11/22

November 16, 2022

Competition: Spanish Segunda

Market: Draw

Odds: 12/5 @ 888sport

Two sides who are seeking some Segunda stability on Friday night, Granada will welcome Albacete to the Nuevo Los Carmenes.

Starting with the hosts, eventually managing to extend on their Copa del Rey adventure last weekend after a hard-fought 3-2 victory away at Yeclano, Granada must find a way to build off of those positives. However, although Aitor Karanka’s side might be dreaming of an immediate La Liga return this season, the former Middlesbrough boss has seen his side endure somewhat of a recent Segunda struggle. Last seen on second-tier duties getting hit with a toothless 1-0 loss away at Real Oviedo, Granada are without a win from any of their last three Segunda appearances. Now trying to find a route back into the play-off places, fans around the Nuevo Los Carmenes will have a growing headache over their side’s issues in the final third. It should be noted, the Nasrids have bagged just a single second-tier strike since back on October 13th.

As for the visitors, also managing to extend on their own Copa del Rey run last weekend, Albacete find themselves in a very similar position to Friday’s opponents. While Ruben Albes’ side might have only made their Segunda return over the summer, they are enduring somewhat of a recent wobble. Last seen on second-tier duties getting hit with an action-packed 3-2 loss at home against Levante, the ex-Lugo boss have recorded just a single Segunda victory since back on October 2nd. Simply with their sights set on trying to avoid the drop this season, Albacete could face a tough test on Friday night. Along with shipping five goals in their back-to-back second-division outings, it should also be noted that Albes’ men have played out a stalemate in each of their previous three showdowns away from the Estadio Carlos Belmonte.
