  • Competition: La Liga 2
  • Date: 16th January 2023
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UTC / 21:00 CET
  • Venue: Carlos Belmonte

Albacete and Leganes will go neck to neck for a position in the top five as the sides are just two points off the promotional playoffs spot with 33 points each in La Liga 2. The visitors have won a game more than their counterparts, but with more defeats on the board and fewer goals scored in the process, Leganes have nullified their advantage over their opponents. A big talking point is Albacete's home record this season. The hosts have failed to win seven of their 11 games played at the Carlos Belmonte in 2022-23. But, with Leganes having an even poor away form of nine losses or draws from 11 outings, there is really very less to separate these two La Liga 2 teams at the moment.

Albacete vs Leganes Betting Pick #1: BTTS

Leganes are coming into this game with a seven-game unbeaten form. It clearly suggests that they have been solid on both attacking and defending fronts, throughout this period. Despite being the second-favourites in this game, due to an away setting, they should at least get a goal at least if not anything else from this game. Albacete will score for sure too, as they have against six of their last seven opponents now. BTTS should thus be ideally one of the best picks for this tie.

Pick #2: Draw

There is a huge upside for any side in this game who wins all three points, as they will confirm take a jump on the points table directly to a playoff spot. But, that also means a big loss for the losing team as they will notionally fall back three points behind all the sides from the top-six. Given this situation and Leganes' seven-game unbeaten form, we believe that the visitors will try to close this game down and manage it to a situation where points are shared. So, we believe that this game will end in a draw.

Albacete Balompie Team News

Albacete have no injuries or suspensions ahead of this tie. Coach Ruben Alves will be hoping that his two new men, Javi Martinez and Higino Marin shine to provide the home side with some or the other advantage. While Martinez remains on loan from Osasuna, Higino Marin is the team's second-most valued player after arriving from Ludogorets Razgrad on a free transfer just before the season began in August.

Leganes

Leganes Team News

Leganes boast a first-team or rather an entire squad which is valued at double the worth to that of Albacete at the moment. The visitors have brought in defensive midfielder Yvan Neyou on loan from Saint-Etienne, and right-back Jorge Miramon from Levante this season. But, all eyes will be on central midfielder Ruben Pardo, who is the second-best valued player on the pitch with both teams combined but has justified his price tag with his performances in 2022. The away side also has a fully fit and available squad to play with.

Players to watch: Juan Munoz (6 goals), Ruben Pardo (1.6 key passes per game average), Iker Undabarrena (1.6 interceptions per 90 mins)
