For the second time this week we're getting involved with an Alcorcon game, and this time Kev's opposing them.

"Albacete won at Alcorcon as recently as April, they have won two of their last three on the road, and the hosts are struggling."

Back Albacete Draw No Bet at [3.3]

Visitors to pick up another road win

Alcorcon v Albacete
Friday 4 October, 20:00

The Foals fell at an early hurdle in Turkey last night, and although Borussia Mönchengladbach recovered to draw 1-1 at Istanbul Basaksehir, that wasn't good enough for us.

For the second time this week, we'll check out some action involving Alcorcon in the Spanish second tier. They netted us a BTTS winner on Tuesday as they grabbed a last-gasp equaliser at Rayo Vallecano, and now I'm looking to oppose them against Albacete.

Alcorcon have won just one of their last six games in the league, and if you stretch back into last season, they have lost five of their last six competitive games at the Estadio Santo Domingo. On that basis alone, it's hard to see why they are trading at evens for the home win here.

That sense of surprise is heightened by the fact that visitors Albacete (brilliantly nicknamed the Clockwork Cheese)aren't in bad form. They are above Alcorcon in the standings, they won at Alcorcon as recently as April, and they have taken a respectable 13 points from the last eight games.

Albacete have won two of their last three away games, and I'll back them Draw No Bet here at [3.3].
