Alcorcon plummeted through the standings in the last couple of weeks, but they had plenty of room to fall and they were never in danger of missing the playoffs. Now they will face Girona in a double legged round and they can’t afford to drop points in front of their fans.
Match: Alcorcon vs Girona
Odds: Pinnacle Sports 1.96
Alcorcon is the least experienced team among the four competing for a place in Primera Division, but they’ve built a fairly competitive squad in a relatively short period of time. They are mediocre traveling team but they won 14 games at home and lost just four times, which makes them a tough nut to crack. One explanation for why Alcorcon failed to win more games in the final rounds of Segunda Division is that they chose to rest key players, including prolific striker Oriol.
The 26-year-old attacker has scored 18 goals during the regular season, more than all the other strikers combined and he will definitely feature upfront tonight. Urko Vela or Kike might join him as both of them were used in the last round and added their names on the scoreboard. Girona is the more experienced team and they are also a formidable opponent at home, which explains why the visitors would gladly settle for a draw. Acuna is their key striker and the only one to start the match, but with 17 goals under his belt he is not to be underestimated.
This playoffs game can be a potential gold mine for punters, because they have two chances of winning at even odds. Tonight the right wager is Alcorcon to win at 1.96 with Pinnacle Sports, why later this week punters shouldn’t hesitate to back Girona at home.
