Albacete threatens Butarque with a cheating anniversary

The stadium turns 23 years before a visitor unleashed that adds three foreign visits in a row. Lega begins a week of three home matches.


It's February 14, Valentine's Day. Hearts beat. In Butarque, not because of such a romantic anniversary, but because it is the anniversary of his coming-out. The blue and white enclosure opened on this day in 1998. Blow 23 candles in this course, the most anomalous in its history. For suffering from empty stands for almost a year and because never before have its walls seen theirs descend from First to Second. Now they are being watched trying to return to the elite as their sole objective since the campaign started (follow the game live on That is also unpublished.

The birthday brings a poisoned cake. Albacete is not a sweet opponent. Garitano, for example, bristles. He says that, with Mallorca, "it is the best Segunda of the moment". And he is not without reason, especially as a visitor, where he has accumulated three wins in a row and only one draw in the last five trips. At Belmonte, on the last day, he put Mallorca himself on the ropes. With one less and missing a penalty at the end. Hence the Bergara sharpening the warnings.

A Asier does not care that Lega is the most solid local in the category with Espanyol. His self-critical message has emerged powerful in recent days because he knows there is still room for improvement. He wants the ranks tight now that a fantastic week of three home games in a row starts: Albacete, Almería and Tenerife. To face it, it does not promise rotations, but there will be. For now, Tarín, Arnáiz and Rubén Pérez will be out. Perea, Bustinza and Silva return. In Albacete Diamanká will not return to Butarque. Álvaro Peña, Carlos Isaac and Javi Jiménez will not be there either, but Gorosito will be there, whom the CAS has pardoned.


Garitano effect: Leganés adds two consecutive victories after an ugly start to the year. With Garitano at the helm, the team has regained authority.

Albacete launched: 2021 has started well for Albacete. They have only suffered one defeat against Mallorca, in a game in which they deserved more.

Football simmering: Leganés is once again a diesel progression team. First he matures his rivals defensively and then squeezes when the right time comes.

Absences: Menéndez will not be able to have four players due to injury, although Gorosito has finally traveled. Dani Torres travels for the first time.

Revulsive: Garitano wants his substitutes to be key to governing the parties. The role of unit B will seem essential in its return to Leganés.


Álvaro Jiménez: Despite not scoring the penalty against Mallorca, he is a vital footballer in La Mancha. A constant danger.


Ignasi Miquel: The Catalan has mutated into a key player. He was already untouchable with Martí, but with Garitano he continues to act as a wall.
