Two teams in good time meet at Belmonte

Mallorca wants to continue at the top of the table against an Albacete that has come out of the descent after the 'effect' Menéndez (21:00, Mov. LaLiga).


Carlos Belmonte hosts this Friday a duel between two teams that are going through a good dynamic although they fight for different objectives (follow the game live on Albacete want to extend their good run of results that has allowed them to abandon the relegation against Mallorca that wants to continue with a firm step towards the First Division.

The La Mancha team has added 13 of the last 15 points with Alejandro Menéndez on the bench and wants to get a positive result to get away from the well of the table. The forward Alfredo Ortuño after overcoming the coronavirus has entered a call in which Cedric is released, the last signing of the La Mancha team in the January market that could debut against the Balearic team. The only casualty that Menéndez has is full-back Carlos Isaac, who will be away from the pitch for at least a month due to a break. Everything indicates that the Asturian coach will bet on the same block that has given him such good results in recent games, seeking to achieve the fourth consecutive victory.

For its part, Mallorca need to win in Albacete to face with a certain margin the two commitments that will come later, nothing more and nothing less than Espanyol and Almería, the two teams with whom it rubs shoulders at the top of the table. After the stumbles at the turn of the year, the best Mallorca from the first round has returned with its triumphs against Rayo Vallecano and Girona. Now, Albacete, who in the first round tied in Palma, has a pristine streak with 13 of 15 points and becomes a problem for the Majorcan players who intend to maintain the level that has given them in qualifying leadership. Luis García can already count on his three new faces: Álvaro Giménez, Víctor Mollejo and Koke, although the latter does not seem to be making his debut yet. The course of the match will tell whether Mollejo and Álvaro can have their first minutes as vermilion, in the case of Álvaro in his second stage on the island.
