Almería and Alcorcón seek to reaffirm their good moment

Those of Gomes want to take advantage of the puncture of Espanyol to consolidate in the direct promotion, while those of Anquela want to get out of the descent.


The days go by and there is less and less time for reaction, so the match that closes matchday 29 of Segunda seems key for promotion and relegation (follow the game live on Almería need to score points to return to direct promotion, having the possibility of even further ahead of Espanyol after their puncture last Saturday. The people of Almeria will face an Alcorcón that they have to fish from the Mediterranean to avoid the descent, being the Vega de Acá fiefdom a place that historically is good for potters: they have scored points in six of their eight visits, winning the Almería only in 2017 of the last six. To make matters worse, Anquela's men arrive after beating Mirandés, winning three of their last four matches, without conceding in those three victories.

It is precisely on the defensive aspect that Almería has improved in the last few days after Gomes has placed a lot of emphasis on it. The local back will have two modifications. Maras is low when the Serbian sees his fifth yellow in Montilivi. Ivanildo will be his substitute, acting two left-handed centrals. The other novelty will be that of Balliu, after having already served his sanction, Buñuel being the victim. With the calendar less compressed until the end of the month, Gomes has parked his extreme rotations, so he will give continuity to the eleven that he won in Girona.

Of course, only Corpas is guaranteed to be present from the midfielder line, which forms a lethal partnership with Sadiq, the best in the category: between the two of them they add 24 goals and eight assists. Their simple presences in the green are synonymous with danger. Lazo is postulating to continue on the left-handed side, Villalba having enough ballots to enter through Robertone, without ruling out the Aketxe contest, even Carvalho. All of them are of a similar profile, guaranteeing the local team an associative football, wanting control of the ball and attracting a lot from the inside to play on the outside with Balliu and Akieme.

For its part, the visit to Almería comes at one of the best moments of the difficult Alcorcón season. The potters come from winning 4-0 at Mirandés and taking their head off the decline. Those of Anquela, who seek to consolidate their reaction in Almería, were finally able to score the multiple occasions that they generate as happened against Mirandés. That footballers like Xisco Jiménez or Arribas start to score is one of the best news for Alcorcón, a solid, compact, choral and competitive team that will need all these qualities at the highest level to beat Almería.
