Belmonte measures two teams fighting for salvation

Albacete has four games without winning and Logroñés has only added seven of the last 42 possible points. They are rivals for permanence so today's points are vital.

Carlos Belmonte hosts this Saturday (follow the game live on As.com) a duel between two teams that seek to stop their negative trend. Albacete and Logroñés have spent too many days without knowing victory and both need to win to get oxygen. Albacete chain four games without winning, with a balance of three defeats and a draw, and are looking for victory to be able to aspire to permanence. For the clash against the Rioja team, Alejandro Menéndez has several casualties for different reasons. Álvaro Jiménez tested positive for coronavirus, Arroyo must serve a penalty game after his expulsion in Sabadell and Diamanka remains injured. The good side is that Gorosito and Tana have entered the squad after being between cottons all week, and Boyomo will play once his suspension is over. Carlos Isaac is emerging as a starter, while Zozulia and Ortuño compete for the position up front.

For its part, Logroñés visits Carlos Belmonte in free fall by adding only seven points out of the last 42 possible. Translated: a win in the 14 most recent duels. Only the mattress of the six consecutive victories in November allows him to remain out of the relegation zone, with three points of difference over Sabadell and five with respect to Albacete, the bottom. Both teams risk their lives. The red and white need to return to their best version in both areas: solidity at the back and effectiveness at the top. After losing to Alcorcón, they reacted with their best feelings in a long time against Lugo and Mallorca, but with a lone point as booty. Sergio Rodríguez recovers at least his captain, Iñaki, key to the group, although important players such as Nano Mesa, Paulino or Medina will be a doubt until the end. Clemente, Gorka, Errasti, Zelu and Pacheco were discarded due to physical problems.
