CE Sabadell FC manager Antonio Hidalgo has a full complement, with no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game owing to a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: UD Las Palmas
Las Palmas manager Pepe Mel has to currently contend with reduced team options. Raúl Fernández (Fractured Finger) and Ale Díez (Metatarsal Fracture) are not able to play.
We envisage that UD Las Palmas and CE Sabadell FC should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
Let’s see how it plays out, but a draw is looking likely to us. We’re therefore predicting a hard-fought 1-1 draw when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
