Rafa Mújica (Torn Muscle Fibre) and Sergi Cardona (Corona virus) will be missing for UD Las Palmas manager Pepe Mel.
Team News: UD Almería
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there is just the sole fitness worry for the UD Almería gaffer Joan Rubi to be concerned about. Daniel Carriço (Muscle Injury) won’t be in action. Umar Sadiq is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our feeling is that UD Almería and UD Las Palmas could both end up scoring in a what should be a good tussle with little between the two teams.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. That is why we are leaning toward a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 score at full-time.
