Guests with one day less of rest and a journey of 700 km, various players not in the best conditions with knocks and tired remained at home.
Last season regular keeper Crespo, Abraham ( def.2+1) and Toribio ( midf.1) remain out, Kitoko ( midf.3+1), key def. Figueras ( 6) and topscorer Yoda ( 4g) are not called, too, and last two are new absences.
Albacete lose 3-2 in last round, but only one of its four defeats arrived at home, Gorosito ( def.3), remain only forced absence, while Azamoum ( midf.3+2) could rest.
Santander in a run of three matches without defeats, but only win remain against third from bottom Mirandes.
They could find problems probably less used to play many matches in few times, one day less of rest and travel, plus a couple of important absences and a larger turnover respect their opponent make Albacete on its own field favourite here.
