Las Palmas vs Alcorcon by Isaiah
Las Palmas received their first defeat to the season last week, away to strong Elche with the score of 3-1. Las Palmas not satisfied a lot with their performance, although they had opportunities to score, it was clear that control of the game had the hosts, to a very open game with a lot of action.
However, in Gran Canaria thy are not worried by the last two unfortunate results and their coach Sergio Lobera stated that their roster have changed slightly this season, and better results soon will come, knowing that a win against Alcorcon will put them back on track.
The fact is that this season Las Palmas has the roster to be into top six, more than any other time in recent years, and if they manage to get the maximum points at home games, they may participate in promotion battle. Anyway, for today's game they have some problems in defense, as main defenders Corrales and Pignol are both out, the same for midfielder Pedro Vega. Good news for them that Javi Castellano will make his debut.

Alcorcon had a very good game at home against Hercules last week, and took the first victory of the season with the score of 1-0. Although they scored with a tragic mistake of Hercules goalkeeper, they were clearly better through all 90 minutes, and also had three shots to the bars.
This was an important victory for Alcorcon that will give them enough confidence for today's game, as this season is not expected easy for them, since the competition is too high and their roster is not something special at the moment. Today they will try to score as their coach stated with a clear attacking minded game. Alcorcon has problems to their defense too, as both main defenders Juanito and Carlos Exposito are out of the game.
Las Palmas is correctly given as slight favorites to win this one, as they are the better team comparing the rosters. If Las Palmas will play according to their capabilities, it is expected that they will get all three points. But the fact the both teams facing important absents on defense, plus that both of them are scoring easy at the moment and preferring open games, i believe that the value is on goals.
