Prediction Galán – Carballés Baena: Win Galán
There are two ways to foreshadow the outcome of this match. By experience and record, Carballés is a clear favourite. If we only focus on the present, Galán starts this match with a slight advantage over the Tenerife.
The Colombian reaches the end of the season with confidence, something that can be seen in the results he obtained in the first rounds. It was far superior to its rivals, leaving no doubts as to its performance. If you maintain that intensity, you have a good chance of moving forward.
Although the Spanish have a broad curriculum in this type of appointments and with a greater experience in ATP World Tour tournaments, he is not seen at the level that he could claim. In the Second Round, he was very close to being eliminated against Olivo, showing that everything is costing him too much. The main bookmakers agree with our prediction, although the truth is that the match will be defined by details.
