Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After suffering three consecutive defeats in La Liga2, Burgos will look to escape the danger zone when they face Ponferradina on Matchday 16. The newcomers failed to spoil Almeria’s party at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos at the weekend, but they are surely capable of matching La Ponfe in front of home fans. Burgos head coach Julian Calero could opt to make changes to the starting XI, with both Munoz and Garcia pushing for a start.
Ponferradina, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Lugo. The visitors are eager to remain in the playoffs berth, but beating Burgos on the road is easier said than done. A man to watch in the away team will be former Eibar attacker Sergi Enrich, who scored a late winner against Lugo. Anyhow, a close match is on the cards at Estadio El Plantio.

Curro Sanchez is a Spanish footballer who plays for Ponferradina in Segunda Division. Born in La Palma del Condado on January 3, 1996, Sanchez began his youth career at Siempre Alegres, but in 2007 he was spotted by Sevilla scouts.
