Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Castellon will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Cartagena when they take on Ponferradina in the La Liga 2 round 39. Los Albinegres are fighting tooth and nail to survive in the Spanish second tier, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field. Castellon have already registered nine wins at home ground this season, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Ponferradina.
La Ponfe, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Las Palmas and Albacete. Since the visitors have slim chances of booking their place in playoffs, we are tempted to put our money on the relegation-threatened hosts. Castellon are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Spanish second tier, and we predict that Juan Carlos Garrido’s charges are going to prove their worth on the field.
