Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Deportivo La Coruna will be looking to build on a hard-fought win over Elche when they host Ponferradina at their Estadio Municipal de Riazor. Los Branquiazuis regained a much-needed confidence in midweek, but they need to keep on raising their form if they are to avoid relegation to Segunda B. Japanese midfielder Gaku Shibasaki is banned, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Peru Nolaskoain remains in the recovery room. Ponferradina, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with out-of-sorts Racing Santander. La Ponfe produced a below par performance in the midweek fixture, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Deportivo La Coruna. The likes of Cidoncha, Rios Reina, Jonathan, and Caiado are all likely to miss the Deportivo game with injury.
