Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sporting Gijon and Ponferradina go head to head at Estadio El Molinon in the last game of the season. Los Rojiblancos are not enjoying a season to remember, but they, at least, managed to secure the La Liga 2 survival. Given his fine display in a 2-2 draw with Eibar, Montenegro striker Uros Djurdjevic will continue leading the line for the hosts, while defender Carlos Izquierdoz is banned for the match. Both Pablo Insua and Nacho Mendez should miss out with injuries.
La Ponfe, on the other hand, failed to secure the Segunda Division survival, but their displays in the season finale have been anything but poor. Since the visitors are undefeated in the previous three league matches, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Yuri is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while both Agus Medina and Alexandru Pascanu are banned for the match.
