Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After sharing the spoils with Eibar, Las Palmas will look to climb to the playoffs berth when they take on Ibiza in the La Liga 2 round 37. La Union Deportiva have been producing fine displays in 2022, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the season finale as well if they are to secure a top-six finish. Jese Rodriguez, who scored the winner against los Armeros, will be the man to watch in the away team, while both Adalberto Penaranda and Enzo Loiodice remain in the recovery room.
Ibiza, on the other hand, have slim playoffs chances as they are ten points behind top six ahead of Sunday’s clash. Since the visitors want this win more than the hosts, we are tempted to put our money on Garcia Pimienta’s troops. Manuel Molina, who limped off with injury in a 2-1 loss to Burgos, is unlikely to feature against Las Palmas.
