Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Leganes will be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Cartagena when they host Castellon at their Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Saturday evening. The capital club failed to record their sixth consecutive win in the Segunda Division, but they are still seen as favourites to beat Castellon on home soil. It has to be noted that Leganes are on a four-match winning run at home ground.
Los Albinegros, on the other hand, did well to put an end to their four-game losing run in La Liga 2 at the weekend, with the team rolling over Las Palmas 4-0. The attacking partnership of Diez and Fernandez has been in a perfect working order of late, but given Leganes’ brilliant home record, we predict that Castellon are going to return to the Valencian Community empty-handed. In the first half of the season Castellon defeated Leganes 2-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
