Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Leganes play host to Ponferradina at their Estadio Municipal de Butarque in what is expected to be a lively contest. The capital club suffered a heart-breaking loss to Espanyol at the weekend, with los Periquitos ruining their automatic promotion hopes. Leganes’ new goal is to book a place in the playoffs, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at La Ponfe. It has to be noted that the capital club are after their 14th home win of the process.
Ponferradina, on the other hand, aim to stay in the playoffs race, but given their four-match winless run in the Spanish second tier, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on the home team. La Ponfe had no more than seven goal attempts in a goalless draw with Fuenlabrada, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
