Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mallorca and Ponferradina go head to head at Visit Mallorca Estadi on day 11 of the new La Liga 2 campaign. Mallorca are on a quest to secure a quick return to Primera Division, and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Ponferradina on Sunday evening. Los Bermellones have turned their stadium into a real fortress, and even though the game will be played behind closed doors, the hosts are seen as hot favourites to win the match.
La Ponfe, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in Segunda Division, and they must be low on spirits ahead of the trip to the Balearic Islands. Since Mallorca have already recorded three wins on home soil, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Mallorca failed to turn their dominance into goals in a goalless draw with Zaragoza, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.

Aleksandar Trajkovski is a Macedonian international who played for Cementarnica 55 during his youth career. He made 11 league appearances for the club at senior level as well and in 2010 he moved to Croatian team Inter Zapresic.
The attacking midfielder failed to prove his worth in the 2010/2011 season and, as a result, he was sold to Zulte Waregem in the summer of 2011.
