Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Ponferradina and Eibar take on each other at Estadio El Toralin in what is expected to be a close La Liga 2 encounter. La Ponfe have drawn each of their last three fixtures, but they are on the right track to make it to the playoffs. Ponferradina are eyeing their 8th home win of the process, but they will have a big fish to fry in Sunday’s showdown. Pujol is widely expected to replace Reina, who limped off with injury in a goalless draw with Malaga, while there are no other selection worries in the home team.
Los Armeros, on the other hand, moved one step closer to securing automatic promotion thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Amorebieta. The league leaders, though, have been having their ups and downs on the road this season, which is probably the main why we are going to put our money on draw. Both Arbilla and Munoz are back from suspensions for the away side.
