Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Ponferradina play host to Las Palmas at their Estadio El Toralin in what is expected to be a close Segunda Division encounter. La Ponfe aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Mirandes, with the team eyeing their first league win since February 20, 2022. Both Rodriguez and Naranjo are pushing for a start, while the likes of Kike Saverio and Manuel Arias miss out through suspension. La Union Deportiva, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Real Valladolid and Leganes.
Considering that Las Palmas have been in a much better form of late than Ponferradina, away win should be considered. As for the visiting side, midfielder Enzo Loiodice misses out with injury, but there are no fresh selection worries in the away team. In the first half of the season Las Palmas defeated Ponferradina 2-1, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors.
