Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following a boring goalless draw with Zaragoza, Ponferradina will be aiming to return to winning ways when they take on Racing Santander on Matchday 26. La Ponfe failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, with the team dropping to the relegation zone. The hosts do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of Sunday’s relegation six-pointer, and we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on David Gallego’s troops.
There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Racing. The visitors, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Tenerife. Since the visitors struggle up front as well, we are going to put our money on under 2.5 goals. Jose Lopez should have a full squad to choose from.
