Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Ponferradina will be aiming to extend their winning run to three games when they face Racing Santander on Matchday 35. La Ponfe proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Mirandes and Elche, but they need to keep on raising their form if they are to book their place in the playoffs. The good news for the hosts is that midfielder Saul Crespo returns to contention after serving his ban against Elche.
Racing Santander, on the other hand, suffered yet another disappointing defeat at the weekend. Los Racinguistas are stuck at the bottom of the standings, and given the importance of the match for the promotion-chasing side, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Racing Santander midfielder Nando is likely to miss the match with injury after picking up a knock in the 2-1 loss to Tenerife.
