Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Ponferradina and Villarreal B face each other at Estadio El Toralin in what is expected to be a close La Liga 2 encounter. La Ponfe aim to escape the relegation zone, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field. Forward Jose Naranjo is back from suspension, while Kelechi Nwakali is major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Meanwhile, the Yellow Submarine aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Las Palmas. Since Villarreal B are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Pacheco and Hassan are pushing for a start, whereas Adriano Garcia serves a one-game ban. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
