Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estad de la Nova Creu Alta will host Saturday’s football game between Sabadell and Castellon. The hosts did well to eliminate Ibiza Islas Pituisas in their Copa del Rey opener, with Antonio Hidalgo resting several first-team regulars. The Catalans aim to extend their winning run in La Liga 2 to three games, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash.
Castellon, on the other hand, aim to build on a routine Spanish Cup win over San Fernando. Los Albinegros rolled over Albacete in their last league fixture, and they are surely capable of matching Sabadell behind closed doors. Considering that both sides have been sharp in front of goal of late, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. The two sides meet in the Segunda Division for the first time since 1993.
