Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Numancia and Ponferradina, the two relegation-threatened teams, face each other at Nuevo Estadio Los Pajaritos in what is expected to be a close encounter. Los Numantinos have been having their ups and downs ever since they restarted the season, and they need to get back on course as soon as possible if they are to avoid relegation to Segunda B. In their last home game Numancia defeated Extremadura, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Ponferradina.
Sola and Mateu, who picked up knocks against Extremadura, are rated doubtful for Sunday’s clash. La Ponfe, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in the Spanish second tier. The visitors have been struggling in front of goal of late, and seeing that Numancia are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on Luis Carrion’s troops.
