Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Ponferradina will be looking to kick off the new La Liga 2 campaign in style when they host Castellon at their Estadio El Toralin. La Ponfe have been struggling in the Spanish top flight after the coronavirus break, with the team being more than fortunate not to suffer relegation to Segunda B. Bolo’s men aim to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Castellon.
Real Madrid product Manuel Hernando, who joined the club in the summer, is likely to make his Ponferradina debut against Castellon. Los Albinegros, on the other hand, secured promotion to La Liga 2 thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over Cornella in the Segunda B playoffs final. The newcomers are eager to impress on their return to the Spanish second tier, but they will have a big fish to fry in their opener.
