Team News: Extremadura
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Extremadura boss Manuel Mosquera to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust squad. Álex López (Knee Injury) is out of contention.
Team News: Racing de Santander
Owing to a fully healthy group to choose from, Racing de Santander boss José Oltra doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of before this game.
In our view, Racing de Santander may not find it easy to find the net against this Extremadura lineup who we reckon should end up scoring and staying ahead.
We therefore fancy a narrow 1-0 winning score for Extremadura when the referee blows for full-time.
