Team News: Ponferradina
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the lone fitness concern for the Ponferradina boss Jon Bolo to be concerned with due to a largely intact set of players. Maximiliano Villa (Unknown Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Fuenlabrada
Due to a completely healthy squad available to choose from, Fuenlabrada boss José Sandoval has zero fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash.
Here is a game where Fuenlabrada will need to push hard to be putting a goal past this Ponferradina lineup who should get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a good tussle with a 1-0 win for Ponferradina at the end of the 90.
Hoping for a good game.
