Team News: Racing de Santander
The Racing de Santander manager Guillermo Fernández Romo will be grateful to have no fitness worries at all ahead of this match with a fully injury-free squad available to choose from.
It looks as if Los Racinguistas will possibly go for a 4-2-3-1 formation for this game, utilising Miquel Parera, Álvaro Mantilla, Pol Moreno, Ruben Gonzalez, Eneko Satrustegui, Íñigo Sainz-Maza, Juergen Elitim, Jordi Mboula, Jorge Pombo, Iñigo Vicente and Sekou Gassama.
Team News: UD Las Palmas
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the UD Las Palmas boss García Pimienta to be concerned about. Kirian Rodríguez (Lymphoma) won’t be in action.
From our viewpoint, UD Las Palmas will likely utilise a 4-1-2-3 lineup, starting Álvaro Vallés Rosa, Alex Suárez, Sidnei, Éric Curbelo, Sergi Cardona, Omenuke Mfulu, Jonathan Viera, Enzo Loiodice, Álvaro Lemos, Marc Cardona and Oscar Clemente.
We’re inclined to think that Racing de Santander could well find it tough to get anything against this UD Las Palmas team who we reckon will score at least once to put them ahead.
We’re therefore expecting a very even contest with a 0-1 victory for UD Las Palmas at the conclusion of the game.
