Castilla vs Ponferradina by Sunshine
In one of the most interesting matches in previous round, Real Madrid Castilla got a great victory on the road over Deportivo Guadalajara 4:3. Many goalscoring opportunities for both sides, very interesting match and seven goals were needed for them to earn their third victory in the season, third victory that saw them being in the middle of the table with nine points.
Just like in most of the previous matches, they played open minded and attacking football, showing their rich talent. However, despite their great win, they still show unpredictability as they have three victories and three losses, being unable to play constantly good despite their great talent. This inconsistent performances are one of the weakest points of the team that actually surely has quality to be at the top of the league. No absentees for coach Jose Alberto Toril.
Ponferradina, on the other side, is coming from a 2:2 draw against Almeria, although they were leading twice, the hosts were unable to keep the lead and had to be satisfied with a 2:2 draw in quite a balanced match. This draw saw them extending a run without a win in the league to four matches and they currently stand twentieth at the table with all the alarms set on, in order to avoid relegation battle further on.
The coach said in the interview that he knew this season will be very tough for them as the league is one of the best in recent years and that their team will have problems struggling in most of the matches. However, it seems that the main problem remain their matches away from home, being unable to get a single point till now with three easy losses. It won't be any easier for them this time as defender Helder Rosario, the substitute goalkeeper Santamaria and midfielder Mateo Miguez are injured, while midfielder Juande is doubtful.
All the circumstances are ideal for Real Madrid Castilla to earn second consecutive victory. They looked very well against Guadalajara, while their opponents seem to be losing their faith regarding their Segunda status. Hosts have no bigger problems making the tonight's squad and same should be regarding the final outcome of the game where goals are also expected.
