The home team enters this match after an away defeat to Las Palmas that stopped their efforts to advance to the playoff places, but they remain in the fight in the last five games. They welcome Albacete, which is in the third league with one foot and can only theoretically ensure its survival. They have only one victory in seven matches and only two in 14 matches since the end of January. In addition, as many as 4 standard players are suspended, namely Fuster (35/2), Irafilov (33/2), Munoz (20/0), and Fran Garcia (22/1). If they want to stay in the race for the playoffs, then Ponferradina must take advantage and win this match.
