Carlos Bocanegra and Racing Santander face a must-win game at Ponferradina on Sunday.

Racing Santander - Ponferradina

Bocanegra and Santander were forced to settle for a disappointing draw last week at home versus Guadalajara, which saw the gap between them and Mirandés widen to four points.

This weekend's match will not be easy with La Ponfe playing for a playoff spot and a chance at promotion, which would be their first ever to the Primera División. They are unbeaten in seven matches and have made a strong push towards the playoffs since April.

Santander come into the match unbeaten in their last three matches, which has provide a glimmer of hope at the end of a disappointing season. Bocanegra and the Highlander defense will attempt to slow down Brazilian stirker Yuri, who has 19 goals this season.

La Ponfe head into this weekend's match with several players out due to injury. Midfielder's Carlos Ruiz will likely miss this weekend's contest with a bicep injury and Saúl is doubtful with a hamstring injury.

Santander will be without Gonzalo Herrero, who has missed several games since suffering a leg injury.

Mirandés can seal their safety and guarantee Santander's relegation with a win at Córdoba. All Segunda División matches are played simultaneously on Sunday so teams will have one eye on the scoreboard during the match.


Oguchi Onyewu and Málaga close out their season with a trip to La Liga champions Barcelona on Saturday. They are currently in sixth place, which would qualify them for the Europa League pending Financial Fair Play deliberations.
