Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Cartagena play host to Alcorcon at their Estadio Municipal Cartagonova in what is expected to be a close match. Cartagena are on a five-game winless run in La Liga 2, with the team remaining in the danger zone. The Black-and-Whites are desperate to grab something from the relegation six-pointer, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Alcorcon. The visitors head into the match following back-to-back draws with Sporting Gijon and Real Oviedo.
Alcorcon are determined to escape the relegation zone as well, and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. When the two teams met at Estadio Municipal de Santo Domingo earlier this term Alcorcon defeated Cartagena 2-1, which is yet another reason why BTTS betting option should be considered. Cartagena centre-back Raul Navas remains on the sidelines through suspension.
