Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
High-flying Cartagena will be looking to extend their winning run to three games when they take on Sporting Gijon at Estadio Municipal Cartagonova on Tuesday evening. The Black and Whites have been climbing the standings week by week, but they need to keep on winning if they are to book their place in the playoffs. Anyhow, we are positive that the hosts will find the net against Sporting Gijon as they scored eight goals in total in the previous two league fixtures.
Ruben Castro is not getting any older, and the in-form experienced attacker is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, aim to retain top position in the standings. Sporting Gijon defeated Alcorcon thanks to Uros Djurdjevic’s late goal, and they are surely capable of finding the net in the midweek clash.
Highlighted Player (Álex Gallar):
Alex Gallar is a Spanish footballer, who plays for Huesca in La Liga. Alex Gallar’s main position is left winger, but he is used as both right winger and left midfielder as well. Born in Terrasa (Spain) on March 19, 1992, Alex Gallar began his youth career at his hometown club Terrasa, but in 2010 he moved to Mallorca youth academy.
Speaking of his senior career, Alex Gallar played for Terrassa, Mallorca B, Murcia B, Rubi, Cornella, Hercules and Cultural Leonesa before joining Huesca in 2017. Gallar quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Huesca and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 24 appearances for the El Alcoraz outfit in the 2017/2018 Segunda Division campaign.
The Spanish winger helped Huesca secure promotion to La Liga, with the player making his debut in the Spanish elite division in a 2-1 away win over Eibar. Alex Gallar’s contract with Huesca should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Gijon):
Sporting Gijon are a Spanish football club that competes in La Liga. Sporting Gijon’s home ground is El Molinon, the stadium that was built in 1908. El Molinon is the oldest football field in Spain and the capacity of the stadium is 30,000. Sporting Gijon’s home kit is red and white and the club’s main rivals are Real Oviedo.
The two teams take on each other in the Asturian derby. Sporting Gijon did remarkably well to finish the 1978/1979 La Liga campaign in second position in the standings and that is considered the club’s biggest success. Los Rojiblancos were runners-up in Spanish Copa Del Rey in 1981 and 1982, but they have yet to win the Spanish Cup.
The club was founded in 1905 and the club’s original name was Sporting Gijones. Sporting Gijon participated in the UEFA Cup on six occasions, but they did not record a good result in the European competition.
