Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Municipal Cartagonova will host Sunday’s football game between Cartagena and Leganes. The Black and Whites experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-2 loss to Ponferradina, with the team remaining in 9th place in the standings. Cartagena missed out on a spot in the playoffs, but their pride will be at stake in the remainder of the season.
Antonio Luna continues to miss out with injury, while there are no fresh selection worries in the home team. The capital club, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Huesca. Leganes are stuck in the middle of the table, and seeing that they will be with guards down as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Midfielder Gaku Shibasaki is banned for the visitors due to the accumulation of yellow cards.
Highlighted Player (Richard Boateng):
Born in Accra, Ghana on July 10, 1992, Richard Boateng is a midfielder who plays for Alcorcon in Segunda Division. Boateng is a product of Liberty Babies football academy, with the Ghanaian starting his senior career at Liberty Professionals. In 2010 he moved to Spain, signing a deal with Granada.
During his spell with the Andalusian outfit, he mainly played for Granada B, but he spent a couple of years at loan at Cadiz B and San Roque as well. Richard Boateng made only one appearance for the Granada senior team in the league.
The Ghana international played for the likes of Aris Limassol, Extremadura, Melilla, and Oviedo as well before joining Alcorcon in 2019. His primary position is central midfielder, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and his contract with Alcorcon should expire in June 2021.
Highlighted Team (Leganes):
Leganes are a Spanish football club that have mostly been playing in lower leagues. Los Pepineros play their home games at Batarque (Madrid) and the capacity of the stadium is just 8,138. Leganes secured their promotion to the Spanish La Liga for the first time ever in 2016 and, no doubt, that is considered the club’s biggest success.
Leganes’ bitterest rivals are fellow capital club Getafe and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the South Madrid derby.
The colour of the team’s home kit is white and blue, whilst their away kits are green. The likes of Pierre Webo, Samuel Eto’o, Ivan Zarandona, Jose Chamot, Catanha, Ruben Falcon, Jordi Lardin and Pedro Lago are famous players who were part of the Batarque outfit in the past. Lady Maria Victoria Pavon is the first female president in the history of the club and she has been in charge of the club since 2009.
