Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Levante will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Burgos when they take on Cartagena on Sunday evening. Los Levantinos are still seen as one of the main candidates for automatic promotion, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-two finish. Experienced midfielder Vicente Iborra misses out through suspension, while Shkodran Mustafi remains on the sidelines with a hamstring problem.
The hosts, on the other hand, aim to stay in the playoffs race, but they will have a mountain to climb in Sunday’s encounter. Levante are more of a team than Cartagena, and we predict that the visitors are going to register their fifth away win of the process. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Borja, who scored a brace in a 2-2 draw with Ibiza. Both Musto and Jairo are back to contention.
