Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Buoyed by a 3-1 win over Albacete, Cartagena will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they host Logrones at their Estadio Municipal Cartagonova. Cartagena are eyeing their fourth home win of the season, but they can’t afford any complacency in Saturday’s football match against the in-form newcomers. Former Real Betis attacker Ruben Castro is not getting any older.
The Spanish veteran has been scoring goals for fun in the 2020/21 Segunda Division campaign, and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Logrones, on the other hand, did well record back-to-back wins over Oviedo and Alcorcon, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Cartagena, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home. When the two teams met in the Copa del Rey two years ago Logrones eliminated Cartagena on penalties, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.

The club is well known for their white shirts with red stripes, while blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Union Deportiva Logrones play their home games at Las Gaunas, the venue with the capacity of 16,000 spectators.
UD Logrones take on Sporting Gijon on their debut in the Spanish second tier. It has to be noted that the club chiefs made a three-year collaboration with La Liga side Eibar, which saw their footballers going on loan to Logrones to gain some experience.
