Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Cartagena will be looking to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Tenerife when they host Mirandes at their Estadio Municipal Cartagonova on Matchday 22. Cartagena are having a season to forget, with the team sitting in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Mirandes. The Black and Whites suffered three defeats in the previous four league fixtures, meaning that home win should not be considered. Los Rojillos, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the Spanish second tier.
Considering that both sides are desperate to return to winning ways, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. In the first half of the season Mirandes recorded a thrilling 4-1 win over Cartagena, and yet another lively contest is on the cards. This will be the first meeting between the two clubs at Estadio Municipal Cartagonova, speaking of La Liga 2 fixtures.
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 (Mirandes):
Mirandes is a Spanish club founded on May 3, 1927. Los Rojillos compete in Segunda division, with the team still eyeing their first ever promotion to La Liga. Mirandes’ home colours are red and black, while their away kit is mainly light blue.
Mirandes did remarkably well to make it to the Copa del Rey semis in the 2019/20 season, with the team outplaying the likes of Celta, Villarreal, and Sevilla in the process. Real Sociedad, though, proved to be a big catch for Mirandes in the Spanish Cup semis. Los Rojillos welcome their rivals at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. The stadium was opened back in 1950, with the venue being able to host 5,759 spectators.
Mirandes played their first game on June 4, 1927, with the team defeating Arabarra thanks to Fidel Angulo’s goal. Zaragoza and Alaves are considered one of the club’s main rivals. Los Rojillos have won Castilla and Leon Cup on two occasions (2011, 2012).
