Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Cartagena and Sabadell go head to head at Estadio Municipal Cartagonova on day 18 of the new La Liga 2 campaign. Cartagena did well to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Espanyol, with the team beating Malaga on the road. The Black and Whites aim to climb to the top half of the table, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Sabadell, on the other hand, outplayed Tenerife on the road on Matchday 16, but they failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Oviedo.
Considering that suspended boss Antonio Hidalgo will watch Sunday’s game from the stands, we believe that punters can find value in betting on Cartagena. In their last encounter at Estadio Municipal Cartagonova Cartagena recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sabadell, with Raimondi scoring the only goal of the match.
