Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Municipal Cartagonova will host Saturday’s football game between Cartagena and Zaragoza, the two teams who aim to stay in the playoffs race. Cartagena failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Mirandes, with the team dropping to 8th position in the standings. The Black and Whites aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, but they face a difficult task against Zaragoza.
Both Okazaki and Boateng are pushing for a start, while all Alex Gallar, Alberto De la Bella, and Andy Kawaya are out of contention with injuries. Los Blanquillos, on the other hand, are on a four-game winning run in the Spanish top flight. Zaragoza look unstoppable at the moment, and seeing that they are seven points behind the playoffs berth, we are tempted to put our money on the away side. Both Azon and Puche are pushing for recalls to the starting XI after the duo got their names on the scoresheet at the weekend.
