Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Cartagena and Zaragoza go head to head at Estadio Municipal Cartagonova in the La Liga 2 round 20. Cartagena aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Alcorcon, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. You should bear in mind that the Black and Whites are eager to put an end to their four-game losing run on home soil.
Los Blanquillos, on the other hand, are having a season to forget, with the team collecting only 16 points to date from possible 57. Zaragoza did well to beat Lugo 1-0 in their last home fixture, but given their anything but good away record, we are tempted to put our money on Cartagena this time out. It has to be noted that los Blanquillos are the worst travellers in Segunda Division, with the team already suffering eight defeats on the road this term.
