Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After suffering a heavy 4-0 loss at Real Oviedo, Castellon will be looking to put an end to their dreadful losing run when they take on Cartagena at their Estadio Municipal de Castalia. Los Albinegros are obviously playing with the lack of confidence, and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that home win should be considered. The Black and Whites, on the other hand, suffered a 1-0 loss to Logrones on home soil at the weekend, with the team dropping to 11th place in the standings.
Cartagena aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, but beating Castellon on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the horizon at Estadio Municipal de Castalia, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. In their last encounter in Segunda Division the two sides played out a 2-2 draw.

Founded on July 25, 1995, Cartagena is a Spanish football club that plays in La Liga 2. Los Boquerones dropped to Segunda B in the 2011/12 season, but following an eight-year absence, they returned to the Spanish second tier.
Cartagena play home matches at Cartagonova, the venue which can hold 15,105 spectators. The stadium was built by CMMP Arquitectos in 1987, and opened the following year. Real Murcia are regarded as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Derbi of the Region of Murcia. Toche is leading Cartagena’s all-time top goalscoring chart with 39 goals.
Los Boquerones are well known for their black shirts with white stripes. Red, on the other hand, is the dominant colour of the club’s away kit. It has to be noted that Cartagena have never competed in la liga. The club’s highest ranking in the Segunda Division came in the 2009/10 season when they finished the campaign in 5th position in the standings.
