Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Ferrol play host to Cartagena at their Estadio Municipal da Malata in the Segunda Division round 10. The newcomers aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Amorebieta and their fine home record (3-1-0) is surely fuelling fans with optimism ahead of the visit of Cartagena. Luca Ferrone misses out with a muscle injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last five league matches. As Ferrol have turned their Estadio da Malata into a real fortress, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. There are no fresh injury concerns in the visiting team, but both Alamo and Hevel are pushing for recalls to the starting XI.
Highlighted Team (Cartagena):
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.
