Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Fuenlabrada and Cartagena face each other at Estadio Fernando Torres in the closing match of day 7 of the new La Liga 2 campaign. Fuenla have been playing some low-scoring games at the start of the season, and there have been under 2.5 goals in each of their last five league fixtures. Pina Nunes, who limped off with injury in the goalless draw with Huesca, is unlikely to feature in Monday’s clash.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Lugo. Cartagena recorded three victories in the previous four league fixtures, but seeing that Fuenlabrada are undefeated in the previous five league fixtures, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Veteran attacker Ruben Castro is not getting older. The 40-year-old scored a brace in the 2-1 win over Lugo, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Adrian Dieguez):
Born in Madrid on February 4, 1996, Adrian Dieguez is a Spanish defender who play for Fuenlabrada in Segunda Division. Dieguez played for the likes of Getafe and Carabanchel during his youth career, while starting his senior career at Alcorcon B.

Adrian Dieguez played for Huesca on loan as well before signing a four-year contract with Fuenlabrada. During his spell with Alcorcon Dieguez played for Fuenla on loan, meaning that he returned to the club three years later. His main position is centre-back, but he is used as a left-back as well.
The towering defender has a contract with Fuenlabrada until September 15, 2020, and his preferred foot is left. Adrian Dieguez made his Fuenlabrada debut in a 3-3 draw with Las Palmas on September 20, 2020, and he scored his first goal for Fuenla in a 1-0 victory over Girona on October 4, 2020.
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.
