Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Malaga, Fuenlabrada will be looking to climb to the top half of the table when they face Cartagena on Sunday. Fuenla have been having their ups and downs of late, but they are still as favourites to beat Cartagena at home ground. France international Randy Nteka, who has found his goalscoring touch of late, will be the man to watch in the home team.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, picked up vital three points from the Logrones clash, with the team escaping the relegation zone. Cartagena, on though, need to keep on impressing in the season finale if they are to avoid relegation. The visitors are undefeated in the previous six league fixtures, and, taking everything into account, we predict that they are going to hold Fuenlabrada to a draw at Estadio Fernando Torres.
