Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Huesca will be aiming to build on a 2-0 win over Eibar when they take on Cartagena at Estadio El Alcoraz. Huesca could not have wished for a better start to the season, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to return to the Spanish top flight. Pacey winger Joaquin Munoz, who returned to the club earlier this summer, will be one of the men to watch in the home team.
Cartagena, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Almeria. The Black and Whites experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their opener, and seeing that Huesca are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on los Azulgranas. In their last meeting at the venue, nine years ago Huesca defeated Cartagena 1-0.
Highlighted Player (Pedro Mosquera):
Born in A Coruna, Galicia on April 21, 1988 Pedro Mosquera is a Spanish midfielder who plays for Deportivo La Coruna. After finishing his youth career at Real Madrid, he started playing for RM Castilla at senior level and he made no less than 98 appearances for the club from 2006 to 2010.
In the summer of 2010 Pedro Mosquera joined Getafe, but he played only 39 games for the capital club in the league. In 2012 he returned to Real Madrid B, scoring five goals in 58 appearances for the club in his second spell with the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium outfit.
The 184-cm-tall midfielder then moved to Elche and after playing 25 games in La Liga for los Franjiverdes, he returned to La Coruna at the end of the 2014/2015 season, signing a deal with his boyhood club Deportivo. Pedro Mosquera has a contract with the Galician club which expires on June 30, 2021. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as a defensive midfielder as well.
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.
