Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Municipal de Anduva will host Saturday’s football match between Mirandes and Cartagena, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the remainder of the season. Mirandes are desperate to secure the La Liga 2 survival, while Cartagena are eyeing a place in the playoffs. The hosts are sitting just above the relegation zone, meaning that they are desperate to pick up all three points from the match. Midfielder Cesar Gelabert and forward Simon Moreno should be the only absentees in the home team.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, are three points behind the playoffs berth. Considering that Cartagena impressed in a 4-1 crushing of league leaders Eibar, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. In the first half of the season Cartagena recorded a routine 3-0 win over Mirandes. The likes of Alex Gallar, Alberto De la Bella, and Andy Kawaya remain on the sidelines with injuries for the visiting side.
Highlighted Player (Richard Boateng):
Born in Accra, Ghana on July 10, 1992, Richard Boateng is a midfielder who plays for Alcorcon in Segunda Division. Boateng is a product of Liberty Babies football academy, with the Ghanaian starting his senior career at Liberty Professionals. In 2010 he moved to Spain, signing a deal with Granada.
During his spell with the Andalusian outfit, he mainly played for Granada B, but he spent a couple of years at loan at Cadiz B and San Roque as well. Richard Boateng made only one appearance for the Granada senior team in the league.
The Ghana international played for the likes of Aris Limassol, Extremadura, Melilla, and Oviedo as well before joining Alcorcon in 2019. His primary position is central midfielder, but he is used as an attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and his contract with Alcorcon should expire in June 2021.
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.
