Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After failing to spoil Elche’s party at Estadio Manuel Martinez Valero, Villarreal B will look to return to winning ways when they host Cartagena to their Estadio de la Ceramica. The Yellow Submarine are a real force to be reckoned with at home and it is no wonder the odds for home triumph have been dropping. Rodri is pushing for a start, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Cartagena.
Meanwhile, La Cebra made a slow start to the season and given their three-game losing run in Segunda Division, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s contest. Talented forward Ivan Ayllon is pushing for a rare start after scoring a consolation goal in a 3-2 loss to Andorra at the weekend. All Luis Munoz, Ivan Calero, and Pedro Alcala are out of contention through injuries, speaking of the away team.
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.
