Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After holding Rayo Vallecano to a goalless draw at the weekend, Cartagena will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Espanyol at their Estadio Municipal Cartagonova. The Black and Whites do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team collecting only one point in total from the previous five league fixtures. Cartagena aim to escape the danger zone in the La Liga 2 standings, but they will have a big fish to fry in the midweek clash against the promotion-chasing Catalan outfit.
Espanyol quickly bounced back from back-to-back defeats to Girona and Leganes, with the team beating Zaragoza at home ground, and they are surely capable of defeating Cartagena behind closed doors. You should bear in mind that the two teams have never met before in the Spanish second tier.
