Espanyol vs Cartagena Predictions and Betting Tips
Espanyol welcomes Cartagena to the RCDE Stadium this Friday with both sides going at each other in the second division of Spanish football. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
The reverse match represented the first-ever meeting between both sides in Spanish football with Espanyol picking up all three points via a 3-1 victory.
Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
Espanyol still leads the way in the second tier of Spanish football with 78 points from 38 matches. They head into this game unbeaten in 15 matches and as such, we expect them to be tough to handle for the Murcia-based side. In their most recent game, they were held by Zaragoza in a 0-0 draw. Can they get back to winning ways this Friday?
Cartagena, on the other hand, is just hovering above the drop zone. Although they’re a couple of places above it, only one point separated them from Logrones who occupy the final relegation spot. One solitary goal from Ruben Castro was enough for all three points in their game against fellow strugglers Castellon last weekend.
Espanyol vs Cartagena Prediction: 2-0
Espanyol does have quite an amazing record on home soil, leading the way with regards to home results. However, we expect the visitors to make it a game, given that they’re fighting to beat the drop. Still and all, we expect the home side to go home with the maximum points.
