FC Cartagena vs Villarreal II Match Analysis & Prediction
07/12/2022 9:00 pm
Villarreal II will be facing an FC Cartagena side striving to build momentum in the upper spots of the Segunda Division table when they travel to Estadio Municpal Cartagonova on Wednesday.
The hosts are currently in fifth place on 31 points after 18 matches, three points behind league leaders Las Palmas and level on points with third-placed Burgos, the first team in the playoff places.
FC Cartagena claimed a 1-0 victory over FC Andorra in their last Segunda Division match, extending their winning run to two.
Luis Carrion’s side have recorded five wins, two draws and two losses this season in nine league matches at Estadio Municipal Cartagonova, which will provide them with confidence when Villarreal II will visit their home ground on Wednesday.
Ephese will now be looking to extend their run of four matches without defeat on home soil, which extends back to October 16 against Ibiza.
Meanwhile, Villarreal head into the contest off the back of a goalless draw with Leganes in their last league match at Ciudad Deportiva del Villarreal, leaving them in 12th place on 24 points.
Miguel Alvarez’s side will be looking to address a poor run of results on their travels this season, with two draws, six defeats and just one win in league away matches.
They will be out to end an eight-game away winless run, having not won away since August 14 against Racing Santander, but they will first have to find some improvement in the final third of the field if they are to do so against FC Cartagena on Wednesday.
In the previous meeting between these two teams, FC Cartagena came out on top 3-1 against Villarreal II in a club friendly game.
While Cartagena have won three, drawn two and lost one of their last six league matches, Villarreal II have won two, drawn two and lost two in their last six.
