Competition: Spanish Segunda
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
In what could prove to be another cagey affair from Spain’s second-tier in midweek, Cartagena will host Malaga on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Cartagena might still be battling it out in the promotion chase, they do have the feel of a side seeking some recent stability. In their opening 13 Segunda matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, three draws and four defeats, scoring 16 and conceding 12 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 21, they open the midweek fixtures sat sixth in the standings and with their goal difference keeping in that final play-off place. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 0-0 stalemate at home against Granada, Cartagena have managed to muster just a single win from any of their previous five second-tier contests. Likewise, it should also be noted, Thursday’s hosts have seen each of their last four Segunda contests finish with under 2.5 goals.
As for the visitors, last seen putting in another toothless display, Malaga find themselves in the midst of a very public struggle. In their opening 13 Segunda matchups so far this season, they have recorded two wins, three draws and eight defeats, scoring nine and conceding 18 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of nine and opening the midweek fixtures sat rock-bottom of the table, they also find themselves sat four points adrift of climbing out of the relegation zone. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 1-0 loss at home against Eibar, Malaga have now lost three of their last four Segunda matchups. However, it should be highlighted, with Thursday’s guests seeing six of their previous seven fixtures finish with under 2.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
