Espanyol Preview – Can Espanyol seal promotion?

With just four matches remaining of the regular season in La Liga 2, Friday’s hosts, Espanyol, are sitting pretty at the summit of the Spanish second tier with a six-point cushion over 2nd placed Malaga and a 12-point advantage over 3rd placed Almeria prior to tonight’s clash against Cartagena.

Espanyol know that all three points here would see them virtually seal automatic promotion back up to La Liga and having put together a 15-match unbeaten run heading into this fixture, Espanyol look in good shape to further advance their promotion hopes.

The hosts have also won their last five matches at home on the trot with wins gained over Logrones, Fuenlabrada, Leganes, Las Palmas and Malaga, scoring 17 goals and conceding just 1 in reply.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Cartagena Preview – Can Cartagena move safe?

A crucial 1-0 home win over fellow strugglers, Castellon, on the weekend in La Liga 2 resulted in Cartagena not only moving further away from the relegation zone but also giving them confidence ahead of this tough looking trip to face Espanyol.

Cartagena have produced an improved set of results of late in the Spanish second tier, losing just one of their last eight matches overall but also picking up important wins against lcorcon and Logrones as they look to steer clear of trouble.

However, results away from home have been more modest as the visitors have won just one of their last 10 matches on their travels, losing six of these, so they may well have their work cut out against Espanyol.
