Cartagena take on the visitors Racing Santander in the round 11 match of Spanish LaLiga2. The match will be played on Saturday, October 14th at Estadio Municipal Cartagonova (Cartagena).
Cartagena are currently performing poorly. The Efesé have previously played at this level from 2009 to 2012. They made their return in 2020. Initially, they managed to secure only the sixteenth position, but then, for two consecutive seasons, they finished tenth. It seemed like the zebras had adapted to this level and established themselves among the mid-table teams. However, the start of the new season sees the club performing quite poorly. They have recorded only one victory, against Villarreal B, away from home. Furthermore, they've lost the majority of their matches, which has placed them at the bottom of the table. Even against the newcomers, Racing Ferrol, they could only secure a draw, 1-1.

Racing Santander remains a mid-table team in the second division of the country. The green and whites have never been particularly impressive, although they have experience in European competitions. Moreover, they were vice-champions once, albeit a long time ago, in the 1930/1931 season. Furthermore, between 1993 and 2012, the verdiblancos spent only one season outside La Liga. However, they experienced a sharp decline, and for most of the following years, 7 out of 10, they were in the third division. They made their return once again in 2022. They started by securing a respectable twelfth place. Currently, they are holding their position in the middle of the table. After a couple of defeats, they managed to win an important match against Sporting Gijon in a high-scoring encounter, with a final score of 3-2, earning crucial points.
Last season, Racing won both matches, scoring three goals in each. Cartagena are considered the favorite, but only due to the home-field advantage. The visitors are stronger, so it can be expected that they won't lose.
Prediction for the match: Racing Santander not to lose (X2).
