Indicating their bias toward fruitful encounters, the back of the net has been hit 20 times in the last six matches in which FC Cartagena have played, yielding a mean average of 3.33 goals per fixture.

Team News: Tenerife
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just one fitness concern for the Tenerife manager Luis Ramis to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group of players. Pablo Larrea (Sideband tear in the knee) misses out.
We are thinking that Tenerife may well use a 4-4-2 system in the match featuring Juan Soriano, Shaq Moore, Sergio Gonzalez, José León, Carlos Pomares, Víctor Mollejo, Aitor Sanz, Alex Corredera, E. Zorrilla Jiménez, Enric Gallego and Mario González.
Team News: FC Cartagena
Due to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, the FC Cartagena boss Luis Carrión has no fitness concerns at all coming into this match.
We reckon that Efesé could decide to make use of a 4-3-3 system, choosing Marc Martínez, Julián Delmás, Pablo Vázquez, Toni Datkovic, Alberto De la Bella, Richard Boateng, Yann Bodiger, Pablo De Blasis, Álex Gallar, Nacho Gil and Alfredo Ortuño.
We’re thinking that Tenerife should really get the goals that they need when they come up against FC Cartagena, who may well find it hard scoring.
We’re therefore expecting to see a 2-0 win for Tenerife at the conclusion of the game.
