Victory, that friend

The need for the three points prevails for both teams. The locals add seven games without winning, by five for the visitors. They need a win to set the course straight.


The need to achieve the three points prevails for FC Cartagena and Real Oviedo. More for the locals, who are in relegation positions and with a disastrous dynamic: a win in 14 games, ten defeats and three 'tables'. The last six games at Cartagonova confirm the bad moment, with five lost games and a draw. Meanwhile, Ziganda's team comes to this event after five days without adding a victory. Another puncture could lead to those of the Tartiere complicating their lives with respect to the low zone. On the contrary, if they are victorious (follow the game live on .

But the poor qualifying situation of FC Cartagena contrasts with the feelings for the second round with Carrión's team. The eight signings in January have changed the face of the team and the permanence is much more feasible than in December. The match held in El Molinón has also helped to see it that way, where after eight commitments a clean sheet was left. Navas and Datkovic have given a plus to the line of four defenders, to which Antoñito could join today to cover the loss of David Simón. The other option is Delmás, who did not count for Borja Jiménez or Aguilar, as well as for Carrión in the first two commitments.The line to follow

Carrión, in an interview with As this week, assured that the first objective is to maintain the defensive reliability demonstrated in Gijón. And then take a step forward on the offensive side. To achieve this, he will bet on the same eleven from a week ago, with the exception of the sanctioned Simón. Azeez and Cristian López, the latest signings, have barely been able to exercise with the group, although they could make their debut as the clash progresses. Thus, Carrasquilla will repeat in the double pivot, a position in which he has given his best version.

Oviedo, at its worst

Oviedo does not arrive in Cartagena in a good dynamic precisely, since it has not won for five days (three draws and two defeats). The problems at home for the Blues have another reading: they are more dangerous at home. And those of Ziganda, who is still on the sidelines of the team with Covid-19, want to recover their best version and return to the right path.

To achieve this, the Oviedo team will recover its most common system of the first round, the 4-2-3-1 that benefits the midfielders, the line in which more talent accumulates in the blue squad. Borja Valle, the only signing on the winter market, and Borja Sánchez, already in full condition, compete for the position that Rodri will foreseeably leave in the team. The other novelty could be the return of Edgar to the center of the field, as Tejera's partner, to recover the duo that has worked best in the core so far.Registrations and registrations
