Cartagena vs Malaga – Our best betting predictions

If you need help to find the right bet for Cartagena vs Malaga, take a look at our favourite betting picks for this match.

Cartagena to Win

While Malaga has struggled so far in Segunda and they are in the last place in the standings, Cartagena has done very well and they are sitting close to the playoff zone.

That alone is enough of a reason for us to support Cartagena, but we also believe that they are the better team. In addition to this, Cartagena will host the game, so we expect them to win this match.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Two of the last four h2h meetings between Cartagena and Malaga have gone over 2.5 total goals, which isn’t saying much. However, the two teams averaged 2.75 goals per game in those four duels, so we expect this game to go over 2.5 total goals.

Furthermore, Cartagena averaged 2.15 goals per game, while Malaga averaged 2.08 goals per game in the league this season, which are actually solid averages for La Liga 2.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We saw both teams score in the last four head-to-head duels between Cartagena and Malaga, so we can see that being happening when they meet on Thursday as well.

That being said, both teams scored in 46% of all Cartagena matches in Segunda this season, while the same thing happened in 38% of all Malaga games in the league so far.

Cartagena vs Malaga preview: Will Malaga stay in last place after this game?


With twenty one point from thirteen rounds, Cartagena is currently sitting in the seventh spot in Segunda standings, which is very close to the playoff zone. Meanwhile, Cartagena has two wins, two draws, and two losses in the last six matches in the leauge, so they’ve been a bit inconsistent recently. David Ferreiro, who is injured, and Damian Musto, who is suspended, are out of the next game.


With just nine points from thirteen matches in the league this season, Malaga is sitting in the last place at the moment and they will clearly have a tough task ahead to survive in Segunda. After narrowly escaping relegation last season, it seems that Malaga is on the path to the same stress and they hope for the same outcome. Pablo Chavarria, Moussa Diarra, Haitam Abaida, and Victor Olmo are out with injuries right now.
