Cartagena vs Valencia News, Stats and Predictions
Cartagena beat Racing Rioja 2-0 in the first round of the domestic cup before going on to beat third-tier side CD Castellon 2-1 in the second round. Thirty-year-old striker Alfredo Ortuno had a hand in all four goals scored by the hosts, with three goals and one assist.
Cartagena have failed to make it past the second round of the cup competition in the past three seasons and will be delighted to have scaled that hurdle this season.
Valencia picked up a comfortable 3-0 win over CD Utrillas in their first game and perhaps should have scored a few more. However, they had to dig in to get a result in their second game as they were held to a 1-1 normal time draw by Arenteiro before picking up the win with two extra-time goals.
