Cartagena vs Valencia team news

Cartagena

The Cartagena vs Valencia lineups should see both coaches make some changes to their usual league elevens. Trying to stay in the Segunda Division is the priority for the hosts who have injury concerns over Kiko Olivas and David Ferreiro.

Predicted Lineup: Lizoain (GK), Gonzalo, Fontan, Alcala, Sabater, Alarcon, Alamo, Rico, Izquierdo, De Leon, Embalo

Valencia

Valencia are expected to rotate in some positions with a mixture of regular starters and fringe players. The game will come too soon for their injured midfielder Andre Almeida although he’s nearing fitness now.

Predicted Lineup: Domenech (GK), Vazquez, Yarek, Ozkacar, Correia, Mari, Pepelu, Guerra, Gozalbez, Diego Lopez, Yaremchuk

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch – Javi Guerra

Javi Guerra has been one of the standout performers for Valencia this season. The 20 year old caught the eye with a stunning late goal to help Los Che stay up last term and has only gone from strength to strength since.

Somewhat inevitably given the club’s financial restraints, he has been linked with a move away with Manchester United among his rumoured admirers.
