Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Lezama Facilities will host Sunday’s La Liga2 game between Amorebieta and Lugo, the two bottom-table sides. The newcomers aim to escape the relegation zone, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field. Defender Jon Irazabal, who limped off with injury in a 2-2 draw with Alcorcon, is unlikely to feature against Lugo, while Alvaro Pena is pushing for a start after scoring a late equalizer at the weekend.
Los Albivermellos, on the other hand, suffered three defeats in the previous four league fixtures, meaning that the lack of confidence could prove to be a big problem for the visiting side. Considering that Amorebieta want this win more than Lugo, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. It has to be noted that the two sides have never met before in the Spanish second tier.
