Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Fernando Torres will host the season opener between Fuenlabrada and Lugo. Fuenlabrada missed out on a place in the playoffs in the last season finale, and, no doubt, they are eyeing a top-six finish once again. The club chiefs made a number of changes to the squad in the summer transfer window, meaning that boss Jose Ramon Sandoval may need time to put all pieces of the puzzle together.
Lugo, on the other hand, have decided to loan several footballers, with the likes of Alende, Jose Luis Rodriguez, and Moyano joining the club. Anyhow, the two teams seem to be evenly matched ahead of the opening match of the season, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last four meetings in all competitions.
Highlighted Team (Lugo):
Based in the autonomous community of Galicia, CD Lugo is a Spanish football club that plays in Segunda Division. Despite being founded back on June 16, 1953, Lugo have never competed in the Spanish top flight. The club’s best result in Segunda division came in the 2016/17 season when they finished 9th.
Los Albivermellos wear red shirts with white stripes when playing at home, whereas white and blue are the dominant colours of the club’s away kit. CD Lugo played their first official game on September 13, 1953, with the team beating Pontevedra 3-1. Ponferradina are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in Derbi de los Ancares.
The likes of Samuel Galindo, Serge Leuko, Ivan Zarandona, Ramon Azeez, Angel Guirado, Fabri, Fernando Seoane, Jose Juan, and Diego Lopez are some of the famous footballers who played for the club in the past. Anxo Carro, the stadium with the capacity of 7,070 is the club’s home ground.
