Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Girona will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Almeria when they take on Lugo in the La Liga 2 round 29. The Catalans are eager to keep their promotion hopes alive, and reputable bookies see them as favourites to win Saturday’s clash. Despite failing to impress in the defeat to Almeria, veteran striker Stuani should continue to lead the line for the hosts.
Lugo, on the other hand, continue with their old habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. Los Albivermellos are on a three-match losing run on the road; therefore, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Girona’s party at Estadio Municipal de Montilivi. In the first half of the season Lugo crushed Girona 3-0 at Estadio Anxo Carro, meaning that the hosts are eager to get their revenge on the visiting team.

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.
