Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Leganes will be aiming to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Las Palmas when they host Lugo at their Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Matchday 23. Leganes continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, with the team eyeing their ninth home win of the process. Even though both Javi Hernandez and Bustinza are banned for Monday’s clash, we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing capital club.
Lugo, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Tenerife. Los Albivermellos have been impressive on home soil this season, but given their poor away record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Leganes. In the first half of the season Lugo defeated Leganes at Estadio Anxo Carro 2-1, meaning that los Pepineros are hungry for revenge.

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.
