Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Lugo and Burgos, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table, take on each other at Estadio Anxo Carro in the Segunda Division round 12. Lugo have been out of form of late, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four league fixtures, and, as a result, they sit in the relegation zone. Midfielder Sebas Moyano is widely expected to return to the starting XI after he scored as a substitute in a 3-2 loss to Malaga, while Alex Perez has yet to recover from an ACL injury.
Burgos, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the Spanish second tier. Considering that Julian Calero’s troops have conceded only one goal in the new La Liga 2 campaign, and, taking everything into account, we are tempted to put our money on under 2.5 goals. First-choice goalkeeper Churripi is banned for the away side following his sending off in a 2-1 win over Mirandes.
