Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Lugo and Burgos take on each other at Estadio Anxo Carro in what is expected to be a close Segunda Division encounter. Lugo are undefeated in the previous nine league fixtures, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash. Manuel Barreiro, who scored a late equalizer in a 1-1 draw with Girona, is pushing for a start, while both David Mayoral and Pedro Lopez should miss out with injuries.
Burgos, on the other hand, produced their best performance of the season at the weekend, with the team rolling over Leganes 4-0. The newcomers, though, are not regarded as good travelers, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on draw. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Juan Manuel Garcia, who scored a hat-trick in the last league fixture.
