Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After sharing the spoils with Girona in Catalonia, Lugo will be looking to return to winning ways in La Liga 2 when they take on Castellon at Estadio Anxo Carro. Lugo produce much better showings at home than on the travels, but Sunday’s game will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. You should bear in mind that Luis Cesar Sampedro’s troops have suffered no more than two defeats at home so far this season.
Los Albinegres, on the other hand, did well to beat Las Palmas and Sabadell in the previous two home games in Segunda Division, but seeing that they suffered three defeats in the previous four away games, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. In the first half of the season Lugo defeated Castellon thanks to Iriome Gonzales’ late goal.

Highlighted Team (Castellon):
CD Castellon is a Spanish club based in the Valencian Community. Valencia flag dominates the club’s crest, but their home colours are white with black stripes. Castellon footballers wear green jerseys and green shorts when playing on the travels.
The club have been having their ups and downs ever since it was founded on July 20, 1922, with the team finishing fifth in the Spanish elite division in the 1972/73 season. It has to be noted that Castellon have not played in La Liga since the 1990/91 campaign when they suffered relegation to Segunda Division. Nowadays, Castellon compete in the Spanish second tier, with the team welcoming their rivals at Nou Castalia stadium.
Legendary Spanish coach Vicente Del Bosque played for the club in the 1970s. Castellon’s biggest success came in the 1972/73 season as they participated in the Copa del rey final. However, Athletic Bilbao proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
