Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Lugo and Fuenlabrada face each other at Estadio Anxo Carro in the Segunda Division round 40. Lugo are seven points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they should be happy with one point from Saturday’s clash. Los Albivermellos are tough to beat at home, and they are surely capable of matching the relegation strugglers at “Anxo Carro”. All Joselu, Alex Perez, and David Mayoral are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Fuenla, on the other hand, failed to secure the La Liga 2 survival due to their dreadful losing run. Since the visitors are low on spirits ahead of Saturday’s match, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. Mohamed Bouldini serves a one-game ban, while Velasco Jano remains on the sidelines with a meniscus problem for the visiting side.

Highlighted Team (Fuenlabrada):
Nicknamed los Kirikos, Fuenlabrada is a Spanish football club that competes in Segunda Division. Fuenlabrada was founded in 1975, with the team securing promotion to La Liga 2 for the first time in the 2019/20 season.
Fuenla finished the campaign in the 8th place in the standings, and, as a result, they missed out on a place in the Segunda division playoffs. Los Kirikos wear blue shirts and blue shorts when playing on home soil, while their away kit is mainly red. Estadio Fernando Torres is the club’s home ground. The venue was named under legendary Spanish attacker Fernando Torres, who scored 38 goals in 110 appearances for La Furia Roja on the international stage.
“El Nino”, who was born in Fuenlabrada, played for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea, Milan, and Sagan Tosu during his professional career. Dioni is leading Fuenlabrada all-time top scorers list as he netted 47 goals in 82 appearances for the club.
