Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Lugo and Malaga square off against each other in a relegation six-pointer at Estadio Anxo Carro. Lugo restarted the season with a 2-1 win at Racing Santander, but they failed to impress in back-to-back losses to the likes of Las Palmas and Zaragoza. Los Albivermellos aim to escape the relegation zone, but the game against Malaga will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
Seeing that there will be no spectators at Estadio Anxo Carro due to the fierce of coronavirus spread, home win should not be considered. Los Boquerones, on the other hand, shared the spoils with Extremadura in their last league fixture. Malaga aim to put an end to their five-game winless run, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. January signing Sergio Buenacasa, who has overcome his injury, is pushing for a start.
