Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Anxo Carro will host Saturday’s Segunda Division game between Lugo and Real Sociedad B. Thanks to a VAR decision Lugo saved one point from their opener against Real Oviedo, and they are now on a quest to record their first win of the season. Both Carillo and Joselu, who scored as substitutes in the draw with los Azules, are pushing for a start.
Real Sociedad B, on the other hand, did well to beat Leganes on their La Liga 2 debut. The newcomers aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but beating Lugo on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at Estadio Anxo Carro, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Teenager Jon Karrikaburu, who scored the winner against Leganes, is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors.
