Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Municipal de Anduva will host Wednesday’s Segunda Division game between Mirandes and Lugo. Los Rojillos aim to put an end to their three-match winless run, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Lugo. Forward Roger Brugue is pushing for a start after scoring a late equalizer in a 1-1 draw with Zaragoza. The visitors, on the other hand, head into the midweek fixture following a 1-1 draw with Sporting Gijon.
There have been under 2.5 goals in each of Lugo’s last seven league fixtures, and given their defensive style of play, we are unlikely to see goals galore at Estadio Municipal de Anduva. Lugo defender Gerard Valentin, who suffered an injury in the draw with Gijon, is likely to miss Wednesday’s clash. You should bear in mind that the two teams played out a goalless draw in their last meeting at the venue.

Based in the autonomous community of Galicia, CD Lugo is a Spanish football club that plays in Segunda Division. Despite being founded back on June 16, 1953, Lugo have never competed in the Spanish top flight. The club’s best result in Segunda division came in the 2016/17 season when they finished 9th.

Ponferradina are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in Derbi de los Ancares.
