Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Oviedo will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Las Palmas when they take on Lugo in the La Liga 2 round 36. Los Azules are safe for now as they are eight points clear of the relegation zone, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season. Both Rodrigo Tarin and Jimmy Suarez continue to miss out with injuries, while Leonardo Sequeira will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Lugo, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only 27 points on their account, and, as a result, they will find it hard to secure the Segunda Division survival. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of Saturday’s encounter. Since the rock-bottom side have been struggling on the travels this season, they are unlikely to spoil Real Oviedo’s party at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere.
