Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Ponferradina play host to Lugo at their Estadio El Toralin on day 20 of the new La Liga 2 campaign. La Ponfe do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team failing to win the previous five league fixtures, but a triumph over Lugo could see them escape the relegation zone. With no fresh injury worries to report, boss David Gallego is unlikely to make changes to the team that managed to hold Levante to a goalless draw in midweek.
Meanwhile, Lugo aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Sporting Gijon, but they will have to do it without midfielder Juanpe, who limped off with injury in the last league match. Fran Justo’s troops suffered three defeats in the previous four away matches in Segunda Division, and given Ponferradina’s display in the goalless draw with los Levantinos, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side.

Highlighted Team (Lugo):
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.
Los Albivermellos wear red shirts with white stripes when playing at home, whereas white and blue are the dominant colours of the club’s away kit. CD Lugo played their first official game on September 13, 1953, with the team beating Pontevedra 3-1. Ponferradina are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in Derbi de los Ancares.
The likes of Samuel Galindo, Serge Leuko, Ivan Zarandona, Ramon Azeez, Angel Guirado, Fabri, Fernando Seoane, Jose Juan, and Diego Lopez are some of the famous footballers who played for the club in the past. Anxo Carro, the stadium with the capacity of 7,070 is the club’s home ground.
