Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
There will be fireworks when Rayo Vallecano and Lugo square off against each other at Campo de Futbol de Vallecas on the last day of the season. Los Vallecanos are determined to book their place in the La Liag 2 playoffs, and seeing that Sporting Gijon are breathing down their neck, this has to go down as yet another must-win game for the hosts. Winger Tiago Bebe is likely to miss the game with injury, but centre forward Qasmi, who has found his goalscoring touch in the season finale, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Lugo, on the other hand, are fighting hard to avoid relegation to Segunda B. The visitors did well to beat Cartagena on Monday, but given their poor away record, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the capital club. Rayo defenders should have Gerard Valentin at bay as the 27-year-old scored a brace in the victory over Cartagena.
Highlighted Player (Stole Dimitrievski):
Born in Kumanovo, North Macedonia, Stole Dimitrievski is a 190-cm-tall goalkeeper who plays for Segunda Division side Rayo Vallecano. Dimitrievski started his senior career at Rabotnicki, but he made no more than 18 appearances for the Macedonian outfit in the national championship. In the summer of 2012 he decided to move to Spain, signing a deal with Granada.
The towering shot-stopper made 90 appearances for Granada B, while playing no more than one game for the senior team. Following his spells with Gimnastic, Stole Dimitrievski moved to Rayo Vallecano. The Macedonian goalkeeper made his Rayo debut in La Liga in a 2-2 draw with Villarreal on November 11, 2018, while keeping his first clean sheet in a 1-0 win over Eibar later that month.
His preferred foot is right, and his contract with Rayo Vallecano should expire on June 30, 2024. Speaking of his international career, Dimitrievski made his full debut with the North Macedonia national team on November 12, 2015 in a 4-1 win over Montenegro.
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.

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.
