Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Tenerife play host to Lugo at their Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez in the La Liga2 round 20. Los Insulares played out a 1-1 draw with Cartagena at the weekend, but they recorded a win in each of their previous four home fixtures. Veteran attacker Enric should keep his place in the starting XI after finding the net in the last league fixture. Lugo, on the other hand, played out a boring goalless draw with Ibiza on Matchday 19.
The visitors have drawn each of their last three league fixtures, but even though they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s clash, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Tenerife, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home. Orest Lebedenko, who limped off with injury in the draw with Ibiza, faces race against clock to be fit for the Tenerife game.

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.
