Lugo are having a little too close to the drop zone for their own liking. They will head into midweek action just a point clear of the bottom four.

However, they are on a great run of undefeated form at the moment which may give them appeal for punters to trust. They face a tough one here though as they meet second-placed Real Zaragoza.

Can Lugo defend an unbeaten run?

Lugo may well be at the wrong end of the table, but they started to show some fight before lockdown.

They went five matches undefeated, winning two of those, including a crucial basement battle over Oviedo.

They picked up where they left off as well, earning a great win on the weekend away at Racing. That lifted them out of the drop zone. So can they keep it all going?

That’s going to be mightily tough in this one. But there is hope for them. They have only lost one of their four games played against sides currently in the top six.

That includes a fantastic 1-1 draw against current leaders Cadiz. So they can be a stubborn lot and with confidence on their side who knows? The home form of Lugo this season is W5 D6 L5.

Our betting prediction:
Zaragoza 1 Goal Winning Margin

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 21:17 GMT, Tuesday 26th May)

Lugo have picked up a clean sheet in 38% of their home fixtures this season. Only one of their last five league games, home and away combined have made it over 2.5 goals.

Of the goals that they have conceded at home this season, 62% have gone against them in the second half of fixtures. They did collect a battling 0-0 draw when they visited Real Zaragoza earlier this season.


Can Zaragoza break the host’s resilience?

Real Zaragoza are up in second place in the Segunda Division, that is despite them losing their first match back from lockdown. That was a home fixture as well, Real losing 1-3 against Alcorcon.

The away form that Zaragoza has produced this season is W7 D6 L3 which is not too shabby at all.

They are undefeated away from home this season in their six games played against teams currently 14th or lower (W4 D2).

Three of the four wins by Real Zaragoza in that sequence were by a 1-0 scoreline.  They are only averaging 1.4 goals per away game this season, so this does look as if it may well be a low scoring affair.
