Team News: CD Lugo
It’s our opinion that Luguiño will probably use a 4-1-2-3 formation for this one, beginning the first half with Óscar Whalley, Ricard Sánchez, Alberto Rodríguez, Diego Alende, Orest Lebedenko, Xavier Torres, Pablo Clavería, Juanpe, Jaume Cuéllar, J. Ángel Carrillo and Christopher Ramos.
Team News: Fuenlabrada
Fuenlabrada manager José Sandoval has to choose a team with limited availability. Jano Velasco (Rupture of Outer Meniscus), Iban Salvador (Hamstring Injury) and Juanma (Knee Injury) will miss out on this game. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Tachi, Mohamed Bouldini and Iban Salvador.
From our viewpoint, Fuenla seem most likely to play in a 4-4-2 system by sending out Diego Altube, Pol Valentin Sancho, Rubén Pulido, Adrián Diéguez, Mikel Iribas, Pedro Léon, Mikel Agu, Cristobal Marquez, Javier Ontiveros, Aboubakary Kanté and David Amigo.
Our thinking is that Fuenlabrada will likely create enough chances to break down this CD Lugo side, however that is unlikely to be as many as they’ll concede.
We think that it’s going to be a narrow 2-1 winning margin for CD Lugo at the end of the 90 minutes. There looks to be little in this one.
