Team News: CD Lugo
CD Lugo manager Luis Sampedro has zero fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this game owing to a completely injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Málaga
In an otherwise full-strength group, there’s only the one fitness issue for the Málaga manager Sergio Pellicer to contend with. Iván Calero (Ruptured knee ligament) won’t be playing here. Iván Calero will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We are of the inclination to think that Málaga and CD Lugo may well end up cancelling each other out here.
It could well end in a draw. We’re therefore expecting a very even match with a 1-1 score draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
