After a losing effort in their last game against Málaga in La Liga 2 competition, CD Lugo and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.

The overall average goals scored per game during that spell is a meagre 1.83, with the average goals for Luguiño standing at 0.33. That sort of trend might not be carried forward here, however.
Ahead of this clash, CD Lugo have not won away from home in their last 12 league games. What a terrible run of away results.
