View all of the CD Lugo v Real Zaragoza predictions, poll and stats below - plus the latest match odds.
CD Lugo will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 2-0 La Liga 2 loss in their previous game against Ponferradina.
In that game, CD Lugo had 48% possession and 5 attempts on goal with 1 on target. Ponferradina got 16 attempts at goal with 6 on target. Paris Adot (10') and Yuri de Souza (78') scored for Ponferradina.
CD Lugo have not been in good attacking form in more recent games. Their goals record stands at just 2 versus opponents over the course of their previous six matches. In those meetings, Luguiño have also seen the number of goals against them total 15.
A look at their previous results shows us that CD Lugo:
- haven't won against Real Zaragoza in their previous 4 matches in the league.
- are without a home win in the past 7 league matches. Things will have to change soon.
In their last game, Real Zaragoza drew 0-0 in the La Liga 2 tie with Sporting Gijón.
In that match, Real Zaragoza had 53% possession and 10 shots at goal with 2 on target. Sporting de Gijón got 8 shots at goal with 3 of them on target.
It has become apparent that Real Zaragoza have been starved of goals over their last six games, contributing the poor return of only 4. In those fixtures, Blanquillos have also seen the overall goal aggregate against them equal 5. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, however.
Heading into this fixture, Real Zaragoza remain unbeaten by CD Lugo when they have played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.
