Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Espanyol will be looking to retain top position in the standings when they host Lugo at their RCDE Stadium. Los Periquitos have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive clean sheet in La Liga 2, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s football match. Considering that China international Wu Lei has overcome his injury, the Catalans are seen as favourites to win the game.
Lugo, on the other hand, have been playing above expectations in the 2020/21 season, with the team sitting in the playoffs berth ahead of the trip to Barcelona. However, Espanyol are likely to pose a much bigger threat for Lugo than their previous rivals; therefore, home win should be considered. Hugo Rama returns from suspension for the visitors, but he is unlikely to help the visitors grab something from the RCDE Stadium clash.
