Lugo vs Mirandes Preview
It’s a very important day at the bottom end of LaLiga SmartBank with two Galician sides involved in the scrap to beat the drop. Lugo and Depor are among the sides battling for survival with the former the better placed to do so. Victory here would guarantee Lugo’s safety but anything less would leave them relying on favours elsewhere.
CD Lugo have been one of the small-town success stories in Spanish football over the past decade or so. Promoted to the second tier for only the second time in their history back in 2012 under Quique Setien, Lugo established themselves in this league quickly and haven’t dropped out of it since. The last couple of years have been tougher though in an ultra competitive league. The Galician minnows finished one place above the relegation zone last term and face another nerve-wracking finish here.
Their opponents are Mirandes in this decisive final game. The good news for Lugo is that their visitors have nothing left to play for. Despite winning their last game against Depor, Mirandes can no longer reach the play-offs with 4 points separating them from 6th placed Fuenlabrada heading into this match.
Overall Lugo will fancy their chances of getting the victory they need to secure their second tier status for another season. They take great form into this game with 11 points from their last 5 matches seeing them climb out of the drop-zone. A 2-1 win away to play-off hopefuls Tenerife on Friday night would have been a massive boost to morale and while the long journey back from the Canary Islands wasn’t ideal, they may get through this game on adrenaline as much as anything with so much at stake in terms of their immediate future.
Lugo vs Mirandes Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Lugo
Lugo are suddenly playing with real belief and they are showing all the signs you expect to see from a team fighting for their lives. Mirandes’ players may well be thinking about their holidays now after a long season which included that remarkable cup run and we can see the hosts getting the win here that will guarantee their safety and potentially relegate their Galician rivals Depor.
