Lugo vs Mallorca Preview
Real Mallorca face a long trip to Galicia this weekend. The Balearic Island team look to have a bit of momentum now after some more encouraging recent results and it’ll be interesting to see how they go here following a busy end to the transfer window.
Lugo are one of the teams that will be expected to be involved in the relegation scrap. They do have a habit of defying the odds as one of the smallest teams in Spain’s second tier but it will be tough for them this year you sense in what is a heavyweight division. Lugo have lost 3 of their 4 matches so far this term. However they will take positives from the other match which was a win against another of the recently relegated sides in the form of Leganes.
It has been a summer of change in Palma de Mallorca with coach Vicente Moreno departing and a number of players following him out the exit door. The latest was Ante Budimir, top scorer for the club in the top flight last season. He joined Osasuna on loan on deadline day but Marc Cardona moved in the opposite direction while Amath Ndiaye also arrived from Getafe to bolster their options.
Those are two players who should thrive at this level, and they join a team that has won their last two matches to kick start their season. Home wins over Sabadell and Tenerife mean that it’s 7 points from 3 games heading into this match and only one goal conceded all season so far, suggests that defensively they are on the right track.
Head to Head
- Last 6 Competitive Meetings: 2 Lugo Wins, 1 Mallorca Win, 3 Draws.
- Mallorca were 3-0 winners the last time these sides met – at Son Moix in 2019.
- However they’ve lost on 4 of their last 5 Segunda Division visits to Lugo, drawing the other in their promotion winning 2018/19 season.
Lugo vs Mallorca Predictions
Score Prediction: Lugo 0-1 Mallorca
Mallorca leaked goals throughout last season but Luis Garcia has come in and really does look to have found a more solid base from which to build, admittedly at a lower level. They will feel they can handle whatever Lugo throw at them here and the visitors may have just enough in the final third to find the opening that wins this game.
