Deportivo got completely outplayed last time out when the team visited Cadiz and suffered 3:0 defeat. It was a game to forget as their defensive lineup didn’t work at all, while the side actually created much more than Cadiz but simply had a terrible night. It was first defeat after three and a half months, being now fourth at the table with just three less than direct promotion placed Albacete.
Lugo, on the other side, comes from a goalless game at home against Gijon last time out. Neither of the teams looked actually impressive in attack and willing to risk towards the end, so the final result seems to be more than a fair outcome. They now have no defeat in last three, being just a point above the relegation zone.
Striker Carlos Fernandez is back for the hosts, while offensive Pedro Sanchez (8/1) remains only injured player for them. Right back Leuko (7/0) is injured for the guests. Central defenders Vieira (15/0) and Josete (14/0) are both suspended.
Deportivo is anyway a strong favorite in this one and should take care of the game easily. However, with the guests missing their two key central defenders, this one should be quite an one-sided affair.
