Tenerife didn’t show much in the last match against Alcorcon, as they looked a bit uninterested on the pitch. They were outplayed by the hosts in almost every segment of the game in both parts of the match.
However, they managed to save their goal on several occasions, a great credit that can be given to the goalkeeper who shined that day. With no concrete ideas on how to threaten the opponent’s goal, Tenerife should be really satisfied with an away draw and a point in this encounter.
They are currently at the ninth place in the LaLiga2, with still a theoretical chance to reach that playoff phase, but a lot of dices need to be put together for that to happen.
They will miss midfielder Lasso (19/4), while defender Sipcic (23/2) comes back from the suspension.
Lugo barely managed to take one point in the last round against Girona, when they came out with a home 2:2 draw. They opened the match in the best possible way and took the first lead in the 18th minute, but they conceded an equalizer from the penalty, thirteen minutes later.
In the continuation, the guest took the 1:2 lead in the 72nd minute, leaving the hosts in an unpleasant situation of chasing the result. They finally managed to level-up, as they scored just before the full-time whistle, in added time via Herrera, and took a valuable point in this one.
Lugo is at the relegation leading nineteenth place, with a good chance to step into the safe zone, which is just one point ahead of them.
The guests have midfielder Borja Dominguez (12/1) as injured for the moment. Defender Valentin (25/1) is probably out, as well as suspended midfielder Seoane (31/0).
Both teams will go all-in in this one
As both of them have something to fight for in this match, I expect them to go all offensive from the very start, as neither of them will be satisfied with just a point here. Both teams are capable of threatening and actually have no other way to reach the target in the season but to remain offensive, goals do look like valuable options this time.
