Alcorcon vs Lugo
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: 16th October 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Santo Domingo.
Lugo quickly returned on the winning ways after dropping away points against Granada at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes last weekend.
Albivermellos picked up three important points on Thursday evening when thy dispatched Cordoba with two late goals to remain the top half of the standings.
Their appetites are getting bigger and bigger and Francisco announced another three pointer on Monday when Lugo are set to close the Matchday No 10 with the visit to Estadio Santo Domingo and the clash against Alcorcon.
The hosts established themselves as one of main contenders for the drop in this term of Segunda with a series of four consecutive losses.
Julio Velazquez was desperate to see his men allowing seven goals in last two games with Cordoba and Real Valladolid without netting a single on the other end along the way.
Los Alfareros have actually scored only four goals since the start of the season and improving this poor record will be a very difficult task against one of the best defensive sides in the league.
Lugo kept their net untouched in two of their last three outings and they are only two points away from Osasuna at the top of the standings after nine rounds of the competition.
Whilst the defense is the better part of the team, the talisman responsible for goals is midfielder Iriome Gonzalez who already has three to his name even though he failed to score a single in the last term.
Alcorcon vs Lugo: Head to head
The head to head stats, however, speak in Alcorcon’s favour since the hosts took eight wins in 15 matches against Lugo.
This includes a demolishing 3-0 victory for Los Alfareros in the previous meeting between the two sides at Estadio Santo Domingo in June this year.
Alcorcon vs Lugo: Prediction
Lugo have been very tough to break down so far in the season and we can hardly see Alcorcon’s struggling attack causing the damage on Monday.
The value is clearly with the visitors who are 7/4 to get away with points and keep their strong form going.
