Gimnastic vs Lugo
Spain – LaLiga2
Date: Sunday, 9th June 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Nou Estadi de Tarragona (Tarragona).
Gimnastic has been relegated from the Segunda and will have to experience life in the lower division for at least the next full season. As they tie up boots for one last time in this league, it’s hard to say if the players might be motivated to give their hearts on the pitch. The fact that the game is at their home might steer them to deliver in this fixture though.
Lugo fans will consider them the luckiest in the whole of the competition. After an intense struggle for survival, their team emerged as the final safe one in the Segunda. Win or lose this tie, the result will not matter much to the players. Still, the jubilant squad could feed on the despair of their counterparts and grind out a win.

Gimnastic vs Lugo Prediction
It’ll be a game without pressure for both these teams after a very long time. Lugo will be looking to close out their season with a win, after they avoided the boot, while for the hosts, this is the final chance to put on a good show in this division for their fans.
As such, we can expect attacking football from both sides. Since the result doesn’t matter, count on these two to take risks. In addition, Lugo netted goals against this opponent in five of their last six clashes, and both teams got on the scorecard in every game, bar once.
Wait for goals at either end of the pitch this Sunday. As far as the result is concerned, Lugo showed character in raising their level when it mattered the most. They are unbeaten in their last five games and was so in 12 of their last 15 attempts. Even on the road, they avoided a loss in six of their last seven tries.
Rely on Lugo to avoid a loss against Gimnastic, who could deliver just four wins from their last 15 fixtures.
