Lugo vs Alcorcon
Spanish Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 17 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Anxo Carro (Lugo).
Alcorcon will be hoping to bring the fine spell of Segunda Division form into the Copa del Rey where they are battling divisional rivals Lugo for the place in the last 32 round of the competition. Los Alfareros head into the game in the highest of spirits following a splendid run of seven straight games without a defeat in all competitions.
They won five and drew two along the way. The phenomenal thread was inspired by the super stern defensive line which successfully kept seen consecutive clean sheets in the process. The latest clean sheet came ten days ago when Cristobal’s men held the likes of Las Palmas to a goalless draw away from home. Can they keep things tight at the back on Wednesday evening against Lugo?
Lugo vs Alcorcon: Head-to-head
Lugo have the chance to make it all square at eight wins apiece with success here at Estadio Anxo Carro.
They were more successful of two teams in the most recent set of outings, having won three of last four meetings with Los Alfareros.
At home, Lugo won 5, drew 1 and lost 3 of 9 matches against Alcorcon.
Lugo vs Alcorcon: Prediction
Unlike their counterparts, Lugo come into this with just one win in last five matches across competitions. They sit at 15th place with 9 points from 9 games in Segunda Division. They drew 0-0 away at the 18th-placed Tenerife at the weekend.
Given that Los Alfareros have been very tough to break down of late, we see a tremendous value in backing the visitors to keep their net untouched on the evening. Punters who prefer safer options can go with Alcorcon not to lose at 1.45. It is a fantastic price if we know they enter the game off the back of five wins and two draws in last seven matches in all competitions.
