Lugo vs Tenerife
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Tuesday, 4 June 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Anxo Carro (Lugo).
Lugo and Tenerife finished right next to each other in the middle of the standings in the previous term of Segunda Division.
They’ve both been somewhat worse this time around, but are still separated by only a single point coming into final two fixtures of the season.
Mathematically, one of these two sides can still be relegated as they are four and three points away from Rayo Majadahonda in the red zone.
Both teams could escape into safe waters with a win here, regardless of what Majadahonda do in their respective matches in last two rounds, but there is a huge chance both outfits will keep their second tier statuses.
Lugo vs Tenerife: Head-to-head
Tenerife lead the head to head tie by two wins coming into 15th meeting with Albivermellos.
Teams shared spoils in a goalless draws when they took on each other in mid-October last year.
Tete won five of last seven encounters with Lugo.
Both teams scored in four of last six head to head affairs.
Lugo vs Tenerife: Prediction
The appointment of Eloy Jimenez was just the right move for Lugo. The Spanish manager took charge last month and made an immediate impact.
The hosts tightened things up defensively of late as the rock-solid defense was the main catalyst for a run of two wins and two draws in last four rounds. Albivermellos kept three successive clean sheets going into this tie with Tenerife.
Tete generally struggled for goals on travels lately. They found the back of the net just once in last three away losses to Extremadura, Granada and Elche. Moving forward, Tenerife only won 2 of 20 away games in the league this season.
Bookies offer 2.40 odds for the draw which might just do the job for both teams in given circumstances.
We are, however, tempted to go for the home win at 2.60 knowing the visitors lost four of last six league games.
