Tenerife vs Lugo
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Sunday, 14 October 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez (Tenerife).
Tenerife will be hoping to bounce back from a tough 4-1 defeat away at Mallorca when they host Lugo on Sunday at noon at Estadio Heliodoro Rodriguez Lopez. The team led by Jose Luis Oltra was completely outplayed by sixth-placed Mallorca eight days ago. They revealed way too many defensive holes on the occasion and it will be very interesting to see how the outfit will react here against Albivermellos.
The defeat pushed Tenerife down into the relegation zone. A potential failure against Lugo could ring for the alarm bells and put Olstra’s head coach position in jeopardize. Tenerife won just one of eight games so far in the season.
Tenerife vs Lugo: Head-to-head
The hosts have a positive head to head record against Lugo at least.
They won 6, drew 3 and lost 4 of 13 meetings with Albivermellos.
Chicharreros won 3, drew 2 and lost only 1 of 6 home outings with Lugo.
Tenerife are on a fine run of five wins in last six games with Albivermellos.
Tenerife vs Lugo: Prediction
The visitors did not shine either so far in the season, but they were somewhat better snatching two wins in the process. One of these surprising wins came in mid-September when Javi Lopez’s troops stunned Real Zaragoza away at Estadio de la Rosaleda 0-2.
Nonetheless, Albivermellos failed to capitalize on such success, clinching just a single point from last two games in the division. They drew 1-1 at home to Mallorca before falling to 16th-placed Elche 2-1 on the road last weekend.
Neither of two teams has a genuine predator in the final third, but their defensive lines have been quite vulnerable of late which is why we’ll skip any clean sheet bets.
A banker bet does not exist in thus match-up. The draw does look to be the best of the options value wise and we’ll go for it at the odds of 3.30.
