Elche: Average side (Recent Form: LWLWLL)
Elche are on 13th place in Segunda Division with 3 points. They host Lugo on Sunday. “I think the team is going to face the challenge and take a step forward because the players knows what we need. I have no doubts. We run more than the rivals and this is the first step, but we lack peace with the ball and pause and we need to keep adjusting in the pressure. Lugo have good players who will make us run, although we are also prepared to make them run,” said coach José Rojo 'Pacheta'. Players also shared their thoughts. “We need to create more scoring chances. We have to give more offensively. The match against Lugo is important to get sensations and because it would mean winning at home,” Andoni Lopez.
Lugo: Remain winless (Recent Form: LDDDWD)
Lugo sit on 19th position in the standings with 2 points. It’s worth noting that they are one of the 6 teams who remain without a victory. Now it’s time for an away encounter. “Elche, in their field, will want to make an intense game. They have performed well during the preseason, it’s a fairly organized side. I want the team to be brave. We continue to believe in what we are doing. We have to be successful and more solid. By statistics, we are the best in the league in terms of occasions and arrivals to the rivals area,” said coach Eloy Jiménez.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
In conclusion, I believe that this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Elche will be aiming for all 3 points in front of their fans, whereas Lugo should be eyeing the first victory so perhaps it may be an open match.
