Cordoba - Lugo
The biggest problem for Cordoba will be absences of captain Javi Lara and there is no standard defender Fernandez like Jesus Valentin while Sasa Jovanovic is doubtful. But despite these absences the players and the coach have something to hope for because they come with two consecutive victories where there is a great atmosphere which was confirmed by coach José Ramón Sandoval :
"Four weeks ago we were practically in the well, with very negative feelings, right now everyone trusts more if it is possible to chain another victory and face the last pull of the season in another way." and relied on the top scorer Sergi Guardiola with words :
"Pure rower, is a constant nightmare for rival defense and has great scoring ability as shown by the 15 goals that appear in his locker."
They have 70% of home matches over 2.5 goals with 3.1 goals per home match and in view of the fact that the stadium is sold out I would not be surprised with the victory of Cordoba at all.
Defender Bernardo Cruz followed up on the bad results and added:
"Without work, without effort and without attitude we will not go anywhere, that must be our line to follow" because without it, it s hard to win the desired place which leads to play off.
While coach Francisco can not count on Jaime Romero who came on a loan from Cordoba as well as the injured Luis Ruiz and Álvaro Lemos but important midfielder Ramón Azeez recovers.
Considering the importance of the game for both clubs as the fact that neither team will be satisfied with the point and with all of the above I think fans will have a chance to watch a beautiful match with a lot of goals.
