Fight for tranquility

Both teams need a win to calm their nerves at this point in the season. Logroñés has only added one win in the last thirteen games.


Loquillo says in his Cruzando el Paraíso that "nothing remains, everything fades." Something like that must be thinking albivermellos and white and red in the run up to their game. In the Anxo Carro two streaks will be crossed with more lights than shadows, but which remain far from burning thanks to past results. Logroñés will arrive in Lugo having added only six points from the last 36, while Lugo takes refuge in its territory - undefeated since Nafti's arrival, nine days already - from shipwrecks as a visitor. Both out of relegation, yes, but both with the need to add three points that prevent rents from starting to fall short (follow the match live on .

To get back on the road to victory, Nafti will line up a very recognizable eleven. Djaló will return to the axis of the rear after penalizing his expulsion against Espanyol, and Gerard Valentín will occupy the right-handed end in a fight with Appiah for a place in the eleven. It is expected that Puma will continue to gain minutes on the left and some retouching in the midfield is not ruled out, where Xavi Torres and Juanpe will have to dispute the minutes with the two captains, Pita and Seoane. Above, Manu Barreiro will be the bulwark to throw balls to. There are no emergencies, but there is a need for a victory against a direct rival to scare the shadows.

For its part, Logroñés arrives in Lugo in a delicate but not critical state. The numbers do not deceive him and show a victory in the last thirteen days and four goals in favor for 22 against. Only the cushion of six consecutive victories in November allows him to remain out of relegation. The coach, Sergio Rodríguez, is increasingly questioned, and continues without being able to count on Iñaki, captain and soul of the team. Neither will Nano Mesa and Bogusz, two of the highest quality men on the squad. The red and white need to break the scoring drought and regain their best version in both areas: solidity at the back and effectiveness at the top. In short, a game in which a victory will be worth more tranquility than the three points for both.
