Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Levante will be aiming to sneak into the automatic promotion places when they take on Real Oviedo in the last game of the regular season. Los Levantinos are eyeing their 11th home win of the process and they are seen as hot favourites to win Saturday’s encounter. A man to watch in the home team will be Jonathan Montiel, who scored a brace in a 3-2 win over Villarreal B, while all Pablo Martinez, Dani Cardenas, and Jose Campana are out of contention through injuries.
Los Azules, on the other hand, missed out on a spot in the playoffs despite producing fine displays in the season finale and seeing that they head into the match with the lack of motivation, home win should be considered. Rodrigo Tarin remains in the treatment room, while all Angel Montoro, Jimmy Suarez, and Javi Mier are major doubts.
Highlighted Player (José Campaña):
Jose Campana is a Spanish footballer who plays for Levante in La Liga as a midfielder. Born in Seville on May 31, 1993, Campana began his youth career in his home-town club Sevilla and he eventually played 20 games in La Liga for the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan outfit.
In 2013 he moved to England, signing a contract with Crystal Palace, but he made no more than six appearances in the league for the capital club. After ending his loan spell with Nurnberg in 2014, Jose Campana joined Serie A side Sampdoria, but he was immediately sent on loan to Porto. The Spanish midfielder played no more than two games for Porto in Primeira Liga and in 2015 he signed a loan deal with Spanish Segunda Division side Alcorcon.
In the summer of 2016 Campana moved to Levante and he has been playing for los Levantinos ever since. His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both defensive midfielder and attacking midfielder as well.
Highlighted Team (Oviedo):
Based in Oviedo, Asturias, Real Oviedo is a Spanish club that plays home games at Carlos Tartiere. Carlos Tartiere is one of the biggest stadiums in Segunda division as it can hold up to 30,500 spectators. Los Azules competed in La Liga in the 1990s, but in the 2001/02 campaign they suffered relegation to Segunda Division.
Real Oviedo have not competed in the Spanish top flight ever since. In the 1991/92 season los Azules represented Spain in the UEFA Cup, but Genoa proved to be a big catch for them in the round of 64. Real Oviedo have a rivalry with Sporting Gijon, with the two teams facing each other in the Asturian derby.
The likes of Robert Prosinecki, Stan Collymore, Dely Valdes, Abel Xavier, Paulo Bento, Marius Lacatus, Viktor Onopko, Ratomir Dujkovic, Juan Mata, Michu, Ibrahima Balde, and Slavisa Jokanovic are the famoust footballers who were part of Oviedo in the past. Carlos Munoz Cobo is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart.
