Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Mirandes and Real Oviedo go head to head at Estadio Municipal de Anduva in what is expected to be a close encounter. Mirandes did well to hold Alcorcon to a goalless draw in the opening match of the season, but they face yet another difficult task on day 2. Talented summer signing Andre Schutte is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts against Oviedo. Los Carbayones, on the other hand, failed to turn their dominance into goals in a draw with Cartagena.
However, Real Oviedo’s display in the season opener is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Mirandes. Considering that there will be no spectators at Estadio Municipal de Anduva, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team. Latest signings Nahuel and Arbujania are unlikely to feature for Real Oviedo this weekend.
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.
