Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Oviedo and Cartagena go head to head at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere in the closing match of the La Liga 2 round 15. Los Azules are undefeated in the previous seven league matches, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet. Even though all Rodrigo Tarin, Mario Hernandez, and Romario Ibarra misses out with injuries, while both Luismi amd Alex Millan are major doubts.
Meanwhile, Cartagena aim to recover from a 3-0 loss to Leganes. Considering that the Black and Whites have been struggling to find their best form of late, we are tempted to put our money on Oviedo, who aim to move closer to the playoffs berth. As for the visiting team, both Juan Narvaez and Arnau Sola are sidelined with injuries, while both Mikel Rico and Hector Hevel are major doubts and the duo will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
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.
