Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere will host Sunday’s football game between Real Oviedo and Castellon. Real Oviedo aim to build on a 2-1 win over Las Palmas, and a triumph over Castellon will see them escape the danger zone. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Nahuel Leiva, who is likely to keep his place in the starting XI after scoring a brace against Las Palmas.
Castellon, on the other hand, have been totally out of form of late, with the team suffering a loss in each of their previous five league fixtures. The visitors head into the match with the lack of confidence, and seeing that Oviedo have turned their Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere into a real fortress, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. Castellon midfielder Arturo Molina misses the game through suspension.
Highlighted Team (Castellon):
CD Castellon is a Spanish club based in the Valencian Community. Valencia flag dominates the club’s crest, but their home colours are white with black stripes. Castellon footballers wear green jerseys and green shorts when playing on the travels.
The club have been having their ups and downs ever since it was founded on July 20, 1922, with the team finishing fifth in the Spanish elite division in the 1972/73 season. It has to be noted that Castellon have not played in La Liga since the 1990/91 campaign when they suffered relegation to Segunda Division. Nowadays, Castellon compete in the Spanish second tier, with the team welcoming their rivals at Nou Castalia stadium.
Legendary Spanish coach Vicente Del Bosque played for the club in the 1970s. Castellon’s biggest success came in the 1972/73 season as they participated in the Copa del rey final. However, Athletic Bilbao proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
