Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Oviedo play host to Deportivo La Coruna at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere in the relegation six-pointer. Real Oviedo missed their loyal fans in a goalless draw with Ponferradina, with the team failing to create a descent goal-scoring opportunity, and, no doubt, they face a difficult task in the midweek clash against Deportivo. The Galicians, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their five-game winless run in Segunda Division.
Deportivo La Coruna failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, but we predict that they are going to take advantage of the fact that Real Oviedo struggle when playing behind closed doors. Talented Deportivo midfielder Victor Mollejo returns from suspension, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. In the first half of the season Deportivo La Coruna defeated Real Oviedo 3-2 at Riazor.
