Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Saturday’s football game at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere pits together Real Oviedo and Eibar, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale. Oviedo are desperate to secure the La Liga 2 survival, while Eibar are eyeing Primera Division promotion. Los Azules were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Granada at the weekend, but the Andalusians eventually scored a late winner to pick up all three points from the match. All Leonardo Sequeira, Rodrigo Tarin, and Jimmy Suarez miss out with injuries, while both Javi Mier and Carlos Pomares are major doubts.
Los Armeros, on the other hand, are determined to cement top position in the standings. Eibar are eyeing their fourth consecutive away win on the road, and seeing that they defeated Oviedo earlier in the process, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. Keep in mind that midfielder Javi Munoz is banned for the visiting side.
