Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Oviedo will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Tenerife when they take on Ferrol in the La Liga 2 round 2. Oviedo failed to impress in the season opener with no attempts on target, but they are surely capable of making life difficult for the newcomers in front of home fans. All Lucas Ahijado, Alex Millan, and Rodrigo Tarin are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Ferrol, on the other hand, did well to beat Elche on the road at the weekend, with summer signing Iker Losada scoring the only goal of the match. The 22-year-old should keep his place in the starting XI, while there are no fresh injury concerns in the away team ahead of the trip to Asturias. In their last meeting in a competitive match, back in 2015, the two teams played out a goalless draw, but home win should be considered this time out.
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.
