Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Real Oviedo and Fuenlabrada go head to head at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere in the La Liga 2 round 33. Los Azules are eyeing a place in the playoffs, while Fuenla are desperate to secure the survival. Real Oviedo are six points behind top six, meaning that Saturday’s clash is of big importance for the home team. Borja Baston, who scored a late equalizer in a 1-1 draw with Lugo, should continue to lead the line for the hosts, while midfielder Luismi is back from suspension.
Fuenlabrada, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Malaga, and they managed to get one thanks to Mohamed Bouildini’s goal. The visitors face yet another must-win game, and seeing that both sides will go for a triumph, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Both Iban Salvador and Velasco Jano are injured for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Alejandro Arribas ):
Born in Madrid, Spain on May 1, 1989, Alejandro Arribas is a Spanish footballer who plays for Real Oviedo in La Liga 2. Arribas is a very experienced defender as he played for Primera Division sides Rayo Vallecano, Osasuna, Deportivo La Coruna and Sevilla in the past.
He is a product of Rayo Majadahonda football school, but he did not see any game action with the club at senior level. Alejandro Arribas played for Mexican club UNAM before signing a three-year deal with Real Oviedo in the summer of 2019.
He made his debut with los Azules in a 2-1 loss to Fuenlabrada on August 31, 2019. The towering defender has never received a call-up for the Spain national football team. His main position is centre-back, but he can be used as a right-back as well if needed. The right-footed footballer has a contract with Real Oviedo until June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Fuenlabrada):
Nicknamed los Kirikos, Fuenlabrada is a Spanish football club that competes in Segunda Division. Fuenlabrada was founded in 1975, with the team securing promotion to La Liga 2 for the first time in the 2019/20 season.
Fuenla finished the campaign in the 8th place in the standings, and, as a result, they missed out on a place in the Segunda division playoffs. Los Kirikos wear blue shirts and blue shorts when playing on home soil, while their away kit is mainly red. Estadio Fernando Torres is the club’s home ground. The venue was named under legendary Spanish attacker Fernando Torres, who scored 38 goals in 110 appearances for La Furia Roja on the international stage.
“El Nino”, who was born in Fuenlabrada, played for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea, Milan, and Sagan Tosu during his professional career. Dioni is leading Fuenlabrada all-time top scorers list as he netted 47 goals in 82 appearances for the club.
