Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sunday’s football game at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere pits together Real Oviedo and Mallorca, the two teams who have been playing some exciting games of late. Real Oviedo recorded a 4-2 win over ten-man Tenerife in their last home game in La Liga 2, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fourth home victory of the season. Los Azules, though, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss at Ponferradina on Matchday 19, with the team having no more than six goal attempts.
Los Bermellones, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a heart-breaking 3-2 loss to Fuenlabrada. Since both Raillo and Cufre miss the game through suspension, we predict that Real Oviedo are going to pick up one point from the match against the promotion-chasing visitors. In their last meeting at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
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 (Mallorca):
Thanks to a win over Deportivo La Coruna in the 2018/2019 Segunda Division play-offs final Mallorca secured promotion to Primera Division. Los Bermellones returned to the Spanish top flight following a six-year absence. Over the years Mallorca have turned their Estadi de son Moix into a real fortress, with the team producing much better showings at home than on the travels.
Opened in June 1999, the venue can hold up to 23,142 people. The club based in Balearic Islands are well known for their red shirts with one black stripe and black shorts. Mallorca’s away colours are white and red. Former Barcelona and Inter ace Samuel Eto’o is undisputedly the most notable footballer who played for the club.
Back in 1999 Mallorca made it to the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup final, with the team suffering a 2-1 loss to Lazio in the title game. Four years later los Bermellones won Spanish Copa del Rey, which is considered the club’s biggest success.
