Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After sharing the spoils with Almeria at the weekend, Real Oviedo will be looking to move away from the danger zone when they take on Sabadell in the La Liga 2 round 38. Los Azulones are not enjoying a season to remember, and the team’s new goal is to secure the Segunda Division survival. Ghana international Samuel Obeng, who found the net in the 2-2 draw with Almeria, is widely expected to keep his place in the starting XI.
Sabadell, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Mallorca and Rayo Vallecano. The visitors are desperate to escape the relegation zone, and we predict that they are going to take advantage of Real Oviedo’s anything but brilliant form. Experienced attacker Iosu Ozkoidi will have to serve his ban against los Azulones as he was sent off in the triumph over los Vallecanos.
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 (Sabadell):
Sabadell is a professional Spanish club based in the autonomous community of Catalonia. Sabadell were founded back in 1903, with the team securing promotion to la liga for the first time during the World War II (1943/44).
Los Arlequinats have never won the national championship, but they did well to make it to the Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) final in 1935. Despite producing fine displays in the process, Sabadell were eventually beaten by Sevilla (0-3) in the title game. Nova Creu Alta is the club’s home ground, with the venue holding up to 11,908 spectators.
The stadium was built on August 20, 1967 by famous Spanish architect Gabriel Bracons Singla. Antonio Vazques (35 goals) is leading Sabadell’s all-time goal-scoring chart. It has to be noted that Sabadell fans have good relations with Bristol Rovers supporters. CD Ebro are seen as one of the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in el Derbi Arlequinado.
