Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere will host Sunday’s La Liga 2 game between Real Oviedo and Real Valladolid, the two bottom-table sides. Los Azules are desperate to escape the relegation zone, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. To make things even worse for the hosts, midfielder Luismi serves a one-game ban following his sending-off in a 1-0 loss to Andorra.
La Pucela, on the other hand, did well to beat Cartagena at the weekend, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Valladolid, though, have been struggling on the travels in the new Segunda Division campaign and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing more than one point from Sunday’s clash. The good news for the visiting side is that Jonathan Montiel is back from suspension, but Javi Sanchez is sidelined with injury.
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.
