Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Monday’s football game between Real Oviedo and Zaragoza will bring down the curtain on day 40 of the 2021/2022 Segunda Division campaign. Real Oviedo are eager to stay in the playoffs berth, and they have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Zaragoza. Jose Ziganda should have a full squad to choose from this time out.
Los Blanquillos, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous four league fixtures. Zaragoza failed to impress in back-to-back losses to Eibar and Alcorcon, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. As for the visiting team, Nano Mesa is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Eugeni, who limped off with injury in a 3-0 loss to Alcorcon, is unlikely to feature against Oviedo.
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 (Zaragoza):
Based in the autonomous community of Aragon, Zaragoza is a Spanish football club that plays in Segunda Division. The club was founded on March 18, 1932 and it plays their home matches at the legendary La Romareda stadium.
The venue opened on September 8, 1957 has the capacity of 33,608 people. Los Blanquillos wear white shirts and blue shorts when playing on home soil, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit. Zaragoza did well to win the la liga trophy in the 1977/78 season, with the team finishing the campaign four points clear of second-place Recreativo de Huelva.
Speaking of the club’s European success, Zaragoza clinched the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in the 1994/95 season as they defeated 2-1 in the title game. Fabio Coentrao, Pablo Aimar, Roberto Ayala, Diego Milito, Gabriel Milito, Cafu, and David Villa are the most notable footballers who played for the club in the past. Huesca are considered the club’s main rivals.
