Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over promotion hopefuls Real Valladolid, Villarreal B will look to escape the danger zone when they take on Real Oviedo on Matchday 21. Barring any fresh injury worries, head coach Miguel Alvarez is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated La Pucela on Monday evening. The experienced tactician should stick to the 4-4-2 formation with Pascual and Fores up front.
Los Azules, meanwhile, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Elche, but beating Villarreal B on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Lucas Ahijado limped off with injury in the triumph against los Franjiverdes, with Viti likely to step up. Ahijado has joined the likes of Camarasa, Costas, Ibarra, de le Fuente, Mario Hernandez, Alex Millan, and Rodrigo Tarin in the recovery room.
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.
