Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
There will be fireworks when Zaragoza and Real Oviedo face each other at Estadio La Romareda on Friday evening. Zaragoza have been struggling to find their form in the first half of the season, with the team sitting in the danger zone ahead of Matchday 12, but this game could be the turning point for los Blanquillos. Real Oviedo, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Las Palmas and Castellon, and we believe that they are going to take advantage of Zaragoza’s poor form.
Even though los Azules are not regarded as good travellers, we predict that they will emerge triumphant in Friday’s showdown. Edgar Gonzalez scored a brace in the 4-0 crushing of Castellon at the weekend, meaning that the opposition back-line should have him at bay. Anyhow, Oviedo are more of a team than Zaragoza.
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.
