Real Oviedo vs Rayo Majadahonda
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Tuesday, 4 June 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere (Oviedo).
Rayo Majadahonda are not been pulling up any trees coming into the penultimate round tie against Real Oviedo on Sunday evening at Estadio Nuevo Cartlos Tartiere.
The visitors are thus facing an uphill battle eyeing to prevent the immediate return to the third tier of Spanish football. They are three points shy of the safe zone with a worse goal difference (identical head to head record) to Lugo, meaning only a win here would keep them with mathematical chances of avoiding the drop.
Nonetheless, it is very hard to see victory coming for the visitors. They took only two points in last seven rounds. Antonio Iriondo’s men shipped as many as eight goals during a three-loss thread before they drew 0-0 to already-relegated Cordoba last weekend.

This will only be the second ever head to head encounter between the two sides.
Rayo Majadahonda claimed a surprising 1-0 victory back in mid-October last year.
Real Oviedo vs Rayo Majadahonda: Prediction
Oviedo missed promotional play-offs just by the head to head record rule last season. They are once again super-close to the top-six finish, but will likely stay short-handed with a four-point deficit to the likes of Cadiz and Deportivo La Coruna coming into last two games of the campaign.
The hosts missed numerous chances to close the gap in the past couple of weeks. Carbayones won just one of last four league matches and they lost two of last three.
The head coach Sergio Egea will rely on his men’s superb home record which reveals that Oviedo won 9, drew 9 and lost only 2 of 20 league games in their own backyard this season.
Rayo lost three on the spin away from home conceding seven goals in the process. Oviedo’s forwards should really have plenty of room to create past one of the weakest defensive lines in the division here.
