Rayo Majadahonda vs Oviedo
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: Sunday, 14 October 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Rayo Majadahonda ended the three-loss streak by claiming the Sporting Gijon scalp last weekend. Aitor Garcia and Isaac Carcelen bagged first half goals to seal the way to team’s third victory in eight games. The recently-promoted side thus climbed up to 14th place in the league ladder and they’ll head into Sunday’s home game against Real Oviedo high on confidence aiming to capitalize on the previous round success.
The visitors, who barely missed out on the promotional play-offs spots last term, began the new season in a hot and cold fashion. They took 12 points from 8 fixtures, but obviously lack consistency required for the promotional bid or even a potential top-two finish at the end of the campaign.
Rayo Majadahonda vs Oviedo: Head-to-head
The two sides will lock horns for the first time ever this Sunday, following Rayo Majadahonda’s inaugural promotion to the second tier of Spanish football.
Rayo Majadahonda vs Oviedo: Prediction
The hosts entered the new season looking to save the second tier status exclusively as they’ve never played at this level in the past. However, Antonio Iriondo’s troops have already shown they have what it takes to stay competitive in this division and they will come into this Oviedo tie in high spirits.
Majariegos will rely on a decent home form having won two of last three league games at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. They are still underdogs against Oviedo, though, especially if we know Anquela’s boys enjoyed a strong form away from home so far in the season.
Oviedo won two, drew one and lost one of four away outings in the league. They bagged a five six-goal tally in three games away from home before falling 2-0 to Alcorcon in the previous away fixture.
Rayo’s defense allowed four goals in a demolishing home defeat to Extremadura UD in mid-September and we might look for the value in backing Oviedo to net two or more goals at the odds of 2.62.
