Real Oviedo vs Real Zaragoza
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: 2nd October 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere, Oviedo.
Judging by the results achieved in the opening six rounds of Segunda Division, we are not going to see Real Oviedo and Real Zaragoza back to the Spanish elite for a long time. Once, these two teams were standard members of La Liga, but spent the last couple of years dwelling in the 2nd division. They will close the 7th round on Monday at Nuevo Carlos Tartiare Stadium.
Start of the new season wasn’t so great for Anquela and his players. Real Oviedo collected only eight points from the opening six games, sitting in the 12th place on the table.
All games played at their stadium so far were very interesting to watch. Oviedo won two out of three encounters here, against Reus Deporiu and Cadiz (3-0 and 1-0) while losing the opener to Rayo Vallecano 2-3. The general impression is they could improve defending a little bit.
The opposition had even worst start this year. Zaragoza are very close to the relegation zone, having only five points on their account. Inability to win the games in front of home crowd is one of the main reasons for poor placement.
They improved the form recently, advancing to the next stage of Copa del Rey over Lugo, while also winning a point against Gimnastic last weekend.
Real Oviedo vs Real Zaragoza: Head to head
A lot of recent head to head duels ended with low number of goals. Four out of the last five encounters had two or less goals scored total.
Real Oviedo vs Real Zaragoza: Prediction
We are expecting to see a low scoring affair, but when it comes to full time winner, Real Oviedo is much closer to claiming points. They are one of the best hosts in the league.
