Real Oviedo vs UD Ibiza
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: 29 May 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere (Oviedo).
Real Oviedo suffered a painful 2-1 defeat at Las Palmas in the direct clash for the promotional playoffs last weekend.
They dropped out of the top-six spots in Segunda Division table, well confounding their playoffs ambitions ahead of the final day fixtures.
Real Oviedo are two points below Girona and Las Palmas in fifth and sixth place respectively but they have a worse H2H record with both these outfits.
This means that Oviedo need to beat UD Ibiza and hope that either Girona (away at Burgos) or Las Palmas (away at Sporting Gijon) lose their ties in Matchday No 42.
It is not a mission impossible, especially after what we have seen so far in the season. Nevertheless, let’s turn the attention towards this game.
Real Oviedo are heavy favorites for multiple reasons. Besides motivation (UD Ibiza have nothing to play for), they also own a fantastic record at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere.
Real Oviedo won 10, drew 8, and lost just 2 of 21 home matches in this term of Segunda Division.
They are up against UD Ibiza whose players have been on the beach in the last couple of weeks, lacking proper motivation to compete in the final quarter of the season.

Real Oviedo vs UD Ibiza Prediction
Ibiza shipped six goals in the last two defeats to Mirandes and Real Valladolid. They have won just one of the previous six league outings and have nothing but pride left to play for.
On the other side, Real Oviedo can’t afford anything else but a win and hope the results in the other games on the final day go their way. We will back Real Oviedo to win at the 1.57 odds, while you can also get the hosts to score two or more goals at the odds of 1.61.
