Real Oviedo vs Espanyol Preview 


Real Oviedo lost just two games at home in this entire season, while almost half of Espanyol’s road contests ended without a winner. The stakes are high, so I expect a tight tussle to end in a draw.

  • Real Oviedo are unbeaten in 18 of their last 19 home matches (Segunda Division). 
  • Espanyol have drawn 6 of their last 8 away matches. 

Head to Head 


Espanyol have a 9-4 advantage against Real Oviedo with 5 draws in 18 matches. 

They last met in May, the game being won by Espanyol 2-1. 

Real Oviedo Form 


Real Oviedo were tagged underdogs in the Segunda Division playoff semifinal against Eibar. The first tie at home ended without goals, winning the second game 2-0 with Alemao and Sebas Moyano hitting the target in second half. 

Los Azules barely made it to the Segunda Division playoffs, finishing the regular season in 6th place with 64 points from 42 matches, sharing the same number of points as Racing Santander who ended below the line. 

Before the mentioned clash against Eibar, Real Oviedo won their last two appearances at home against FC Andorra 3-0 (Masca on target, Paulino de la Fuente scoring a brace), and Real Zaragoza 1-0 (Alemao scoring a late winner). 

Real Oviedo Injuries & Team News 


Santi Cazorla, David Costas and Rodri Tarin are injured. 

Mario Hernandez is doubtful. 

Espanyol Form 


Manolo Gonzalez’s side claimed a deserved 1-0 victory in the playoff semifinal against Sporting Gijon, Javi Puado scoring a late goal in the first match, the second tie ending in a goalless draw in Barcelona. 

Espanyol ended the Segunda Division 2023/24 campaign in 4th place with 69 points, just three points short of direct promotion to the top flight.   

Los Periquitos were victorious in the final round at home against FC Cartagena 3-0, scoring all three goals in the second half through Javi Puado, Martin Braithwaite and Nico Melamed.   

The main reason why they missed on direct promotion is high number of draws recently – eight in their last eleven Segunda Division appearances. Espanyol were held to goalless draws by Amorebieta, Real Valladolid and Sporting Gijon in May. 

Espanyol Injuries & Team News 


Edu Exposito and Omar Sadik are injured. 

Verdict

Espanyol have specialized in draws, six of their last eight games on the road ending without a winner. Real Oviedo lost just twice at home this season, so I see value in backing the draw.
