Competition: Spanish Segunda

Market: Real Oviedo win

Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport

Smelling the chance to lay down another Segunda marker on Sunday afternoon, Real Oviedo will welcome Ponferradina to the Carlos Tartiere.

Starting with the hosts, while Real Oviedo might need a minor miracle if they’re to claim a play-off spot this season, Alvaro Cervera’s men have continued on a real Segunda purple patch since returning from March’s international break. Last seen putting in another eye-catching display as they claimed a 2-1 victory away at Ibiza, Los Azules have collected 10 points from their last four second-tier appearances. In fact, causing a real upset on April 9th as they snatched a 1-0 win away at promotion contenders Las Palmas, the Blues have won each of their previous three straight Segunda outings. Likewise, suffering just a single defeat from any of their last seven appearances, Oviedo should also be excited by their most recent showdown at the Carlos Tartiere. Last seen in front of their own supporters landing a 2-1 victory against Lugo, Cervera’s side should be confident of making another Segunda statement on Sunday afternoon.

As for the visitors, while Oviedo might be enjoying an extended flurry, the same cannot be said for a struggling Ponferradina. Last seen putting in a nightmare display on home soil as they were hit with a 4-1 drumming at the hands of Andorra, Sunday’s guests find themselves tipped as a leading relegation contender in 2023. Freefalling their way out of Spain’s second-tier and already sat eight points adrift of safety, Le Ponfe have remarkably recorded just a single win from any of their last 15 straight appearances across all formats. With their Segunda nightmare stemming all the way back to a 2-1 victory against Villarreal B on January 6th, there is no doubt that Juanfran’s men face a huge challenge this weekend. It should also be noted, suffering a routine 2-0 loss when they last traveled to the Carlos Tartiere back in December 2021, we are expecting a similar home victory here.

Bet: Real Oviedo 11/10 to beat Ponferradina in Sunday’s Segunda battle @ 888sport
