Real Oviedo vs Deportivo La Coruna Preview


Real Oviedo vs Deportivo La Coruna predictions

This is a massive football match for two famous old clubs who are in real danger of dropping down into the Segunda B. Depor travel to Asturias, level on points with Oviedo in the table. The hosts are currently just outside the relegation zone while Depor are just below that dreaded dotted line. However a draw here would leave the visitors with the superior head-to-head record which could be significant come the end of the season.

On paper, Real Oviedo are the form team. They’ve taken 7 points from their last 3 games but with 6 of those points having come back in March prior to the interruption to the season, they don’t really take great momentum into this game. Their first game back was also at the Carlos Tartiere and ended in a goalless draw against mid-table Ponferradina.

Depor also got their season back underway with a 0-0 draw at home against Sporting Gijon. They’ve gone 5 without victory now since putting that remarkable 7 game winning streak together around the turn of the year. It’s safe to say that the honeymoon period of Fernando Vazquez is now over and so is any talk of an unlikely surge up towards play-off contention.

Staying in this league is all that these two sides are worried about and it promises to be a nervy game and indeed a nervy end to the season for both clubs and their supporters. With home advantage, Oviedo will be the slight favourites here but with just 4 home victories all season, and no supporters in the stadium to cheer them on, it feels like a game that could go either way and may be decided by a moment of magic, or perhaps more likely a mistake.

Real Oviedo vs Deportivo La Coruna Predictions

Score Prediction: 0-0 Draw

It’s impossible to call this game and given the magnitude of it, it’s hard to see either coach taking any big risks in search of a winner. Both Depor and Oviedo returned to action with goalless draws and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if this one also ended in stalemate with neither side looking threatening in the final third.
