Leganes vs Real Oviedo Preview
This is the third match of a period which will see almost all Segunda Division sides play five games in the space of a fortnight, so it’s a key phase in the season as we start to get a picture as to which teams will be competing for promotion this term. Leganes are certainly aiming to be one of those sides and they are back at Butarque on Sunday to take on Real Oviedo.
It has been a mixed start for Lega on their return to the second tier after a longer top flight stay than anyone realistically expected. Javier Aguirre has departed and last season’s brave fight to stay in LaLiga must now seem like a distant memory.
Under new boss José Luis Martí, they’ve won four and lost three so far, with their latest match resulting in a solid 1-0 victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Real Zaragoza. All but one of their wins so far have come on home soil and it’s clear that Butarque is going to have to be a fortress for the South Madrid outfit if they are going to push for promotion.
Opponents Real Oviedo meanwhile were involved in the relegation scrap last season and the early signs this term aren’t much more encouraging. They’ve only won once so far, although to the joy of Oviedo fans that was the derby against bitter Asturian rivals Sporting.
They have largely been toothless in attack though with just 3 goals scored in their 7 matches to date. Even that solitary win was delivered from the penalty spot and it’s hard to see them creating much here against a solid Leganes defence.
Head to Head
- Last 6 Competitive Meetings: 3 Leganes Wins, 2 Real Oviedo Wins, 1 Draw.
- The sides last met in Leganes’ promotion winning 2015/16 Segunda Division campaign. The South Madrid side took 4 points off Oviedo that season but were held to a draw at Butarque.
- Real Oviedo haven’t won on any of their last 4 visits to this ground, with 3 of those games taking place in the Segunda B.
Leganes vs Real Oviedo Predictions
Score Prediction: Leganes 1-0 Real Oviedo
Leganes average just one goal per game so far this season so there is clearly room for improvement in the final third of the pitch. However, they do quite clearly have a bit more quality than their opponents and in what promises to be a tight, low-scoring game, Leganes should have the edge.
