The Monday night game in the Segunda Division this week comes from Asturias. It sees a red hot Almeria side looking to extend their winning streak against a Real Oviedo team that has also been in decent form, showing some signs that they can improve on last season’s brush with relegation.

Ultimately Oviedo beat the drop with a degree of comfort, winning 3 of their final 4 fixtures in 2019/20. After a slow start to the 2020/21 campaign, Cuco Ziganda will feel as though he is continuing to make progress and his team come into this match unbeaten in 5 games overall.

That run has seen Oviedo claim impressive away wins against Real Zaragoza and Las Palmas. However they have only won 2 out of 7 at the Carlos Tartiere this season and were held by Fuenlabrada in their last outing on this ground.

While Oviedo’s Asturian rivals Sporting are also riding high, it’s Almeria who look most capable of challenging the recently relegated teams in the race for promotion to the top flight this season. No side has taken more points from their last 8 Segunda Division fixtures than Almeria who have won 7 of those matches, including each of their last 5.

While the loss of Darwin Nunez was always going to hit them hard, new signings appear to be gelling together nicely and the goals have been spread around quite well and only Espanyol can better their average of 1.31 goals per game. A 6th straight victory here would propel Almeria into 3rd place and they’d still have a game in hand on the top two.

Head to Head

  • Last 6 Competitive Meetings: 2 Oviedo Wins, 2 Almeria Wins, 2 Draws.
  • Oviedo failed to score against Almeria last season, drawing 0-0 at home and losing 2-0 in Andalusia.
  • Almeria are unbeaten on their last 2 trips to the Carlos Tartiere, having lost on each of the previous 3.

Real Oviedo vs Almeria Predictions


Score Prediction: Real Oviedo 1-2 Almeria

Almeria are strong travellers and they’ve won each of their last 4 Segunda Division away games. The early signs suggest there may just be a steel to them that was perhaps lacking last term as they continue to grind out wins and edge tight games. They may just have a bit too much for Real Oviedo here.
