Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After suffering a shocking loss to lower-league side Portugalete in their Copa del Rey opener, Ponferradina will be looking to return to winning ways when they host Real Oviedo at their Estadio El Toralin. La Ponfe are only one point behind the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Friday’s football game. The likes of Yac Magagi, David Panadero, Adrian Castellano, Antonio Rios, and Oscar Sielva are sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Curro Sanchez is out of contention through suspension.
Real Oviedo, on the other hand, did well to beat Sabadell and Tenerife in the previous two league fixtures, with the team eliminating Coria in the Spanish Cup. Grippo is rated doubtful for the Ponferradina game, while Leschuk, Borja Sanchez and Nieto return to the starting XI. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
