Real Oviedo will play in this match after a 1-1 La Liga 2 drawn match vs FC Cartagena.
In that match, Real Oviedo managed 72% possession and 18 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Real Oviedo was Paulino (97'). At the other end, Cartagena got 2 shots on goal with 1 on target. Iván Calero (2') was the scorer for FC Cartagena.
Their latest results really do illustrate the point that quality has been evident in the Real Oviedo defence. Real Oviedo have given the opposition little, resulting in the number of goals that have gone in at their end over the course of their last 6 outings standing at 2.
Looking at their past form shows that Real Oviedo:
- have not beaten Eibar when playing them at home in the previous 3 league matches.
- remain unbeaten by Eibar when playing them at home in the previous 2 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their last 4 home league matches.
In their last game, Eibar drew 1-1 in the La Liga 2 match with Albacete.

Over the course of their previous half-dozen outings, Eibar have helped themselves to a tally of 16 goals. Eibar have additionally got on the scoresheet in every single one of those games. During that period, they’ve had 7 goals go into their own net. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be sustained here, of course.
Head to head
A quick look at past results between these clubs stretching back to 02/11/2002 tells us that these fixtures have been a source of anguish for Real Oviedo. They’ve not been able to get any victories at all whereas Eibar have been too good for them, getting wins in 67% of those games played.
12 goals were shared by the two clubs in these games, with 4 of them from Carbayones and 8 belonging to Armeros. That’s an average goals per game of 2.
The previous league fixture featuring the two was La Liga 2 match day 34 on 01/04/2023 when it finished Real Oviedo 1-1 Eibar.
In that game, Real Oviedo had 46% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 1 on target. The scorer was Sergi Enrich (59').

Team News: Real Oviedo
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just one fitness concern for the Real Oviedo manager Luis Carrión to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Álex Millán (Cruciate ligament tear) misses out.
In our view, Carbayones will possibly use a 4-2-3-1 system for this game featuring Leo Román, Oier Luengo, David Costas, Dani Calvo, Abel Bretones, Santiago Cazorla, Santiago Colombatto, V. Álvarez Rozada, Jaime Seoane, Sebastian Moyano and Borja Bastón.
Team News: Eibar
Owing to a completely healthy squad to pick from, the Eibar boss Joseba Etxeberria has zero fitness concerns to report coming into this clash.
It’s our belief that Armeros might elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation by sending out Luca Zidane, Á. T. Sacristán, Juan Berrocal, A. Zabala Arbilla, J. Antonio Ríos, Sergio Alvarez Diaz, Matheus Pereira, Ager Aketxe, Mario Soriano, Stoichkov and Jon Bautista.
In our opinion, Real Oviedo will have to work hard as a team to break down this Eibar outfit who we think should get the vital goal that wins it.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even match with a 0-1 advantage for Eibar when all is said and done.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
