Real Oviedo boss José Ziganda will be thankful to have no fitness worries whatsoever before this match with a completely injury-free squad available to choose from.
Team News: Rayo Vallecano
Thanks to a mainly available squad, there is just a single fitness issue for the Rayo Vallecano boss Andoni Iraola to contend with. Antoñín (Knee Problems) won’t be playing here.
It’s looking like Rayo Vallecano and Real Oviedo should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner.
A draw is a real possibility, as we are expecting there to be little between them. Our tip is therefore for a very close game with a score draw at the end of this one.
