Real Oviedo has a very decent October, but after three victories and a draw, the team failed to get anything out of their visit to Malaga last Saturday evening.
The game itself had some decent phases from both sides, but the interesting things happened in the last thirty-five minutes of the game, as the players of Malaga took the double lead within eight minutes to get the victory, with the guests only being able to reduce towards the end via Balde in the 84th minute.
Oviedo is now equal in points with the relegation placed teams and needs to seek further improvement in front of this match.
Almeria did exactly the opposite in the previous LaLiga 2 clash last Sunday, as the team finally got a victory after six matches with no three-pointer.
It was a 3:2 home victory over Extremadura UD, but it should be said that it came a bit easier than what the final result says.
The hosts looked sharper and had a 3:0 lead all the way till the second minute of added time when the guests scored twice inside the injury time to scare the opponent properly.
Almeria is now back to the second position with eight points less than leaders from Cadiz and surely wanting to improve further their chances of direct promotion.
Defenders Arribas (4/0), Johannesson (5/0) and midfielder Suarez (6/0) should be out injured. Forward Sangalli (13/1) also won’t participate in this one for the hosts. Defenders Fernandez (2/0) and Owona (9/00 should be out injured for the guests.
There is no doubt that Oviedo will want to continue with positive outcomes in front of its own fans and won’t hesitate much to start attacking here.
Almeria is surely not gonna defend and is more than capable of scoring here too, with their problems staying more with the defensive line on the road. Both teams to score seems like a perfect first option.
