Espanyol Preview – Can Espanyol close gap?

A win for 2nd placed Espanyol in this Friday night clash against Real Oviedo at their RCDE Stadium would see the hosts move to within a point of the current La Liga 2 leaders, Mallorca, and with a four-match unbeaten run behind them, Espanyol look set for success here.

Recent wins against Mallorca and Sabadell along with picking up points in draws with Lugo and Sporting Gijon have helped maintain Espanyol’s push for automatic promotion back up to La Liga but with the likes of Almeria breathing down their necks, the hosts know they can’t afford a slip-up here.

Espanyol hold an impressive record at home though of 10-1-2 22/7 which includes an equally impressive nine clean sheets and it’s been their solid defensive unit which has underpinned Espanyol’s success so far this season.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Real Oviedo Preview – Can Real Oviedo extend unbeaten run?

Having drawn the second most number of matches to date in this season’s La Liga 2 campaign, it’s perhaps no surprise that Real Oviedo find themselves in a mid-table position of 11th prior to this Friday night clash against high-flying Espanyol.

Real Oviedo bring a three-match unbeaten run though into this match having recorded recent wins against Lugo and Real Zaragoza which will be a boost to the visitors ahead of this tough trip, but it should be noted that both of these wins were recorded on home turf at their Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere.

Results away from home though haven’t been quite so convincing as Real Oviedo have failed to win any of their last five matches on their travels which includes defeats at Ponferradina and Cartagena.
