This is a big fight in the battle against relegation. Real Oviedo are starting fourth-from bottom, occupying an automatic relegation spot. But they have managed to go unbeaten in three.

Deportivo are just a place above them on goal difference only. There are a massive three points up for grabs in this one. The pressure is well and truly on.

Can Oviedo defend home territory?

Oviedo does at least have the home advantage in this big clash. They returned from lockdown and banked a point at home in a 0-0 draw with Ponferradina.

That moved them on to a three-match undefeated streak of league form (W2 D1). So there is survival hope there from them. Their home record for the campaign is not that bad.

At least not in terms of losing much. They are W4 D9 L3 for the season on home turf. They have only suffered one loss in their last six home league fixtures.

Only 31% of Oviedo’s home games in this campaign have made it over 2.5 goals. Given the pressure of the situation in this one, it’s worth leaning on a low scoring game.

Only three of Oviedo’s last thirteen league outings have gone over 2.5 goals. So there’s a definite trend there. Their record at home against teams in the bottom half of the table is good.

Our betting prediction:
Under 1.5 goals

(odds taken 21:17 GMT, Tuesday 26th May)

Oviedo have not lost at home against a team currently in the bottom half of the table (W2 D5). They have also been drawing at half time in 9 of their 16 home league games.

Six of those half time score lines were 0-0. This would be a massive step towards salvation if they could pick up the three points. But they are winless in their last five against Deportivo.


Will Deportivo get valuable away points?

Deportivo’s season has been a stressful one. After winning their opening game of the season, they failed to collect another in any of their following 19 fixtures.

But then they exploded into life when things were looking lost, to post a seven-match winning streak. But they are currently without a win in five since that ended.

On their return to action from lockdown, they played out a 0-0 draw with Sporting Gijon. That means that Deportivo have failed to hit the back of the net in any of their last three league fixtures.

The away record of Deportivo is W3 D5 L8. They have lost their last two on the road, however, going down 3-1 at Real Zaragoza and then 4-0 at Almeria.

Oviedo vs Deportivo La Coruna Betting Advice

This is bound to be tense and we can see Oviedo doing enough to avoid defeat in this one. They have been a tough side to beat on home turf during this campaign.

But they, by the same token, do still look a bit risky to back to get the victory on the board. So we simply have to settle in the middle and look for the draw in the match outright.
