16th-placed Oviedo will travel to El Toralin to play 18th-placed Ponferradina on Saturday as La Liga 2 resumes this World Cup weekend. The two sides are tied on 16 points after 15 game-weeks, but Ponferradina sit a couple of spots behind due to their poor goal difference. In fact, this is looking to be a very competitive Spanish second tier league since a long time, as the gap between the league leaders and these two bottom sides is just 14 points, which is not much if we compare to the gap in quality between all the teams involved. While Ponferradina have not shown any significant improvement in performance when playing at home, Oviedo have definitely looked shockingly sharper on away turf. The visitors have won just once in 7 outings, but have three draws too, resulting in more points won than defeats whenever not playing in their backyard.

Ponferradina vs Real Oviedo Betting Tips: Under 2.5 goals

There is a real pattern arising from the recent form, which can be connected to the head to head numbers. Oviedo have consistently opened the scoring in the first half in four of their last five games, while Ponferradina have been losing at half time on five of their last six occasions in La Liga 2. We expect a similar consequence on Saturday as Ponferradina should likely concede first in the former half and spend the rest of the ninety minutes chasing an equalizer. Six of the last seven meetings between the two sides have ended in under 2.5 goals being scored, so we also expect the scoreline to either end in a 1-0 win for Oviedo or a 1-1 draw if Ponferradine manage to equalize. Nonetheless, this should end in an under 2.5 goals margin.

Ponferradina Team News

Ponferradina's problems, as mentioned before, have been their lack of goals. They lack a potent 20-goal striker in their lineup, and it is reflected in their statistics as the home side has three top goal-scorers with a low return right now. The most commendable out of the three is midfielder Daniel Ojeda, with four goals and assists to his tally. Ojeda is well supported by his midfield compatriot, Kelechi Nwakali, with 1.6 key passes made every game. Defender Ricardo Pujol is one of the best defenders in the tournament with an average of 2 interceptions every 90 minutes.

Players to watch: Ricardo Pujol, Daniel Ojeda, Kelechi Nwakali

Left-back Daniel Patino was shown a red card against Granada, but with the suspension served in the next Copa del Rey game, Patino will be available for selection in this game. Like Ponferradina, Oviedo has also concentrated more on their defence rather than attacking at every opportunity. The only better thing, which keeps them above their counterparts on the league table, is the proper execution of their game plans. Oviedo's best-rated players are thus goalkeeper Quentin Braat and defensive duo, Carlos Rayo and Dani Calvo. While Braat has one of the best save percentages in La Liga 2, Rayo and Calvo have a combined interception rate of more than 3.5 key passes of the opponent, every 90 minutes.

Players to watch: Quentin Braat, Carlos Rayo, Dani Calvo
