Oviedo vs Villarreal B – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

Oviedo and Villarreal B cannot be separated in the Segunda League standings with the pair locked side by side in 13th and 14th respectively with 31 points apiece. Will there be any separating them in this meeting? Find out with our Oviedo vs Villarreal B preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Oviedo to win

Our first prediction for this game sees us backing Oviedo to beat Villarreal B. Although there isn’t masses between the sides in the league table, that isn’t true of recent form – particularly where you hone in on respective home and away results. Oviedo have won three of their last four home games losing just one of five whilst Villarreal B by contrast have lost three of their last five on road. It doesn’t exactly point to a decent result for the visitors, does it?

Over 1.5 goals

Our next tip for this game comes from the total goals market and we are opting for an over 1.5 goals prediction. Oviedo have gone over that 1.5 threshold in three of their last four games racking up a game average of 2.3 goals across that period. Villarreal B have shattered that 1.5 marker in recent weeks as well; they’ve had four of their past five games go north of that cut off but with a game average of 3.2 goals. With the reverse fixture earlier this season seeing a total of three goals as well, going over 1.5 goals seems wise!

Expect a first half goal

We end our tips for this game by betting on at least one goal being scored in the first half of the match. Oviedo have seen four of their last five matches feature goals within the first 45 minutes. Villarreal B meanwhile have also seen plenty of first half goals in recent weeks; only one of their last five games have seen things goalless at the interval. With all of that in mind, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the net bulge inside the first half!

Oviedo vs Villarreal B: Team News

Oviedo

Oviedo might sit in the bottom half of the Segunda Division standings but their defensive record is amongst the best in the league. It will play an important role in this game too with Dani Calvo a vital figure at the back. It is, however, worth noting that Lusimi was red carded last time out and is therefore out of this fixture.

Alvaro Cervera´s Team Updates:

The Blues made some additions this week to strengthen the squad. One of them was striker Manu Vallejo who arrives on loan from first-division side Girona. Real Oviedo will be able to exercise the option to buy if they win the promotion. Raul Moro arrives on loan from Lazio and will be competing for a place in the attacking line. The team also decided to go for the young Mangel and extended his contract until 2026. Cerveras will decide if any of these players will make their debut against Villarreal B.

Villarreal B

Villarreal B has the exact opposite problem as their hosts. They score a hatful of goals but can’t keep their back door shut with a very much leaky defence. With that in mind, they’ll be desperate for Sergio Lozano and Diego Collado, who have both been with the first team squad in recent weeks, are made available for this game.

Miguel Alvarez Jurado´s Team Update:

One of the good news for Miguel Alvarez Jurado’s team is the return of Alberto del Moral and De la Fuente, who were the only absentees. Now the whole squad will be available. Sergio Lozano will be one of the most dangerous players, the 23 year old scored 5 goals and assisted 4 times this season.
