Odds: 1.62

On May 20, 2024, Espanyol will face Oviedo in the 40th round of Spain's Segunda Division. Both clubs are currently in the playoff zone and are still hopeful of securing the second place, which would grant them direct promotion to La Liga.

Key Statistics and Trends:

  • Espanyol: Undefeated in 11 consecutive matches, though 9 of these ended in draws.
  • Oviedo: Won their last two matches in Segunda without conceding a goal.
  • Espanyol: Scored 22% of their goals between the 46th and 60th minutes.
  • Oviedo: Scored 33% of their goals between the 76th and 90th minutes.

Espanyol - Form Analysis: Attempting a Swift Return to La Liga

The "Parakeets" have significant ambitions. However, they have become somewhat of a "yo-yo" club, as they were relegated from La Liga again last year. At this lower level, the Catalan side performs well but their tendency towards drawing matches could hinder their promotion prospects. Their recent 0-0 draw with Valladolid marked their fifth consecutive draw and the ninth in their last 11 matches. Despite their unbeaten streak, this could jeopardize their position in the top six.

Oviedo - Form Analysis: Gaining Momentum at the Crucial Moment

The "Carbayones" narrowly missed out on the playoff spots last season, finishing eighth. This season seemed to be heading the same way, especially after earning only one point from three matches in mid-April. However, they have since secured two crucial victories. First, they won 2-0 away at Huesca, followed by a last-minute goal from Zurawski against Zaragoza at home, securing a 1-0 win. This propelled them to fifth place in the current standings.
