The upcoming Segunda Division playoff semi-final second leg between Eibar and Real Oviedo promises an exciting encounter with high stakes.

Eibar will host Real Oviedo at the Estadio Municipal de Ipurua on Wednesday, and both teams are vying for a coveted spot in the playoff final. Here's a detailed preview of the match, including predictions, team news, and current form.

Match Preview

Eibar's Home Advantage

Eibar, participating in their third consecutive playoff campaign, finished the regular season in third position with 71 points from 42 matches. Their recent playoff performances have been disappointing, as they failed to advance past the semi-finals in the last two seasons.

However, Eibar holds the advantage this time after securing a goalless draw in the first leg at Real Oviedo's home ground.

Eibar's home form has been formidable, with the team winning their last six home matches since their defeat to Burgos in March.

Their confidence will be bolstered by a recent 4-3 victory over Real Oviedo on the final day of the regular season, marking their fourth consecutive home win against Oviedo.

Real Oviedo's Challenge

Real Oviedo, seeking to return to La Liga for the first time since the 2001-02 season, finished sixth in the Segunda Division thanks to their head-to-head record over Racing Santander.

The Asturian side has struggled with consistency, especially in away games, winning only three of their last nine road trips.

Historical Context

Eibar has an impressive record against Real Oviedo in home fixtures, remaining unbeaten in their last nine competitive meetings.

Oviedo's last away win against Eibar dates back to November, which could be a psychological hurdle for the visitors.

Team News

Eibar

Eibar is likely to field a consistent lineup, with key players Stoichkov and Ager Aketxe leading the attack.

Jon Bautista remains doubtful due to a muscle injury. Coach Joseba Etxeberria might stick with the same team that performed well in the first leg.

Real Oviedo

Prediction

Eibar's home dominance and strong form make them the favourites to progress to the final.

Real Oviedo will need to overcome significant challenges to secure a victory. Given Eibar's second-best home record in the league.
