Real Oviedo came up against Real Valladolid today in Matchday 7 in LaLiga Hypermotion. 17,000 supporters were present at the Carlos Tartiere for Luis Carrión's first match in charge of Los Azules. The new Head Coach opted for a starting eleven made up of Leo Román, Abel Bretones, Dani Calvo, David Costas, Oier Luengo, Colombatto, Jimmy, Sebas, Viti, Seoane and Borja Bastón.
Both sides were in need of the points today in Asturias, with Real Oviedo and Real Valladolid's mutual desire to get the win clear from the first moment. Los Azules looked to dominate from the outset, seeking to get on top in attacking areas. The new coach's ideas were apparent, with proof of them on display during certain moments of the opening forty-five minutes. A spectacular Colombatto free kick went close to providing one of the goals of the weekend, but he was denied by a fine save. The visitors threatened more during the final stages of the first half, but the score remained 0-0 at the interval.
Real Oviedo grew during the second half, and Luis Carrión would eventually start to make changes. Paulino de la Fuente came on in place of Moyano, before Masca replaced Jimmy shortly afterwards. In the 75th minute Bastón went close to opening the scoring from a Viti cross, but his effort deflected off a defender for a corner. Los Carbayones pushed forward in the closing minutes, before the match came to a cruel end.
Marcos André curled home an unstoppable effort from outside the area in injury time, which Leo Román could do nothing about, to make the score 1-0 to Real Valladolid. In the final passage of play, David Costas met a loose ball inside the area, but his effort struck the post.
The first-team squad will return to training at 10:30 tomorrow, as preparations begin for the fixture against Eldense.
