Real Oviedo rounded off their home domestic league fixtures with a hard fought 2-1 win over Somozas after coming from a goal behind in front of just over 27,000 fans at the Carlos Tartiere. The fans were here in a party mood to celebrate the league title.

Despite having won the league title last week coach Sergio Egea named a very strong line as he looked to move into the play-off with momentum and not wanting to take his side’s foot off the pedal.

The Blues started the game on the front foot and were first to threaten through chances inside the first ten minutes for Jon Erice and Linares, but neither player hit the target with their efforts. Somozas were not here to join in the party though and were aiming to impress on the big stage. Heber had their first effort on the twenty-minute mark but his left-footed effort was comfortable for Esteban.

Linares then had a golden chance for Oviedo after a great through ball from Héctor Font, but Marc in the Somozas goal had read the situation and came out well to save Linares’ effort. Los Carbayones were made to rue this miss though and on 27 minutes the visitors took the lead. David Fernández made a mistimed challenge in the box and the visitors were awarded a spot kick. Edgar stepped up and dispatched it perfectly into the top right-hand corner.

Oviedo were not going to lie down though and let this set back affect them as they continued to attack and create chances. Linares had another chance, this time after Valle’s left wing cross. Top scorer Linares deflected the header towards the bottom corner, but Marc saved again. The Blues were pushing forward more and creating more as the half went on. Borja Valle was next to go close after the visitors failed to clear a corner. His effort went just over the bar, but Oviedo proved why they are champions as they kept going and their patience finally paid off a minute before the interval. Héctor Font chipped a ball into the box which was only half cleared to the edge of the box and there was Omgba to volley into the top corner for a sublime goal. It was a fantastic finish and great technique from a player who we are now aware has a wonder goal in his locker.

Amazingly we nearly went into the break ahead as there was still time for Jonathan Vila to have an effort cleared off the line as Somozas were eagerly wanting the half time whistle to sound so they could re-group.

The second half got under way and it was played at a more pedestrian pace than the first half. It took until 15 minutes before a chance of any note and it came from a free kick. Dani Bautista tried his luck from 25 yards but Marc was there again to avert the danger. Real Oviedo were still pressing despite the rapid pace of the first half dying down a touch and midway through the second half got their noses in front.

Johannesson’s run led to the ball being played to Bautista, whose effort was blocked only for the ball to fall to Jon Erice, who tucked the ball away with a neat finish from ten yards. It was his first league goal of the season and well deserved after some impressive displays recently.

The ground was in full party mood now with the fans in fine voice. Somozas were doing their best to try and spoil the party though and Stefan really should have equalised on 75 minutes but blazed his effort over when well placed inside the penalty area. They were finishing the game the stronger of the two sides and to their frustration had two goals ruled out for offside. Further proof it was to be Real Oviedo’s day came in the final minute when Alejandro nearly equalised but somehow volleyed wide from a free kick into the box.

The full time whistle sounded and Oviedo had won again and moved to 80 points for the season. The players did a lap of honour for the fans knowing the next time we play at the Carlos Tartiere is for the ultimate prize: The championship play-off.

Next week we complete our regular fixtures with a trip to Galicia to face Coruxo.
