Real Oviedo 3  Elche 0

This really ended up being something of a mismatch as the Ilicitanos tried to be a like a boxer on the ropes looking for one counter-punch that bring their opponent down, but it wasn’t to be, as the promotion-chasing home side struck three times in the last fifteen minutes.

Elche certainly seemed content to try and get and a point and top striker Sergio León cut something of a lonely figure as he frustratingly waited for something to get his teeth into. As soon as Oviedo took the lead in the 76th minute, plans were torn up, and there were more defensive holes to plunder, as the home side scored twice more to make things look straight-forward at the end.

The Ilicitanos lie 10th in the table, and have a good chance to get things back on the road as they entertain bottom side Llagostera tomorrow afternoon.
