2-9-2 (win-draw-lost) are the La Liga 2 numbers at home for Fuenlabrada so far this season. Fuenlabrada are slowly digging their own grave here at Estadio Fernando Torres with the depressing streak of not having won a home league game in eleven attempts. The last victory here came in the Albacete match.

The spoils were shared in Fuenlabrada's previous game, also at home. Visiting Real Oviedo (placed 15th) travelled back with a draw after a 2-2 scoreline. Before that match, a win away at Castellón.

The hometeam coach J. Oltra Castañer made a successful contribution in the game against Real Oviedo, bringing on Borja Garcés who scored the equalizer in the 2-2 draw.

This is expected to be a close game, with Fuenlabrada perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage.
