In 1983 Oviedo joined Independiente, helping the team to win the Metropolitano 1983 championship in his first season with the club and the Copa Libertadores in his second season.

In 1986 Oviedo returned to Talleres but after one season in Córdoba he moved back to Buenos Aires to play for Deportivo Armenio he stayed with the club between 1987 and 1992 despite their relegation from the Primera in 1989.
