Our match prediction:
Malaga and Sporting Gijon, the two out of form teams, take on each other at Estadio La Rosaleda on Matchday 29. Los Boquerones played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Deportivo at the weekend and they will be aiming to stop the run of five matches without a win when they take on Abelardo’s troops on Friday night. Sporting Gijon have been totally out of form of late as well and they are desperate to put an end to their three-match losing run in La Liga. The newcomers head into the match with the lack of confidence and given their poor away record, we predict that Abelardo’s men are going to return home empty-handed. Malaga chiefs added a number of high-profile players to the squad in the January transfer window and, taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon this time out.
