Our football match prediction:
Sporting Gijon desperately needed a win against Las Palmas at the weekend and they managed to beat los Amarillos at home ground thanks to Carlos Carmona’s goal. Los Rojiblancos are desperate to secure yet another La Liga survival, but they need to pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match against Eibar if they are to keep their hopes of avoiding the drop to Segunda Division alive. Los Armeros have been producing splendid performances in the Spanish top flight this season and they will finish the season in the top half of table. However, considering that they have nothing to play for in Sunday’s game against the relegation strugglers, we are tempted to put our money on the away team this time out. You should bear in mind that Sporting Gijon are after their first win over Eibar on the road since 2008, when the two teams met in the Spanish second tier.
