Our football match prediction:
Las Palmas failed to spoil Atletico Madrid’s party at Estadio Vicente Calderon in their last league fixture in 2016. Los Amarillos suffered a 1-0 loss to Diego Simeone’s team in the capital of Spain, but they remained in the top half of the standings. Las Palmas aim to finish the season in top ten, but they do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of Sporting Gijon. Quique Setien’s troops are on a three-match winless run in the league and that is the main reason why home win should not be considered this time out. Sporting Gijon are fighting hard to secure yet another top flight survival and they are desperate to grab something from Saturday’s football game against Las Palmas. Considering that los Amarillos have been struggling to find their best form, share of spoils appears on the horizon in this one.
