Our football match prediction:
Estadio La Rosaleda will host the match between Malaga and Sporting Gijon. Los Boquerones failed to spoil Atletico Madrid’s party at Estadio Vicente Calderon (2-4) at the weekend, while los Rojiblancos did well to share the spoils with Sevilla in their last league fixture. Malaga continue with their habit of producing splendid displays at their Estadio La Rosaleda and it has to be noted that they are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home. The Andalusians defeated the likes of Eibar, Athletic Bilbao and Leganes in previous three home matches and seeing that Sporting Gijon are on a seven-match winless run in La Liga, we predict that Juande Ramos’ men are going to emerge triumphant in Friday’s football match. Former Barcelona man Sandro Ramirez scored in the 4-2 loss to Atletico Madrid and he is likely to lead the line for the hosts against Sporting Gijon.
