Our football match prediction:
Following a thrilling 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid footballers gave fans yet another reason for celebration in midweek as they outplayed Sporting Lisbon in Tuesday’s football match. Los Blancos are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Sporting Gijon and seeing that Karim Benzema should recover in time to face los Rojiblancos at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, we predict that the Spanish giants are going to extend their winning run in all competitions to four games. Real Madrid are desperate to put an end to Barcelona’s dominance in the Spanish elite division and, as always, only a win counts for Zinedine Zidane’s troops in this one. Sporting Gijon failed to record a win in previous nine league fixtures and they are unlikely to spoil Real Madrid’s party at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick against Atletico Madrid and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Highlighted Player (Benzema):
Striker Karim Benzema came through his youth club Bron Terraillon in Olympique Lyon were he went through all the youth teams. On January 15, 2005 Benzema made his debut for the first team of Lyon that season but did not have much playing time. In the 2007-2008 season he was indeed a permanent fixture in the team and he got his break . He grew that season right into a crowd favorite and clubs like Arsenal, Juventus, Manchester United, Real Madrid and AC Milan showed interest in him.Benzema in 2008 (like 2005, 2006, and 2007) was in the champions with Olympique Lyon and had no interest in leaving France. In 2008, Karim was named best French footballer.
Highlighted Team (Sporting Gijon):
Sporting Gijon are a Spanish football club that competes in La Liga. Sporting Gijon’s home ground is El Molinon, the stadium that was built in 1908. El Molinon is the oldest football field in Spain and the capacity of the stadium is 30,000. Sporting Gijon’s home kit is red and white and the club’s main rivals are Real Oviedo. The two teams take on each other in the Asturian derby. Sporting Gijon did remarkably well to finish the 1978/1979 La Liga campaign in second position in the standings and that is considered the club’s biggest success. Los Rojiblancos were runners-up in Spanish Copa del Rey in 1981 and 1982, but they have yet to win the Spanish Cup. The club was founded in 1905 and the club’s original name was Sporting Gijones. Sporting Gijon participated in the UEFA Cup on six occasions, but they did not record a good result in the European competition.
