Our football match prediction:
Sevilla will be aiming to put an end to their four-game winless run in all competitions when they host Sporting Gijon at their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Los Sevillanos suffered elimination in the Champions League knockout stages, meaning that they will be fully focused on the national championship in the remainder of the season. Key midfielder Vitolo has overcome his injury and he will be the man to watch in the home team in Sunday’s football game against Sporting Gijon. This has to go down as a must-win game for Jorge Sampaoli’s troops as they are eyeing a place in the Champions League and we predict that the hosts will leave their hearts on the field this time out. Sporting Gijon are not regarded as good travelers and it has to be noted that the relegation strugglers have recorded only one win on the road this season. Taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Samir Nasri):
Samir Nasri is a French footballer who plays for Manchester City. The former Arsenal man used to play for Marseille in the past and he began his youth career at Pennes Mirabeau in 1995. Nasri is an attacking midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a winger as well. The France international was born on 26 June, 1987 in Septemes-les-Vallons, the suburbs of Marseille. He is 175 cm tall and it has to be noted that his parents are Algerian. Samir Nasri has won two Premier League trophies with Manchester City, but he was not as successful during his spell with Arsenal. It is well known that Arsenal fans were angry with Nasri when he signed a four-year contract with Manchester City in 2011. The transfer fee was in the region of £25 million. The French footballer has 41 caps for the national team, but he retired from international football on 9 August, 2014.
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.
