Our football match prediction:
Sporting Gijon will be looking to bounce back from a 4-1 loss to Atletico Madrid when they welcome Celta Vigo at their Estadio Municipal El Molinon. Los Rojiblancos aim to escape the relegation zone, but Sunday’s football match against Celta Vigo will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The relegation strugglers are on a four-game losing run at home ground and considering that they conceded eight goals in previous two home fixtures in the national championship, we are not tempted to put our money on the underdogs. Celta Vigo, on the other hand, recorded a routine 3-0 win over Osasuna at the weekend and thanks to the triumph the Galician outfit put an end to their three-match losing run in all competitions. Os Celeste do not want to stop now and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Sporting Gijon in Sunday’s clash.
