Our football match prediction:
As expected, Sporting Gijon suffered a heavy 5-1 loss to Barcelona at Camp Nou in Wednesday’s football match. Los Rojiblancos sit in bottom three in the La Liga standings, but a win over fellow relegation strugglers Deportivo La Coruna would see them climb to 17th position in the table. Sporting Gijon were on the verge of beating Celta Vigo in their last home fixture and they are definitely capable of winning the relegation six-pointer against the Galician outfit. Deportivo are on a three-game losing run on the road and considering that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Leganes, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed. When the two teams met at Estadio Municipal de Riazor in the reverse fixture los Branquiazuis emerged triumphant and we believe that Rubi’s men are capable of getting their revenge on the Galician side.
