Our football match prediction:
Situation at Estadio Municipal El Molinon is alarming ahead of the visit of Las Palmas. Los Rojiblancos sit in the relegation zone and they are six points behind 17th-placed Leganes, who are safe for now. Sporting Gijon suffered a 3-1 loss to Villarreal in their last league match and it has to be noted that they recorded only one victory in previous 13 games in the Spanish elite division. Rubi’s men are low on confidence ahead of Saturday’s football match against Las Palmas, but, no doubt, they will leave their hearts on the field. Los Amarillos have already secured the top flight survival and seeing that they have little to play for against los Rojiblancos, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at Estadio Municipal El Molinon Sporting Gijon recorded a 3-1 win over Las Palmas and the history is likely to repeat itself.
