Our football match prediction:
Osasuna failed to put an end to their three-match losing run in La Liga, with the team suffering a 3-0 loss to Atletico Madrid in front of home fans. Los Rojillos, though, missed a penalty against los Rojiblancos and that is probably the main reason why they suffered their eighth defeat of the season. Osasuna are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Gijon and we do not believe that they are capable of putting an end to their three-match losing run in the Spanish top flight. Sporting Gijon produced a promising display in a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid at the weekend and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match against Osasuna. Sporting Gijon are eyeing their third home win of the season and they are likely to emerge triumphant in the relegation six-pointer against Joaquin Caparros’ charges.
Highligted Player (Nacho Cases):
After making 71 appearances for Sporting B between 2005 and 2011, Nacho Cases started playing for the first team on 9 January 2011, making his debut in a 1-1 draw with Racing Santander. The Spanish footballer plays as a midfielder and he was born on 22 December, 1987 in Gijon. He played probably the best match of his career against Real Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on 2 April, 2011 as he provided an assist for Miguel de las Cuevas, who scored the winner ten minutes before the end (1-0). Nacho Cases used to play for the like of Codema and Revillagigedo during his youth career, but he played for his current club as a boy as well. Cases was with his family in Paris during terror attacks in November 2011 and the Spanish embassy helped him return to his homeland. The midfielder scored one goal in 24 league appearances for Sporting Gijon in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign.
Highlighted Team (Osasuna):
Osasuna are a Basque football team that plays in Spanish La Liga. Los Rojillos are based in Pamplona and and the club were founded in 1920. Estadio El Sadar has been the home of Osasuna since 1967 and the capacity of the stadium is 19,800. The colour of Osasuna’s home kit is red, while the team’s shorts are navy blue. Los Rojillos dropped to the Segunda Division at the end of the 2013/2014 La Liga campaign, but they did not spend too many time in the Spanish second tier. The club returned to the elite division in 2016 after beating Girona in the play-offs. Osasuna made it to the Spanish Copa del Rey final in 2005, but they eventually lost to Real Betis after extra time in the title game. The meaning of the word Osasuna is “health” in Basque and it is used in a sense of strength.
