Our match prediction:
Sporting Gijon and Rayo Vallecano take on each other at Estadio Municipal El Molinon in the opening match of day 24 of the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign. Following back-to-back wins over Real Sociedad and Valencia, los Rojiblancos shared the spoils with Deportivo La Coruna at the weekend. The newcomers escaped the relegation zone, but seeing that they are just two points clear of the bottom three, Friday’s clash against fellow relegation strugglers is of big importance for the hosts. The capital club head into the match following a 2-0 win over Las Palmas and they will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to five matches in La Liga when they square off against Sporting Gijon at El Molinon. Both sides aim to remain undefeated in February and we believe that both Sporting and Rayo would be happy with one point from the game. Los Vallecanos recorded a 2-1 win over Abelardo’s team in the reverse fixture in the suburbs of Madrid.
