Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Valencia will host the 22nd round of the Primera Division against Sporting Gijon in the Mestalla Stadium on Sunday afternoon. In their last game Valencia was unable to beat Deportivo la Coruna, the game end in a disappointing 1-1 draw and brings Valencia in a even worse situation. Los Che are currently placed 11th on the table having 25 points out of the first 21 games and didn't win any of their last 10 games in the Primera Division; the last victory was on the 7th of November 2015. Sporting Gijon on the other hand is placed 19th on the table and is in the zone to be relegated to the Segunda Division but despite their bad streak Sporting Gijon managed to beat Real Sociedad in their last game 5-1. The first game between Valencia and Sporting Gijon this season end in a 0-1 victory for Valencia. We predict a 1-1 draw between Valencia and Sporting Gijon. Valencia is performing without any form of confidence, with manager Gary Neville every opponent in the Primera Division is a difficult one.
