Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After shocking Real Zaragoza at Estadio la Romareda, Alcorcon will be looking to move closer to the playoffs berth when they take on Sporting Gijon at Estadio Santo Domingo. Alcorcon bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Mirandes, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure a top-six finish. Los Alfareros have been scoring goals for fun in the second half of the season, and given the atmosphere in their dressing room, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
Sporting Gijon, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Deportivo La Coruna in their first game after the coronavirus football break. Los Rojiblancos often struggle on the travels, and even though there will be no spectators at Estadio Santo Domingo, we are tempted to put our money on the home side this time out.

Highlighted Team (Gijon):
Sporting Gijon are a Spanish football club that competes in La Liga. Sporting Gijon’s home ground is El Molinon, the stadium that was built in 1908. El Molinon is the oldest football field in Spain and the capacity of the stadium is 30,000. Sporting Gijon’s home kit is red and white and the club’s main rivals are Real Oviedo.
The two teams take on each other in the Asturian derby. Sporting Gijon did remarkably well to finish the 1978/1979 La Liga campaign in second position in the standings and that is considered the club’s biggest success. Los Rojiblancos were runners-up in Spanish Copa Del Rey in 1981 and 1982, but they have yet to win the Spanish Cup.
The club was founded in 1905 and the club’s original name was Sporting Gijones. Sporting Gijon participated in the UEFA Cup on six occasions, but they did not record a good result in the European competition.
