Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Castellon will be looking to make amend for a 2-0 loss to Espanyol when they host Sporting Gijon at their Estadio Municipal de Castalia on Sunday evening. Castellon’s main goal is to secure the La Liga 2 survival, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to meet the goal. The manager-less hosts are low on confidence following back-to-back defeats to Tenerife and Espanyol, and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from the match.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, aim to move a little closer to automatic promotion places, and they should take advantage of the current situation in the home team’s dressing room. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Uros Djurdjevic, who scored a brace in the 2-1 win over Fuenlabrada.

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.
