Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Struggling Deportivo La Coruna will be looking to restart the season in style when they take on Sporting Gijon at Estadio Abanca-Riazor. Deportivo are on a quest to bring glory days back to Riazor, but, as thing stand now, they would be happy if they manage to secure the Segunda Division survival. Victor Mollejo misses the match through suspension, and, in his absence, Sabin Merino is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
Sporting Gijon, on the other hand, aim to move a little closer to the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Sunday’s football match. Los Rojiblancos aim to build on a pre-corona win over Las Palmas, and given Deportivo’s shaky defence, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the visiting team. Miroslav Djukic is doing a good job with Sporting, and the good news for the Serbian tactician is that Molinero has overcome his injury.
