Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Eibar play host to Sporting Gijon at their Estadio Municipal de Ipurua on day 21 of the new La Liga 2 campaign. Los Armeros aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Alcorcon and their seven-game unbeaten run at home is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Sporting Gijon. Frederico Venancio suffered an injury in the last league match, while both Juan Berrocal and Yacine Qasmi are major doubts.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their three-game winless run. Sporting Gijon and Eibar seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. As for the away team, fit-again Roque Mesa should recover in time to face the Basques on Wednesday evening, while both Giovanni Zarfino and Axel Bamba remain in the recovery room.
