Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Las Palmas, Sporting Gijon will be aiming to retain their spot in top six when they take on Fuenlabrada at Estadio Fernando Torres. The Lions are determined to book their place in the playoffs, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field in Monday’s clash. Uros Djurdjevic, who scored the winner in the midweek clash, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Fuenla, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table ahead of the penultimate game of the season. Considering that the hosts suffered a loss in each of their previous three league fixtures, we are tempted to put our money on Sporting Gijon, who are eyeing promotion to the Spanish top flight. Fuenlabrada boss Jose Luis Oltra is likely to continue with his rotation policy in the season finale.
