Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sporting Gijon and Amorebieta square off against each other at Estadio El Molinon in the closing game of Saturday’s program. Los Rojiblancos are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win and their display in a 3-0 win over Villarreal B is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Amorebieta. Both Giovanni Zarfino and Axel Bamba are sidelined with injuries, but they should be the only absentees in the home team.
Los Azules, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team collecting only one point from the last five league matches. As Amorebieta have been struggling in front of goal of late, we predict that the in-form hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s encounter. Forward Iker Seguin is banned for the match, while both Eneko Jauregi and Xabier Etxeita will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
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.
