Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sporting Gijon play host to Real Oviedo at their Estadio El Molinon in what is expected to be a close Segunda Division encounter. Los Rojiblancos failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Ferrol and Zaragoza and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field this time out. Jose Angel serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards, while all Axel Bamba, Pablo Insua, and Giovanni Zarfino are sidelined with injuries.
Los Azules, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both Ferrol and Leganes, while sharing the spoils with Eldense. Oviedo are more of a team than Gijon and we predict that the visitors are going to showcase their worth on the field. Both Alex Millan and David Costas are major doubts, while the likes of Rodrigo Tarin, Mario Hernandez, and Luismi remain in the recovery room, speaking of the away team.
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.
