Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Monday’s football game at Estadio Municipal El Molinon pits together Sporting Gijon and Real Oviedo. Sporting Gijon have been impressive at the back of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive clean sheet in Segunda Division. Los Rojiblancos are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in the clash against Oviedo. Prolific Serbian attacker Uros Djurdjevic, who found the net in the 2-0 win over Alcorcon, is likely to prove a handful for Real Oviedo defenders.
Los Carbayones, on the other hand, aim to extend their unbeaten run in the Spanish second tier to five games. Jose Angel Ziganda’s troops aim to escape the relegation zone, but beating Sporting Gijon on the road is easier said than done. Given Oviedo’s form after the coronavirus break, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
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.
