Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
A highly-anticipated football game between Huesca and Gijon will close Sunday’s program in the La Liga 2 round 8. Los Azulgranas did well to beat Alcorcon on the road in their last league match, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Gijon. Barring any fresh injury concerns, Carlos Ziganda is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated los Alfareros.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, aim to extend their unbeaten run to five games. Sporting Gijon and Huesca 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, both Giovanni Zarfino and Axel Bamba are out of contention through injuries. You should bear in mind that the two teams have drawn each of their last four league matches.
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.
