Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Saturday’s football game at Estadio Las Gaunas pits together Logrones and Sporting Gijon. The newcomers have been completely unpredictable in the 2020/21 La Liga 2 season, with the team having their ups and downs. Logrones are on a three-game winless run in the league ahead of the visit of Sporting, and given the importance of the match for the visiting team, home win should not be considered.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, aim to cement their spot in top six, and they should take advantage of Logrones’ slow start to the year. Even though Aitor Garcia misses the match through suspension following his sending off in the goalless draw with Cartagena, we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing team. In the first half of the season Sporting Gijon defeated Logrones thanks to Uros Djurdjevic’s goal, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.

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.
