Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Following four consecutive league defeats, Villarreal B will be aiming to get back on course when they take on Sporting Gijon in the opening match of Sunday’s program. The Yellow Submarine are only six points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they are desperate to grab something from the round 39 clash. Midfielder Pablo Iniguez is sidelined with a groin problem, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Lugo. Since Gijon looked sharp in front of goal in the last league match, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. Midfielder Jonathan Varane is banned for the match following his sending off against Lugo, while both Pol Sancho and Nacho Mendez remain in the recovery room.
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.
