Our match prediction:
Having shared the spoils with Levante at Estadio Ciudad de Valencia on Monday evening, Sporting Gijon will be looking to start a new winning run in La Liga when they host Celta Vigo at their Estadio Municipal El Molinon. Los Rojiblancos are sitting in the relegation zone ahead of the visit of Os Celeste, but a win over Eduardo Berizzo’s troops could see them move away from bottom three. Coach Abelardo, who was born and raised in Gijon, can count on all of his first-team regulars for the game against Celta Vigo and seeing that Sunday’s football match is of big importance for the relegation strugglers, we predict that the hosts will return to winning ways on Matchday 32. Celta Vigo conceded 17 goals in last five away matches and, taking everything into account, the Galicians are unlikely to spoils Sporting Gijon’s party at “El Molinon”.
