Our match prediction:
Estadio Municipal El Molinon will host Sunday’s game between Sporting Gijon and Villarreal. Los Rojiblancos are desperate to avoid relegation and, no doubt, the hosts will fight tooth and nail in order to pick up vital three points from the last match of the season. The Yellow Submarine have already secured their place in the Champions League qualifiers and considering that the visitors have nothing to play for on the last day of the season, there is every chance they will return home empty-handed. Coach Marcelino rested a number of first-team regulars in a 2-0 loss to Deportivo La Coruna and there is every chance he will mix the squad against Sporting Gijon as well. Taking everything into account, we predict that the relegation-threatened hosts will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football match. In their last meeting at “El Molinon” Sporting Gijon recorded a 2-0 win over Villarreal (Segunda Division).
