Barcelona vs Sporting Gijon Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Barcelona managed to negotiate a tough encounter against Atletico Madrid quite successfully after managing a 2-1 win. Following a goalless first half, defender Rafinha came up with the opening goal in the 64th minute. However, Atletico Madrid were back to level just six minutes later through Diego Godin. Lionel Messi, though, had the final say after scoring with only four minutes of normal time remaining to give Barcelona an important victory. Sporting Gijon moved further close to safety after a 1-1 draw with Celta de Vigo. Moi Gomez opened the scoring through a penalty in the 49th minute. However, Celta’s top scorer Iago Aspas scored in the 75th minute to deny Sporting Gijon three points.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Barcelona appear to have put behind their recent wobbles after managing four consecutive league wins. It is highly likely that the team will be motivated than ever before, as the prospect of catching Real Madrid has now become a reality. Barcelona have a 16-2 aggregate score against Sporting Gijon in the games at the Camp Nou. I would expect this extraordinary run to continue. Barcelona have scored over 3.5 goals in just two of the last seven home matches. I see a lot of value in backing the Catalan club to score under 3.5 goals.

Messi has failed to score in just two of his last seven games. I would back Messi to score anytime in the match.

Barcelona to score under 3.5 goals – 1/1

Lionel Messi to score anytime – 1/4

Barcelona Preview

Barcelona have renewed title hopes after watching Real Madrid suffer a shock defeat against Valencia in the midweek action. The Catalan club remain one-point behind the table leaders, who can potentially create only a four-point advantage. Barcelona have not been entirely convincing of late and had to rely upon Lionel Messi’s magic in the weekend’s action against Atletico Madrid. Barcelona may rank sixth in the La Liga purely on home form, but four consecutive wins at the Camp Nou have once again restored the confidence. Barcelona have taken more points than any other La Liga team in the last six matches.

Sporting Gijon Preview

Sporting Gijon may have secured just two wins since December 2016, but relegation rivals failing to pick up points is helping the club rise close towards safety. A key towards this improved form has been down to the attack. Sporting Gijon have failed to score only once in the last seven league matches. Away form has been the biggest problem for the club, but the recent win over Leganes brought an end to over a year’s wait for an away win. On loan forward Lacina Traore has become the first choice forward, but he has not scored in the last three games.
