Leganes vs Sporting Gijon Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Leganes’ winless run stretched to nine games in the league after a 2-0 loss against Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone’s highly efficient team managed to score from both their shots on target. Fernando Torres scored in either half, while Antoine Griezmann missed a penalty. Sporting Gijon once again could not convert home support into an advantage, as Deportivo Alaves secured a 4-2 win at the El Molinon. Late goals from Lacina Traoré and Carlos Castro were unable to prevent a heavy defeat, as Alaves scored through Rubén Sobrino, Christian Santos, Edgar Mendez, and Alexis.

Leganes Preview

Leganes continue to be let down by their inability to score goals. As the lowest scoring team in the division with only 15 goals in the 21 league games, Leganes are aware of the incredible stress placed upon the defence. Leganes actually have a better defensive record among the current bottom five clubs – Valencia, Sporting Gijon, Granada, and Osasuna. Yet, Asier Garitano has seen his team score in one of the last five games. Incredibly, three of their four wins this season have come on the road, but they have been without a victory since November.

Sporting Gijon Preview

Unlike some of the other relegation threatened clubs, Sporting Gijon have been unable to draw games. The team has managed to take just six points in the last 15 games. It sees the club drop down the table quite drastically, while the threat of being cut off from safety grows. A five-point gap towards safety has emerged with the season just past the midway stage. Home form will be crucial if the club are to survive in the division, as the team has taken 70% of their points from the home matches.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Both teams will be keen on winning this six-pointer, and Sporting Gijon will be feeling confident with recent history on their side. Sporting Gijon have a 100% record in their last six visits to the Municipal de Butarque. Yet, Leganes have suffered just one loss in the last five league matches at home. Leganes also seem keen on doing extremely well in games against their direct rivals. Their last two victories have come against Osasuna and Granada. Since Sporting Gijon do not draw many games, I would go for a Leganes win.

Despite being at the bottom of the table, Leganes are one of the teams with a good defensive record. Just one of the last five games involving Leganes have witnessed more than 2.5 goals. Even though games involving Sporting Gijon do tend to produce over 2.5 goals, I would back the home team’s better defensive record to have a bigger say.
