Sporting Gijon is yet another team that finds themselves in a must-win situation this Sunday as they look to snatch away the last spot in the promotion playoffs on the final matchday when they come head to head against the already promotion-playoff qualified UD Almeria at El Molinon with kickoff at 22:00.
Gijon need to keep their current form and confidence as they head in tomorrow’s match and hope that their rivals Rayo Vallecano will drop points in their game against Lugo and we predict that the hosts will prevail given their home record this season: 11-7-2. Also, when playing at home Gijon have to lost in their last eight encounters against Almeria.
Meanwhile the visitors have already secured a place in the promotion play-offs next week and will only be looking to keep their place and hope for a kinder opponent in the playoffs.
The last time these two met the home team prevailed by a 1-0 at away and it most likely might happen again in this one.
