Celta Vigo vs Sporting Gijon
Spanish La Liga 2016/17
Date: Wednesday, 21 September 2016
Kick-Off: 19:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Balaidos, Vigo.
It is quite a disappointing start to the season for Celta Vigo as they are yet to win a game and found themselves at the foot of the league table. They suffered three consecutive defeats, which somehow came to end this weekend due to Osasuna’s inability to take their chances. They also failed to score in three of their four matches so far.
Sporting Gijon will be very satisfied in how they started their new season. They took two wins and a draw before comprehensively defeated by Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon in the weekend. Gijon will go into this match with good morale and confidence, which will be further boosted by their opposition’s poor run of form.
