With Sporting Gijon’s poor form, it will be hard for them to beat Eibar at their home ground. They will be low in confidence having been on the receiving end for long.
Eibar haven’t been superb either but they are far better off than their visitors. It won’t be an easy game for them but we expect them to come out winners in the game
