Sporting Gijon started the season well, but the light died down after just 3 games into this season. They have since been on the receiving end, losing week in week out.
Sporting Gijon managed a win over bottom placed Osasuna 2 weeks ago, both they went back to losing ways last weekend as they lost 2-1 at Espanyol. They are in 18th position with 12 points, same points as Valencia above the drop zone. A win in this game could lift them of the zone depending on other result.
Meanwhile, Villarreal are also desperate for a win just like their host. They are on the 4th spot and are on same point (26) as Real Sociedad in 5th place. They may slip out of the 4th spot should they fail to win this game
