Sporting Gijon vs Real Betis
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 20th May 2017
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Estadio El Molinon, Gijon.
Sporting Gijon welcome Real Betis in La Liga’s insignificant clash since the hosts have been relegated last weekend despite they managed to outplay Eibar.
The guests are safe from the relegation and their form decline certainly proves it since Betis are without a win in the last 4 La Liga outings.
Gijon suffered a heart-breaking relegation after Deportivo’s stalemate in Villarreal. The hosts could break even with Deportivo points-wise, but that won’t be enough since goal difference heavily favors La Coruna.
The future Segunda members have shown great team spirit and devotion in the last two rounds when points were needed the most. They managed to beat Las Palmas and Eibar, respectively, with the same result of minimal 1-0. However, it wasn’t enough and unfortunately, Sporting Gijon will play in lower tier next season.
Since securing top-flight survival the team in green-white jerseys has shown no interest. Regardless of their situation, they managed to steal a point against Atletico Madrid last weekend as their encounter ended 1-1.
Betis are in visible and expected form decline – in the last four La Liga games, they were beaten three times in addition to the recent draw. Betis won only four away games this season, while they only drew one game on the road.
