Sporting Gijon vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 15th January 2017
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: El Molinon, Gijon.
Eibar looked much better in the first part of the season which is why we see a decent value in the 7/4 odds given by the bookies on the away win here. Sporting Gijon have had a lot of troubles in December which resulted with the drop to the red zone. The team did not start the New Year in a much better way either as they failed to cause any troubles to Las Palmas on Canaria Islands last weekend.
Eibar, on the other hand, had a strong end of the last year. The team led by Mendilibar is currently holding the 10th position, which is way above their expectations. Los Armeros opened the New Year in a terrific way outscoring Osasuna with 0 – 3 away from home thanks to goals from Nano, Bebe and Adrian. Mendilibar saw his lads dropping points against Atletico Madrid in the 17th round of Primeira last weekend, even though they were the better side on the pitch.
Sporting Gijon vs Eibar: Head-to-Head Stats
The teams played H2H a couple of weeks ago in Copa del rey when Eibar came out victorious winning both games (3-1 and 1-2). Sporting are better historically by a single win, but we believe that Eibar have the capacity and the right fo9rm to make it all square to 10 wins each in the head to head record.
Sporting Gijon vs Eibar: Prediction
There is absolutely no reason to avoid the away win bets here. The visitors are playing in a much better shape recently and they have won each of the two Copa del Rey clash just weeks ago. The double chance bet on Eibar seems to be a banker and we’d advise you to take the 4/9 odds with higher stake. The more adventurous punters will surely go for the clear away win at 17/10.
