Sporting Gijon vs Las Palmas
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 6th May April 2017
Kick off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal El Molinon.
The home fixture with Las Palmas will be the last train to catch for Sporting Gijon.
The hosts are six points below safety and it is more than clear that they need the victory to keep any kind of chances with three games left to play until the end of the season.
Joan Rubi does not hide the optimism even though his team failed to pick up a single victory in last seven matches in Primera Division.
Sporting do not have troubles finding the net, but the fact they have been very easy to break down is what stops them from getting the much-wanted breakthrough.
Speaking of the troubles in the defense, we can’t skip to mention Las Palmas who definitely have one of the weakest defensive lines in the competition.
The Canaries have been horrific in the most recent period as they lost back-to-back games to Leganes and Atletico Madrid with the total goal difference of 0-8.
Sporting Gijon vs Las Palmas: Head to head
The head to head stats are absolutely on Las Palmas’ side as they suffered no more than four losses in 24 games with Sporting Gijon.
The Canaries took a narrow 1-0 win on the home court back at the start of the year when the two sides took on each other in the first part of the season.
Sporting Gijon vs Las Palmas: Prediction
The hosts are in a must-win situation and they have just the perfect opponent for such an imperative.
We expect to see yet another high-scoring affair because none of the two sides play defense at all.
