Sporting Gijon vs Leganes: Match Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips

Sporting Gijon vs Leganes
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 11 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 11:00 UK
Venue: El Molinon, Gijon.

Sporting Gijon head coach Abelardo Fernandez will be particularly happy after seeing his side 4 points from the opening two matches of the new season. A surprise 2-1 home win against Atletico Bilbao is backed up with a goal less draw at the newly promoted Alaves before going into the international break. Gijon narrowly escaped relegation last season. The squad is further weakened in the summer with many of their first team players moving to other clubs. But such a good start will boost the morale and confidence for the coming encounters.

Both sides are coming into this match on a similar kind of form and are high on confidence. But Gijon’s strong home record against Leganes has to be highlighted here and they will definitely go into this match as favorites.

The match is expected to see few goals as both teams are short of quality players in the attacking unit. So under 2.5 goals is a good bet for this match. I will be also backing the correct score of 1-0 win for the home, which is priced at
