Sporting Gijon vs Osasuna
Spain – Segunda Division
Date: Friday, 8th February 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estadio El Molinón (Gijón).
If you think that Premier League offers the best competition between teams, you are really in for a surprise when the Segunda Division comes to town. The top three teams are stranded on same points, and the top five are separated by just two. Beat that, English fans.
Gorritxoak cannot afford to take a break from this demanding schedule. They are on the road against Jose Alberto’s men, and have no other go but to go for the win in this tie. The good news is, the team is in good spirits considering the spectacular form they have been in the recent weeks. The bad news is, they have recorded a win here.
The Rojiblancos need to put in solid displays if they hope to be a part of the top division once more. As things stand, their recent form is not up to the mark with their ambitions. And they are hosting a team in contention for the league title.

- The Red-and-Whites failed to score in their last two ties.

- Jose Alberto’s men have scored in every single one of their home-ties.
Sporting Gijon vs Osasuna Prediction
Los Rojillos would bleed for this win, but there’s a catch. The team has never won a game at the Estadio El Molinón. Though the visitors have been performing very well this season and are a clear favorite for direct promotion, their history at this venue is too much to handle along with the pressure.
The team from Asturias knows this, and will cleverly incorporate it into their match-tactics. Moreover, they also have the confidence of breaching the visiting defense in every single h2h tie here.
JagobaArrasate would not let his hard work go to waste by losing this game. But I don’t think the team is equipped to go against a two-decade history and record a win here.
A draw is the most likely result. And since, most games between them have ended with below three goals, and the hosts have found the back of the net in all their h2h appearances here, logic dictates a 1-1 scoreline as the final whistle blows.
