Sporting Gijon vs Reus
Spain – Segunda Division
Date: Saturday, 13 October 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Estadio Municipal El Molinon (Gijon).
Sporting Gijon have seen their woes away from home continue at Rayo Majadahonda last week and their third consecutive loss in league trips, which still sees them hovering in the mid-table. However, they’ve been a better side at Estadio Municipal El Molinon and host Reus Deportiu hoping to show off once again!
Gijon have earned ten of their 11 points at this ground and we’ve seen them beat Gimnastic Tarragona, Extremadura UD, and Las Palmas since late August – only holding Numancia to a 1-1 draw in the process. Ruben Baraja has obviously set up a tougher defensive line in Gijon and we’ll now surely see them in a good mood as well.
Reus Deportiu have, on the other end, seen a drop in their form and failed to bag a win since mid-September. Gimnastic Tarragona held them to a 1-1 draw and they seem to have struggled to bounce back, with losses to Almeria and Granada seen in late September and early October, respectively. They will now want more at El Molinon but it’s tough seeing them get it.
Sporting Gijon vs Reus: Head-to-head
- The sides have met just three times ever and all three clashes happened over the past year.
- Gijon earned two wins, making their way through to the next round of Copa del Rey and securing home points in Segunda.
- Reus earned a narrow 1-0 win along the way, proving themselves as tough rivals after all.
Sporting Gijon vs Reus: Prediction
We do believe we’re now in for another narrow occasion but we’ll back the home side to turn it their way, sticking our necks out for Gijon to win to Nil at 2.37. We have seen them rock-solid defensively at home ground and Reus should have troubles finding the net on the day as well!
We don’t see this as a one-sided contest either and with that in mind, we’ll back Reus to put on a solid challenge and keep their own, where Under 2.5 goals looks great value even at 1.53. Gijon have regularly enjoyed such clashes at home ground and this does feel like buying money for old rope now.
