Sporting Gijon vs Valladolid Preview and Predictions

Sporting Gijon vs Valladolid
Spain Segunda Division
Date: Sunday, 10th June 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Estadio El Molinon (Gijon).

Sporting Gijon are going to face Valladolid in the second leg match of the promotion playoffs in Spanish Segunda Division.

Home side extended their bad run from the finish of the regular season after failing to a 3-1 defeat in the first leg clash between these two sides. In the final five rounds they have lost four times and the direct promotion spot slipped out of their hands. Ruben Baraja should be looking for a winning formula as there’s not much time for his team since if they fail to win by at least two goals their quest for the place in Primera Division will be finished.

Valladolid are in a totally opposite momentum as they managed to book their place in the playoffs after a furious finish and four wins from the last five rounds. They are the most efficient side in the competition and Jaime Mata was pretty inspired in front of the oppositions’ goal this season. The visitors have a very nice advantage from their first clash and they should be looking to defend it.

Sporting Gijon vs Valladolid: Predictions

A very tough challenge is ahead of the hosts and according to their most recent displays they are not expected to advance to the finals. Valladolid must continue their unbeatable streak by snatching a draw from this one, which wouldn’t be surprising if we take into consideration their recent clashes.

The visitors have been involved in high scoring matches this season, a nd although their attacking work is the best in the competition, they have allowed too many goals. Since the hosts need to attack, we are expecting an open game in which both teams should be capable f scoring at least once.
