As the end of Spanish La Liga season draws near, Sporting Gijon continues their relegation battle when they take on Eibar at El Molinon on Friday 29th April 2016, kick-off at 19:30 GMT. They will be looking to get back to wining ways and grab the three priceless points to extend their stay in Spanish flight beyond the current season.
Sporting Gijon were brutalised by leaders Barcelona in their last game to push them down to 18th place in the table, they are now on same points with Getafe in the 19th place and a point below Granada in the 17th position.
Eibar’s decline continued in their last game when they were held to a stalemate by Deportivo la Coruna at home, they will need to be on their toes in this game to avoid a defeat.
- Eibar are having a decline as the season is coming to an end, they have lost 3 of their last 6 games, won 1 and drew 2.
- Eibar have been without a win in their last 8 away games.
- Eibar are also unable to keep a single away clean sheet since January.
- Sporting Gijon has a fair home record as they managed two wins from their last three matches and can depend on to lift them out of the relegation zone.
