Valladolid vs Sporting Gijon Spanish Segunda Predictions 7th June 2018
Real Valladolid bagged a comfortable 3-1 win in the first leg of this tie vs Sporting Gijon on Thursday, 7th June 2018. Find the predictions for Valladolid vs Sporting Gijon second leg fixture here.

Real Valladolid just missed out on the promotional play-offs in the previous term of Segunda Division. They did not let the same happen this time out as the huge performance on the final day of the regular season led them to a comfortable 2-0 victory over direct rivals Osasuna booking the top-six finish for Sergio Gonzalez and his men.

Pucela, however, still have two very tough obstacles to pass in order to make it to the top flight. The first one comes in the likes of Sporting Gijon who are looking for the immediate return to Primera Division football having suffered the relegation last year.

The hosts head into the first leg as the form favourites given that Rojiblancos’ form saw a huge slide in the last couple of the regular season weeks. Gijon lost as many as four of last five league matches and Ruben Baraja will hardly have reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Estadio Municipal Jose Zorrilla knowing that his men lost three on the bounce away from home in Segunda Division.

Valladolid vs Sporting Gijon: Head-to-head

  • The head to head stats also speak in Valladolid’s favour as the hosts won 14 and lost 9 of 28 encounters with Rojiblancos.
  • Gijon were the better side in the regular season, though, clinching four points from two matches with Pucela.
  • Overall, Valladolid won 8, drew 1 and lost 4 of 13 home outings against Sporting Gijon.
  • Just one of last four head to head affairs produced three or more goals.

Valladolid vs Sporting Gijon Predictions

Pucela have been red-hot in the final third lately and we have to see them as heavy favourites on the night. The hosts bagged two or more goals in each of last four games in the regular season and they’ll head into this off the back of four wins in last five league outings.

The man to look after is Jaime Mata who had an amazing campaign with as many as 33 goals scored in 39 appearances for Pucela this season. Mata bagged six goals in last four league matches and he should have plenty of space to deliver up front past the struggling defensive line of Gijon’s here.

The value is massive in backing the hosts to clinch the victory at 2.10, while we will alternatively take Valladolid to score two or more goals at the 2.40 odds.
