Tip Reasoning

  • Almeria have only lost two of their last 11 games
  • Sporting Gijon have won just three away league fixtures this season
  • Almeria are unbeaten at home against teams in the bottom half

Almeria chasing top flight return

After six seasons in the Segunda division, and having finished twice in the last two campaigns, Almeria are primed for a place in the automatic promotion spots after a run of just two defeats in 11.

Rubi’s side have been strong at home this year, losing just three times – each to sides in the top half of the table – and winning four of the last six.

Indeed, 39 of their 67 points have been collected at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterráneos, while they have into this fixture unbeaten in three.

Gijon still at risk of relegation

Sporting Gijon on the other hand are fighting a battle at the other end of the table, and five defeats in their last nine mean they sit seven points clear of the relegation zone with six games to play.

José Luis Martí’s side have been dreadful on the road, winning just three times, with victory against Girona in September the only time they have won away to a side in the top half.

They head into this fixture having won just twice in twelve, with seven of those matches ending in defeat.

Almeria should win this game, and the certainly need to for their promotion push, so a home victory is my initial selection, picking 2-1 for a correct score prediction.
