Barcelona vs Sporting Gijon Predictions

Barcelona’s season looked in danger of completely capitulating when they headed to Galicia on Wednesday night having lost 4 of their previous 5 games and having seen their 9 point lead at the top of La Liga completely disappear.

However the Catalans were back to their blistering best, completely destroying Deportivo de La Coruña 8-0 with Luis Suarez in inspired form scoring 4 goals and creating a further 3. Barca made a real statement with the win and looked to have finally woken up to the fact that any more slip-ups would most likely result in the title heading to Madrid.

That is still the case and they could be in 3rd place by the time this kicks off so they will again be very hungry to put in a big performance particularly given they aren’t involved in the Champions League so will have a rare midweek off after this game. Therefore there will be no resting of star players and Messi, Suarez and Neymar will be unleashed upon a Sporting Gijon side that will be without perhaps their best defender, Benardo.

The consequences could again be devastating. Barca’s Champions League exit and 3 league losses appear to have made them angry and more determined than ever to make sure they win this league and they should win this game with ease. 

Sporting Gijon climbed out of the relegation zone with a crucial 2-1 win over Sevilla on Wednesday but they are much better at home than away and a trip to Camp Nou at a time when Barca feel like they have a point to prove is only likely to end one way and that is in a heavy defeat. Therefore backing Barcelona -3 Goal Handicap at 5/6 looks good here.
