      Eibar vs Sporting Gijon Predictions

       

      The Basque club have started this season well and find themselves in mid-table as we approach the mid-point. However they are 5 without a win now in the league and will be desperate to avoid a repeat of last year’s slump in the 2nd half of the campaign. This could be a pivotal spell for the club with 3 of their next 4 matches at home against bottom half sides.

      Sporting Gijon are a point and two places outside the relegation zone but have only won one of their last 7 matches and have lost 4 of their last 5 in the league. They will be without the suspended Luis Hernández and Bernardo Espinosa here and they’d almost certainly be content with a point.

      On the road, Sporting have lost all of their last 4 matches and the Estadio Municipal de Ipurúa has been a tough place to go this season. Only Atletico and Real Madrid have won there and Eibar have taken 12 points from their other 6 matches at the ground this season. Therefore Eibar are well capable of winning this game and can be backed at 17/20 to do so.

      Both sides have been a little more positive and creative than was expected this season and their approach has been refreshing in a league where struggling teams are often very cautious. Goals are likely here and both teams have scored in 8 of Eibar’s last 12 matches.

      Therefore consider backing Eibar to win this 2-1 at odds of 15/2.
