Draw

Reason for tip

Espanyol, who will advance with a 1-0 defeat after winning the first leg in Gijon by that score, have drawn six of their last nine games. They rarely concede at home and can battle out another stalemate against a Sporting Gijon side that have failed to win seven of their last nine away matches.

Draw 0-0

Reason for tip

This is a clash of two sides with tight defences – Espanyol allowed just 18 goals in 21 home games during the regular season while Sporting Gijon’s tally of 24 away goals conceded was among the best Segunda records on the road. Espanyol shipped only four goals across their final eight home league fixtures, but an inability to score meant they only took all three points in three of their last nine, so a 0-0 draw could be on the cards.

Espanyol vs Sporting Gijon Predictions

  • Espanyol can advance with a 1-0 defeat after winning the first leg in Gijon by that score
  • Espanyol have drawn six of their last nine games
  • Sporting Gijon have failed to win seven of their last nine away matches

Los Pericos hold all the cards

Sporting Gijon have left themselves with plenty of work to do as they head to Barcelona a goal down to Espanyol in the Segunda Division play-off semi-final.
Los Pericos’ have much better prospects of securing their return to the Spanish top-flight after earning a 1-0 first-leg win in Asturias on Sunday night.
In a tight game, former Espanyol forward Victor Campuzano squandered Rojiblancos’ best chance and they were made to pay when Javi Puado rounded the keeper to score the only goal of the game in the 88th minute.

Stalemate seems likely given solid defences

This return clash in Catalunya could be equally tight with Espanyol allowing just 18 goals in 21 home games during the regular season while Sporting Gijon’s tally of 24 away goals conceded was among the best defensive records on the road.
Espanyol shipped only four goals across their final eight home league fixtures, but an inability to score meant they only took all three points in three of their last nine.
Another draw seems a strong possibility in this clash given Sporting Gijon, who have to win by two goals or more because they finished one place lower, have failed to win seven of their last nine away matches.
