Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in Sporting Gijon’s last five matches
  • Five of Cartagena’s last six fixtures have seen both teams score
  • Sporting have won just one of their last 11 home league games

Sporting Gijon still in trouble

Just six points separate Sporting Gijon and the Segunda relegation zone, with their dreadful home form largely behind their inability to pull away from danger.

José Luis Martí took charge in February and his side remain winless under his tenure, picking up three defeats and a draw, with both teams scoring in each match.

Indeed, Gijon have only kept three clean sheets in their last 30 fixtures, with both teams scoring in 20 of those outings, while their only victory at El Molinón in 11 came against Amorebieta who are second bottom.

Cartagena in touch with the top six

FC Cartagena are only five points outside of the play-off positions, but their form has been a touch patchy of late, losing four of their last seven and keeping just one clean sheet in the process.

Luis Carrión’s side have seen both teams score in five of their last six outings, and six of their last seven away from home, where they have not won in three.

Indeed, they have been defeated nine times on the road in total – only two teams in the division have lost more – and half of their four victories came against sides in the relegation zone.

It seems unlikely that either side will keep a clean sheet in this one, so I predict both teams will score, but neither seem able to win of late either, so I select 2-2 as a correct score prediction.
