      Sporting Gijon vs Real Sociedad Predictions


      Sporting Gijon are really struggling at the moment and won’t be able to bring in any new players this month due to a transfer ban so will have to battle on with what they’ve got. A run of 5 consecutive league defeats has seen them fall to 19th position but they will move out of the relegation zone if they can stop the rot with 3 points here. It’s 8 defeats in 9 games overall in the league and they may find it a tough battle trying to retain their top flight status this term.

      Real Sociedad meanwhile may feel as though they have turned a bit of a corner having not lost yet in 2016 and they’ve taken 5 points from their 3 league matches despite one or two injury problems. They are 5 points above the drop-zone and could really give themselves some breathing space here but a 12 deficit on the top six is likely to be far too much to make up so much like last year a rather aimless final half of the season could be in store as they drift towards a mid-table finish.

      They will though come here with a positive attitude, firmly believing they can win the game and with good reason given how poor Sporting have been of late. The hosts though will see this as one of their better opportunities to pick up a vital 3 points so are likely to be positive too and we should see a fairly open game.

      Both teams have scored in all of the last 3 games at the Estadio Municipal El Molinón and there have been 16 goals in the last 4 matches at the ground. Sporting also netted in their defeat at the Bernabeu so do have a goal in them. Both teams have also scored in all of Real Sociedad’s last 4 away matches so consider backing there to be goals at both ends in this one at odds of 5/6.

      Real Sociedad are playing the better football but have only won 4 of 34 away matches since the start of last season and are winless in their last 6 on the road, which includes trips to several of the sides near the bottom. Therefore Sporting Gijon are capable of getting a result and a score draw seems a likely outcome so consider backing it to finish 2-2 at 14/1.
