Sporting Gijon vs Villarreal Predictions

Sporting have been an entertaining addition to La Liga. They’ve played some good football at times and have some exciting young players but they go into the final day with their fate not in their own hands. They need to win this and hope Getafe don’t win at Betis if they are to avoid an immediate return to the Segunda Division. They have been going pretty well of late particularly at home where they’ve won 3 of the last 4 matches with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid amongst their victims so they have no reason to fear Villarreal and will certainly be roared on by a passionate home crowd which could make a difference.

Villarreal have nothing to play having already secured 4th place which helps explain why Sporting are such clear favourites to win this match and they were extremely poor last weekend when they sank to a 2-0 home defeat against an out-of-form Deportivo side. That did Sporting no favours whatsoever and they will most likely be up against a stronger Villarreal team here as the Yellow Submarine rested a host of players last weekend given they’d been in Europa League action only 3 days previously.

Top scorer Cedric Bakambu and strike-partner Roberto Soldado are likely to return up front for this and they ought to be a lot more competitive here having had a rare whole week off to prepare for this game. They also won 2-0 at Valencia in their most recent away game and clearly their 4th place finish indicates they are a good side so backing Villarreal +2 Goal Handicap at 4/6 looks to offer real value here as if Sporting are to win, it’s unlikely to be a comfortable one and backing that also allows for the possibility that Sporting’s young players crumble under the immense pressure of this game.
