Sp. Gijon v Espanyol

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Sporting Gijon have picked up just six points from a possible 51 against top-half teams this season
Expert verdict
Sporting Gijon's 2-2 draw at bottom club Osasuna did little to boost their survival chances in La Liga so they desperately need a home win over Espanyol. Gijon conceded a last-minute goal in the 3-2 defeat to Real Madrid in their last game on their own patch and their defensive vulnerability could cost them against an Espanyol side who have won 12 of 16 matches against teams in the bottom half.
