With the two of these teams battling relegation the visit of Getafe to Sporting Gijon will be an important one for both teams. Getafe are unbeaten in their last five but have lost seven of their last nine away games. Getafe managed to stop a run of four straight defeats when holding Valencia to a draw in their last away game. Getafe are a solid if unspectacular team but have struggled to score goals this season with just eighteen this year. Getafe will look to Scepovic, Rodriguez and Vasquez to improve their goal scoring ways and this is a game that they will fancy their chances of improving their goals record as Sporting Gijon have lost four of their last five.
With Sporting Gijon struggling to adapt to life in the Primera Divsion having been promoted last season this is a team that must start to pick up points, especially at home if they are going to survive this season. The jump from Division 2 to Primera is a tough one to navigate and Sporting possibly havent brought in enough quality attackers. Sanabria and Halilovich are top scorers at the moment with five goals between them in their last two appearances at home. I think Sporting will see this as an opportunity to get three points and move away from the relegation zone.
Tough one to call here, I think the draw is probably the best bet with both teams struggling offensively. Getafe have the experience to stay up but will need to take points from games like this in order to do it. Take the draw here on a min bet.
