In a keenly contested Segunda Division, where over 2.5 goals have been notched in just 32.8% of the season’s fixtures so far, Monday’s meeting between Sporting Gijon and Rayo Vallecano promises to be a real battle for inches.
Gijon can move to within a single point of the league’s summit with a victory over Vallecano, though the hosts – who are averaging just 1.0 goals per 90 minutes this term – will have to work hard for their win.
With three defeats in their last four Segunda Division assignments, Rayo have been on the slide in recent weeks, and Los Franjirrojos could find themselves in the bottom half of the table by the time their contest at the Estadio El Molinón on Monday kicks off.
Sporting are unbeaten on their own patch since the summer, and having won four of their first five league games on home soil since the new campaign got under way, they look capable of turning over their out of form visitors this week.
Under 2.5 goals were registered in six of Vallecano’s last six games, and in nine of Gijon’s 11 league fixtures overall this season however, and a glut of incident in the final third shouldn’t be expected when the teams lock horns on Monday.
With the factors aligned, backing the home win and under 2.5 goals combination is advised for Monday’s tussle, while our correct score prediction tips Gijon to force a narrow 1-0 win against a Rayo outfit that were beaten by that scoreline in each of their last two games.
