Sporting Gijón form and stats

When playing at home in the La Liga 2, Sporting Gijón have managed 5 wins, 0 draws and suffered 3 defeats from 8 games. It's trouble wherever Gijón are playing these days as they have suffered four straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways.

In their previous game, the manager D. Gallego Rodríguez led his Gijón to a defeat in the La Liga 2 match away at Ponferradina. The manager is hoping to put things right immediately here at Estadio Municipal El Molinón. The forward Gaspar Campos bettered all the other players in that game and was awarded a match rating of 7.31 out of 10. Campos served one assist, hit one key pass and dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times.

Before that game, the home loss against Real Sociedad II with the scoreline 0-1.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Gijón have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found 14 games) they have won nine times, drawn three and lost two.

There will be little rest for Sporting Gijón after this match as they are travelling to Ceares for a Copa Del Rey game in only three days.

Sporting Gijón has scored 9 league goals at home this season, in 8 matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. Sporting Gijón are not conceding a lot of goals here at Estadio Municipal El Molinón in the league, averaging less than one per game. The total is 7 from 8 matches. It's worth mentioning that 4 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

Fuenlabrada form and stats

Fuenlabrada have only collected 6 points from their away games in the La Liga 2, after 1-3-4 (8 played). Three consecutive losses in away matches means Fuenlabrada are growing more and more desperate for a good performance on the road.

Fuenlabrada played 1-1 against Mirandés in their previous match. Fuenlabrada coach J. Oltra Castañer could be heard cursing the gods after the 1-1 draw against Mirandés, as the team hit the posts three times. Adrián Diéguez, who plays in defense, got the "man of the match" on his team with the rating 7.45. Diéguez won 5 of 6 duels.

It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Real Valladolid wasn't a success with a 0-3 loss.

Fuenlabrada are the outsiders in this one, but not by much. Their performance in similar games (being the away team and moderate outsiders) is three wins, five draws and four defeats. From a total of twelve matches.

The visitors will be packing their bags again in only four days as another away game awaits: The Copa Del Rey trip to Alzira.

Fuenlabrada are seemingly not capable of scoring regularly on their travels in the league. They have only managed 4 goals from 8 away games. It's worth mentioning that 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. As opposed to that, Fuenlabrada have seen the ball go into their own net 9 times on the road. It's worth mentioning that 8 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
