Sporting Gijón have not been spoiled with points this season. Can the team get a victory when Girona stop by Estadio Municipal El Molinón?

Insights:
  • Sporting Gijón have the fewest scored goals in the first half (11) in La Liga 2

Girona have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 900 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.

Both teams should be fairly well rested for this game, as they have had some quiet days to prepare. Hopefully this will translate into lots of action on the pitch.
