Espanyol vs Sporting Gijon Preview 


Espanyol outplayed Sporting Gijon last week and fully deserved their 1-0 lead. They were also one of the most consistent hosts in Segunda this season, so I am backing home win in Barcelona.

  • Espanyol have won 3 of their last 4 matches. 
  • Espanyol beat Sporting Gijon 1-0 last weekend. 
  • Sporting Gijon have lost 6 of their last 9 away matches. 

Head to Head 


Sporting Gijon have a 9-8 advantage against Espanyol with 8 draws in 25 matches. 

Espanyol Form 


Manolo Gonzalez’s side claimed a deserved 1-0 victory in the first tie last weekend, Javi Puado scoring a late goal, while Sergi Gomez was sent off in stoppage time. 

Espanyol were slightly more successful in the regular season than Sporting Gijon, ending the Segunda Division 2023/24 campaign in 4th place with 69 points, just three points short of direct promotion to the top flight.  

Los Periquitos were victorious in the final round at home against FC Cartagena 3-0, scoring all three goals in the second half through Javi Puado, Martin Braithwaite and Nico Melamed.  

The main reason why they missed on direct promotion is high number of draws recently – eight in their last eleven Segunda Division appearances. Espanyol were held to goalless draws by Amorebieta, Real Valladolid and Sporting Gijon in May. 

Espanyol Injuries & Team News 


Omar Sadik and Edu Exposito are injured. 

Sergi Gomez is suspended. 

Sporting Gijon Form 


Los Rojiblancos were outplayed in the first tie by Espanyol (lost 1-0), ending the match with 0.97-2.24 expected goals, 45% possession and 9-16 shots. 

Sporting Gijon ended the Segunda Division regular season in 5th place with 65 points (18 wins, 11 draws and 13 defeats), seven points behind the direct promotion spot.  

Their form has been great in the last couple of weeks, including back to back victories against Eldense 1-0 (Roque Mesa on target) and Eibar 1-0 (Victor Campuzano bagging a late winner).  This was a great response to a 2-1 defeat against the league winners Leganes earlier in May.

Verdict

Sporting Gijon struggled on the road in the last two three months, losing six of their last nine contests. Espanyol looked great in the first tie, so I am backing home win.
