Málaga CF will welcome Sporting Gijón to Estadio La Rosaleda for a matchday 23 fixture in Spain Segunda División. The last meeting on 26th September 2021 ended in a Sporting Gijón 2-1 win. Both sides have met nineteen times in the most recent seasons. Málaga CF has won 8 matches, and Sporting Gijón triumphed in 6. Recent outings average 2.16 goals, while both teams score 53% of the time.
Málaga CF’s latest fixture against AD Alcorcón ended in an away 1-0 win. Málaga CF was very dangerous in attack, having attempted three shots on target. Málaga CF was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 80 minute.
Sporting Gijón’s recent game against CD Lugo ended in a home 1-1 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn’t enough to win three points. Sporting Gijón deserved to score in the second half and did so in the 61st minute.
Since the start of the season, Málaga CF is more dominant at home. They have seven wins out of 11 games on home soil. Los Boquerones’s good defensive display is key to their success. They didn’t concede in 55% of home games.
Sporting Gijón has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Sporting Gijón wins 0.91 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Sporting Gijón kept a clean sheet in just 18% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Sporting Gijón.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 27% of Málaga CF’s home and Sporting Gijón’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
