Deportivo La Coruna vs Sporting Gijon Prediction 1 October 2016

Struggling hosts face Sporting, who lost three matches in a row with 1-12 on aggregate.

Deportivo La Coruna take on the visitors sporting Gijon in the round 7 match of Spanish La Liga. The match will be played at Riazor on Saturday, October 1st.

Deportivo La Coruna are on five-match streak without a single win. Victory over Eibar on the opening match of the season, 2-1, was followed by three defeats and two draws in Primera. These results come as no surprise as Deportivo scored only one goal in five games. Five gained points put the team on the 16th position in the standings. Three home matches got the team one win over Eibar and two losses against Athletic Bilbao and Leganes, 0-1 and 1-2 respectively.

Sporting had excellent start of the season but tough schedule put them on three-match losing streak, 1-2 to Celta Vigo and two 0-5 defeats to Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. Seven points gained in starting matches allowed the visiting side to take 14th positon in the league. We should note that Sporting are unable to win on the road since the end of January, ten matches ago, with five draws and five defeats recorded.

Sporting Gijon are undefeated in head-to-heads with Deportivo La Coruna since 1999, 10 matches in a row. Neither of the teams in their best conditions before the upcoming match and their offensive lines produce very small number of goals so we should expect nothing like a goal feast in this game.

Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
