Sporting Gijon vs Zaragoza
Gijon looked like a slight favorite away to Lugo last time out, but couldn't establish their real possession game and the match ended as a goalless game during which neither of the teams looked like sides willing to risk a lot. They now have no defeat in last five rounds, being six points behind playoff zone and are in a must-win situation.
Zaragoza managed to break their unimpressive record of five games with no win, with a 2:1 home victory over Extremadura UD last time out. They stood behind in the scoreline, but reacted far better in the second halftime of the match. They are now just above the relegation zone having two points more than red zone placed teams.
The guests miss central back Grippo (10/0) and offensive Vazquez (15/4), alongside long-term absentee Toquero who didn't play this season anyway.
Zaragoza concedes goals way too easily this season and it's something that could be very problematic here. Gijon, on the other side, has a very firm defensive line and doesn't concede easily at all. Chances are way bigger for the home win than what the odds suggest, at least in my eyes.
