Gijon take on the visitors Ibiza in the round 7 match of Spanish LaLiga2. The match will be played on Friday, September 23rd at Estadio El Molinón (Gijón).
Sporting Gijon improved after a bad last season. The “Rojiblancos” throughout its history, and this is almost a century long, have been playing either in the Segunda (more often), or in the LaLiga. The last time at the LaLiga level it was possible to perform in the segment from 2015 to 2017. It’s impossible to return again, although Gijon were close to this several times. But in the last temporade it was possible to collect 46 points, 3 more than the eliminated Amorebieta. It is clear that it is necessary to add, and for this they returned Abelardo, who coached the project in 2014-2017, not without success. At the start of the new season, it was possible to alternate wins (with Andorra and Ponferradina) and draws (with Mirandes and Burgos), but then there was a misfire at home with Racing, 0-2. And then they lost to Zaragoza, but minimally, 0-1.

Ibiza spend only the 2nd season at this level. The Celestes is one of the youngest Spanish football projects, they were founded in 2015. Already in 2018, the team played in the 3rd division of the country, and a year ago made its debut in the LaLiga2. To begin with, the newcomer took 15th place, having managed to gain a foothold at this level. Since the summer, a new mentor has appeared, Javier Baraja - the brother of the more famous Ruben, who played mainly in Valladolid, and before that he worked with the puselanos double. He started in a new place frankly unsuccessfully. His wards lost to both Granada and Ponferradina, and after a draw at home with Alaves, defeat to Huesca followed, also decorated with a devastating 0-3. And only with Tenerife in mid-September it turned out to win. And that was due to Mello's own goal, which turned out to be the only goal in that meeting. Then it was 1-0 win on the Oviedo field.
The teams met for the first time in the last Segunda season. Then they exchanged away victories: 0-2 in Ibiza, 0-1 in Gijón. Ibiza are now gradually gaining momentum. So you can use a bet on the fact that they will not lose the match in Gijon.
Prediction for the match: Ibiza to win with +0.5 handicap (X2).
