Sporting Gijon take on the visitors Zaragoza in the round 11 match of Spanish LaLiga2. The match will be played on Saturday, October 14th at Estadio El Molinón (Gijón).
The Rojiblancos have frequently made appearances in La Liga. However, after spending a couple of years there, they would invariably regress. Even after spending two seasons in La Liga from 2015 to 2017, they couldn't manage a return. Their best chance was in the first playoff stage (fourth place with a loss), and afterwards, they finished outside the top 6. In 2022 and this spring, they finished in seventeenth place. Currently, the red and whites have risen to the top group after an undefeated streak but lost to Racing 2-3 on the road.

Zaragoza could be a pleasant surprise now. The Aragonese are known for their cup victories, with six Copa del Rey wins, including one in 2004. Since 2013, Los Blanquillos have lost their place in La Liga and have failed to make a return. After a third-place finish in 2020, they finished no higher than tenth, and last spring, they were thirteenth. However, they have suddenly improved their performance and have a chance, if not for the top spot, then for second place, which would secure promotion to La Liga. However, the team has recently had some setbacks, including a 0-2 home loss to Alcorcon, which marked their third defeat in the last four games. This could lead to a loss of confidence and belief in their capabilities.
In the 2021-2022 season, Zaragoza won three consecutive matches. However, in January, Sporting won 1-0 against them in Gijon. Both teams have question marks, but it appears that Los Blanquillos may have run out of steam. It is believed that Sporting can secure a victory in their home of Gijon.
Prediction for the match: Sporting Gijon to win.
