The match

The Spanish Second division is one of the few still keeping on amidst the Qatari mega event in the name of the World Cup, with the seventeenth round pitting together Huesca and Sporting Gijon. The hosts conceded a resounding 2-0 defeat to Tenerife at the weekend, falling to ninth place yet two points shy of the play-off spots. It was Huesca’s third defeat in four, with the team showing slight signs of regression after impressively going unbeaten in the seven games before that run. Huesca have also been imperious on home soil, being unbeaten in seven and keeping clean sheets in five of them, while they have won two of their previous four home meetings against Gijon.

The visitors conceded an entertaining draw against Leganes at the weekend, which kept them in eleventh place in the standings. Gijon are now four games unbeaten, while they have lost just two of their last eleven encounters. Their weakness so far has clearly been on the defensive end, with the Gijon side having kept their net intact in just two of those eleven games. They have also beaten Huesca just once in their last seven meetings, while seven of their previous eight clashes have featured Under 2.5 goals.

Key Statistics

Huesca have kept clean sheets in six of their last seven home games

Five of Gijon’s last seven away games have seen Under 2.5 goal scored

Seven of their previous eight meetings have featured Under 2.5 goals

The bet of our experts

Huesca have been imperious on home form, yet their recent slump is a worry ahead of this one. Instead of venturing into the match winner markets, backing the Asian Under 2 goals is the way to go here, in what should be a quite low-scoring affair.
