Osasuna vs Sporting de Gijon live
Osasuna vs Sporting de Gijon live, Sporting de Gijon vs Osasuna live, Sporting de Gijon live, Osasuna live, It’s the battle of the teams in the relegation zone as bottom of the table Osasuna welcome 18th place Sporting Gijón to Pamplona on Saturday afternoon.
Somehow both these teams are hanging on by a thread in La Liga because Leganés keep letting them off the hook, but this could be a pivotal weekend especially for Sporting. Osasuna have most likely mentally prepared for relegation already so they’re just playing for pride but Sporting are only five points from safety and they seriously need to start putting points on the board. Can the side from Gijón prevent this fixture being played in Segunda next season?
LAST TIME OUT
Atlético Madrid 3-0 Osasuna
Despite resting many of their starmen for the Champions League tie, Atlético were simply too strong for Osasuna and it turned out to be a shocking afternoon for the men from Pamplona. It was definitely the wrong time to play Cholo Simeone’s men and the stats certainly reflected their dominance as Osasuna only managed three attempts on goal but none of them tested goalkeeper Jan Oblak. Osasuna goalkeeper Sirigu is the only player who can hold his head high after last week’s performance as he brilliantly saved two penalties.
Sporting Gijón 2-3 Real Madrid
It was heartbreak for Sporting as they were denied an invaluable point against league leaders Real Madrid last weekend. The hosts got off to the perfect start as top goalscorer Duje Cop put them ahead early on but Madrid replied almost immediately. Sporting went back in front after the interval as Mikel Vesga produced a world class header to send the home faithful into raptures. Sporting couldn’t hold on as Madrid equalised and then won the game in the last minute leaving Sporting devastated and mentally spent.
