Betting tips and match preview | La Liga Primera

Valencia welcome Sporting Gijon to the Mestalla in a match that pits 11th placed Valencia against 19th placed Sporting Gijon, Valencia are looking to break into the top six and register their first league win under manager Gary Neville and Gijon are looking to continue their march up the table and away from the relegation zone.

Valencia will be looking to improve on their mixed season so far, they find themselves in a disappointing 11th place in La Liga, they are 8 points off 6th placed Eibar and they need a run of wins to climb quickly up the table and given the difference in points between the sides in that section of the table, they have a great chance of climbing and doing it quickly. They are in excellent form though and are unbeaten in their last five matches, and face Barcelona in the semi final of the Copa del Rey.

Relegation Threat Real For Sporting Gijon

The visitors Gijon find themselves in the perilous position of 19th in La Liga, they are one point away from safety in what is very slim margins at the bottom of the table. As many as 8 teams are embroiled in relegation trouble, with only four points separating Sporting Gijon and 13th placed Espanyol. Gijon won their last match, a crucial six pointer against Sociedad in emphatic style 5-1 last time out in what is a fantastic omen for their relegation battle. This is another huge match if they are to avoid relegation and to keep the pressure on the sides above them but another win could catapult them as high as 15th if other results go their way.

Valencia are in consistent form in La Liga and have a record of four draws and two losses and will want to produce consistently good results and wins to challenge the sides above them to break into the top ten and then the top six. Sporting Gijon have a record of four losses, one win and one draw in their last six matches and will need to better this sequence of form if they want to retain their La Liga status.

Both teams are 5/6 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Valencia are Alvaro Negredo at 4/1 and Santi Mina at 5/1. For Sporting Gijon Antonio Sanabria is at 15/2 with Miguel Guerrero and Carlos Castro at 9/2.

The last time these sides played Valencia won 1-0 and the odds of the same score line are 11/2.
