Without a win in their alst five league games, Sporting Gijon will be looking to put an end to their abysmal downward trend when they host Alaves at El Molinon in the 21st round of the Spanish top flight.
The Hosts Are Struggling
The hosts have been struggling in La Liga ever since the start of the season. The team have failed to win in any of their last five league games. Sporting Gijón have collected just 1 point from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Athletic Club away from home where they lost 2-1.
Sporting Gijón are currently sitting in the 18th place in the league table. They have 13 points from 3 wins, 4 draws and 13 losses. The team scored 20 goals and conceded 39 since the start of the season.
Jean-Sylvain Babin is out due to injury, which should see Jorge Mere rushed back to start in the heart of the hosts’ defence. Duje Cop should retain his place up front for now, despite the deadline day signing of Lacina Traore on loan.
The Alaves Walls
The visitors are in a slightly better situation than the hosts. Alaves have succeeded in grabbing a point from Atletico Madrid in their last La Liga game thanks to their solid defensive unit. Deportivo Alavés have collected a total of 6 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in La Liga. Their last league match was against Atlético de Madrid at home where they drew 0-0.
Deportivo Alavés are currently sitting in the 12th place in the league table. They have 24 points from 5 wins, 9 draws and 6 losses. They have scored 17 goals and conceded 20 since the start of the season.
Head To Head
Sporting Gijón have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in August 2016 when the game finished in a goalless draw.
