SD Huesca vs Sporting Gijón – 25/11/2022
On Friday night, Huesca and Sporting Gijon go head-to-head at the Estadio El Alcoraz in the Spanish Segunda.
The hosts are currently in ninth place in the Segunda table and two points off the play-off spots in the Spanish second tier. However, a recent inconsistent run of league form has prevented Huesca from moving into those all-important play-off spots.

In fact, their recent league form could not have been any more inconsistent, as Huesca has won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six league outings.
A 2-0 defeat against Tenerife last time out in the Segunda continued a low-scoring trend for Huesca, as their previous ten Segunda matches have all produced under 2.5 goals.
Jose Angel Ziganda’s team have been strong on home soil of late, as they are unbeaten in seven home matches in the Spanish second tier, having recorded five wins and two draws.
The visitors are just two points behind their hosts in the Segunda table. A victory would see them leapfrog their opponents in the standings.
However, victories have been in short supply in recent times for Sporting, as they have failed to win in their previous five league matches.
It has been a tale of too many draws for the visitors, though, as four of their last five league matches have finished all square. Sporting Gijon has been hard to beat of late in the Segunda, as they have lost just once in their last ten matches in the Spanish second tier.
The visitors have been poor travellers in recent seasons in the Segunda, as they have recorded just one away win in their previous 15 league outings on their travels.
What does Forebet predict?
With not much between these two teams in the league table, it is of little surprise that Forebet predicts that this game will produce a low-scoring draw.
