      « Reply #1 on: January 29 2016, 15:34 »

      Valencia and Sporting Gijón meet at Estadio de Mestalla, in a match for the 22th round of the Primera División. Valencia got an away win by (0‑1), in the last league head‑to‑head, played in 12‑09‑2015. The recent head‑to‑head record favours the home team, since they have a record of 2 wins in the last 2 matches. In this match the home advantage may play an important role, as both teams present significant differences between home and away performances.

      Analysis of Valencia

      After 5 wins, 10 draws and 6 losses, the home team is in the 11th position, havinf won 25 points so far. In the last match, they have tied in an away match against Deportivo La Coruña by (1‑1), after in the previous match they have tied (2‑2) at home, against Rayo Vallecano. This is a team that is often stronger at home, with the help of its supporters, so they usually make good use of the home advantage, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses in away matches; against 6 wins, 7 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. They come to this match after a away win against Las Palmas by (0‑1). For the league, Valencia won 16 points out of 30 possible points, after 3 wins and 7 draws in the last 10 home matches.

      They have tied the last 5 home matches and haven't lost any of the last 10 home matches for this competition. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 12 of their 21 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

      Coach Gary Neville’s team usually plays in counterattack, particularly through the wings. Moreover, Valencia is usually very aggressive defensively when it comes to regaining possession of the ball. But despite this they also have a few defensive weaknesses. Negredo is one of the most creative players of the team, so in the absence of Alcácer, who is recovering from an injury, he should be the main target of Gijón defenders.

      Analysis of Sporting Gijón

      The away team is currently in the 19th position of the league, with 18 points won, after 5 wins, 3 draws and 12 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Real Madrid, by (5‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Real Sociedad, by (5‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 1 draw and 10 losses in away matches, with 11 goals scored and 26 conceded; against 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 19 conceded. In the last 10 away league matches Sporting Gijón has a record of 2 wins and 8 losses, so they have won 6 points out of 30 possible.

      In this competition, they have a sequence of 7 losses in the last away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 11 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 20 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 10 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 11 away matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (0'‑15').

      Sporting Gijón comes to this match motivated by a home win against Real Sociedad, by 5-1. Gijón presents a mixed game style, but seems to prefer long passes directly towards the forwards. Despite some lack of offensive efficiency, Antonio Sanabria is the best scorer of the team, with 9 goals scored this season. The only absent player should be Bernardo Espinosa, who is recovering from an injury.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that both teams will score. Valencia should have more initiative in the match, but Sporting Gijón should take a few risks in counterattacks, to try to explore the defensive weaknesses of Valencia. Therefore, this match should be balanced and with a few goals in the final score.
