Sporting Gijon will continue their fight for safety when they play host to Quique Sánchez Flores’ Espanyol.

Gijon would need to win all their remaining matches, and hope that results from other teams go their way before they can survive relegation this season.

They are currently 18th on the league table with just 23 points from 33 games.

They need at least 8 points to be safe from relegation this season, and nothing but a win in this match would do.

They are without a win in their last 5 matches, losing 3 and drawing 2 of those games. They drew the last match against 2-2 away at Osasuna, which may be a sign of good things to come.

Espanyol have been fairly inconsistent lately, they have won 3, drawn 1, and lost 2 of their last 6 league matches.

They are currently comfortably 9th on the league table, 5 points ahead of Celta Vigo.

They have 5 points from their last 5 away matches and defeated Leganes the last time they played away from home.

A win in this game will take them 2 points above 8th placed Eibar, although they would have played 2 games more.

Espanyol have shown that they can win away games at the home of small teams so Espanyol look a safer option for those looking to have a punt on this game.
