Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Sporting de Gijon play host to UD Logrones at Estadio El Molinon in the opening match of the season. Los Rojiblancos have been having their ups and downs in pre-season, but their display in a 1-1 draw with La Liga side Celta is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. New boss David Gallego is on a quest to help Sporting Gijon bring glory days back to “Molinon”, but it has to be noted that the club chiefs were anything but active in the summer transfer window.
UD Logrones, on the other hand, secured promotion to La Liga 2 by beating Castellon on penalties in the Segunda B playoffs final. The newcomers aim to prove their worth in the Spanish second tier as well, but they face a difficult task in the opening match of the season. Summer signings Alex Perez and Andoni Lopez are likely to make their UD Logrones debut against Sporting.
