Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Malaga and Sporting Gijon go head to head at Estadio La Rosaleda on day 7 of the new La Liga 2 campaign. Los Boquerones aim to build on a 2-1 win over Zaragoza, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the visit of the midweek clash. Malaga aim to keep on climbing the standings, but the match against the second-place side will be anything but a walk in the park for the Blue-Whites.
Argentina international Pablo Chavarria, who opened his goalscoring account at the weekend, is likely to keep his place up front. Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, kicked off the new Segunda Division campaign with four straight wins, but they have not been as impressive in the league of late. Following a 1-0 loss to Oviedo, Sporting Gijon shared the spoils with Tenerife at the weekend, and, taking everything into account, the maximum they can get from the Malaga game is one point.
