Looking at Numancia vs Sporting Gijon Prediction, Numancia will play host to Sporting Gijon at Los Pajaritos.
Although not spectacular, both teams have made a solid start to the Segunda Division this season.
Numancia collected 5 points from 4 matches in the league, or after they won their first win of the season last weekend. A narrow 1-0 win at home to Elche was a positive result of Numancia's defensive performance, which had conceded 7 goals in 3 matches before that.
On the other hand, Sporting Gijon only suffered its first league defeat this season at the weekend.
Sporting appear to be in a draw, after midfielder Isaac Cofie was sent off in a clash against Deportivo La Coruna, the new team relegated from La Liga.
However, Deportivo were able to score a late goal to make Sporting take the first defeat of the season.
In total, Sporting have won 2 of the 3 opening matches of the season.
Ahead of this match, Numancia will be the favorite to win a meeting with Sporting. That's because they really had a good performance in the same competition last season, even qualifying to the last 16 to meet the giant club La Liga, Real Madrid.
Based on head to head, the two teams also met in the Copa del Rey last season. Numancia won in the shootout, after drawing 1-1 in Asturias. While Sporting have won 3 of the last 4 league meetings against Numancia.
