Sporting Gijon will welcome UD Almeria to Estadio El Molinon for a matchday 14 fixture in the Spanish Segunda Division on Tuesday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Lugo on Saturday. Christopher Ramos and Bodgan Milovanov got on the scoresheet in the second half for either side.

Almeria secured the maximum points with a narrow 1-0 victory over Leganes. Francisco Portillo's first-half goal proved to be the difference between the two sides.

The victory helped the Andalusians retain their spot at the summit of the standings with 28 points garnered from 13 matches. Sporting Gijon are in fifth spot on 22 points.

Sporting Gijon vs Almeria Prediction

Sporting Gijon have home advantage in their favor but their recent inconsistency means they go into this game as underdogs. This could work in their favor, although Almeria are unlikely to underate their hosts, given the quality available to them.

Home matches involving Gijon tend to be cagey affairs and that trend could be set to continue. The visitors have automatic promotion in their sights and we are backing them to secure maximum points with a narrow victory.

Prediction: Sporting Gijon 0-1 Almeria
