Sporting Gijon has continued to struggle this season with five winless efforts in their last six matches, including four losses and a draw. The team is still in the relegation area at the moment, tied on points with Granada but has a higher goal differential. They are six points above cellar-dwellers CA Osasuna.

The Rojiblancos are coming off a disappointing 1-4 defeat at the hands of contending squad Atletico Madrid also at the El Molinon Stadium last Saturday, Goal reported.

The first half ended with a goalless draw as both sides held on with their respective defenses. Atleti midfielder Yannick Carrasco was able to open the scoring one minute after the restart but Sporting midfielder Sergio Alvarez immediately equalized the count with a right-footed shot from the center of the box off an assist by Burgui.

However, head coach Rubi's squad conceded three goals in the last 10 minutes before full-time as Madrid's substitute striker Kevin Gameiro unleashed a hat-trick in the 80th, 81st, and 85th minutes to break the game wide open.

Meanwhile, Celta Vigo routed the Osasuna, 3-0, at their home ground of Balaídos Stadium last Sunday, as per Sofa Score.

Danish winger Pione Sisto scored the first goal of the match in the 23rd minute to give head coach Eduardo Berizzo's side a one-point lead at the half. Spanish midfielder Jozabed then doubled the lead in the 87th minute before his compatriot striker Iago Aspas sealed the win in the 89th.

It was the second win in three games for the Célticos as the team is settled in the ninth spot of the league table at the moment.
