Two promotion-chasing sides clash on Thursday evening, as Rayo Vallecano look to disrupt the top six while Gijon sit just three points behind them in tenth.

They've drawn three of their last five H2H meetings, which makes for an interesting twist to an important matchup. Read my match preview, for the best betting tips and correct score predictions for this fixture.

Rayo Vallecano vs Sporting Gijon Betting Tips

Mario Suarez's stoppage-time penalty strike rescued a point for Vallecano in their 3-3 draw against strugglers Deportivo last weekend. Thursday's hosts were 2-0 up and relinquished the lead in a remarkable second-half against Depor, who sit just three points outside the relegation places in 17th.

Juan Villar, on-loan from Osasuna, netted his first two Rayo goals in the first-half.

He was sacrificed early after the interval, as Deportivo netted a quick-fire brace to make it 2-2. Late penalties from Ager Aketxe and Suarez ultimately saw the sides share the spoils.

In stark contrast, Gijon lost 1-0 against strugglers Real Oviedo on Monday night. The surprise result saw Oviedo climb out of the relegation places, while inflicting Sporting's fifth defeat of 2020.

It's likely they'll rotate their starting eleven for this fixture, considering the quick turnaround – just three days to recover and prepare after their latest defeat.

Vallecano have drawn far too often (eight in 2020 alone) but have proven tough to beat at the best of times. Gijon, both inconsistent and among the division's lowest scorers (34 goals), know this will be a tricky test to overcome.

With a relentless fixture schedule over the next month, they cannot afford to drop more points if they harbour serious promotion hopes. Potentially eight sides outside the top six have a good chance of sneaking into the play-offs, with eight games left.
