Top football predictions for Rayo Majadahonda – Sporting Gijon
Rayo Majadahonda hosts Sporting Gijon in a third round of the Copa del Rey tournament. The duel is on Thursday, October 18, at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.
Rayo Majadahonda’s team is on 13th place in the second level of the Spanish football Segunda Division. The hosts are in a series of two consecutive wins after winning their last two championship games.

Rayo Majadahonda has three successes and one defeat in his last four home games. The team scored in all of these matches by keeping two dry nets.
In the Copa del Rey tournament, Rayo Majadahonda’s team eliminated Las Palmas after a 2-1 win as a guest. Last season the hosts dropped out early in the tournament after losing to Union Adarve with 0:1. Now, however, Rayo Majadahonda has the opportunity to get to the fights against the elite teams and this will happen if he eliminates Sporting Gijon.
The guests, of course, are not a lightweight rival. Sporting Gijon occupies the tenth position in the Segunda Division with a 12-point mark as the team of Rayo Majadahonda. Sporting Gijon has two wins, one draw and two losses in their last five games. One of the successes, however, was a friendly match against the Langreo 2-0 amateur. In their last match, guests made 1:1 against Reus Deportiu at their stadium. In their last five visits, Sporting Gijon has only one success and this was their victory 2:1 over Numancia in the Copa del Rey tournament.
Rayo Majadahonda won the only match between the two teams with 2:1 on Oct. 8. Now Sporting Gijon will try to take revenge, but it is difficult to predict the final outcome of the game, betting on over 1.5 goals in the game because the odds are not very low.
