Villarreal to Win
The home team is not in the best of forms since they've only won once in the last six games in the league. Meanwhile, Villarreal is on a four-game winning streak in La Liga at the moment.
With that in mind, we can see Villarreal winning this match and we really like the odds on them. And while those matches were played a few years back, Villarreal beat Gijon in four of their last five duels.
Villarreal Over 1.5 Total Goals
Since we expect Villarreal to win this game, we also expect them to score some goals. Sure, they could get a minimal, 1-0 win, but we don't see that happening.
After all, Villarreal scored at least two goals in their last five matches in all competitions and with all of their strikers healthy, we can see them doing the same in this match too.

Sporting Gijon predicted lineup:
Marino – Rosas, Lopez, Gragera, Kravets – Diaz, Mendez – García, Villalba, Campos – Đurđević
It looked like Villarreal may be heading for a rough season for a while, but the team has turned things around completely in the last few weeks and now they once again look like the team to beat. In the league, Villarreal managed to win four games in a row and climb to the eighth spot in the standings, only a few points away from the spot that leads to Champions League.
In addition to this, Villarreal has only minor injury problems at the moment. Coquelan, Pena, Parejo, and Danjuma are all injured or recovering, so they are questionable for the next game.
Villarreal predicted lineup:
Rulli – Estupinan, Torres, Albiol, Foyth – Pino, Trigueros, Iborra, Gomez – Dia, Moreno
