Gijon suffered a narrow 2–1 loss to Celta Vigo on Round 5. The red and white makes it 2 losses in a row, and conceded 7 goals in 2 back-to-back league fixtures. Abelardo Fernández tutored Gijon will hope to turn their losing ill luck in matches against Barca. Sporting currently occupies 10th spot in the La Liga table with 7 points from 5 matches. As regards Gijon team news, midfielder Moi Gomez is carrying an injury but otherwise Sporting should be at full strength and few changes are expected despite 2 defeats already this week.
Meanwhile, the Catalan dropped point for the second time in 2016/2017 Laliga season, when they settled for 1–1 stalemate in the midweek battle with Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid. However, Barcelona won their first 2 away league fixtures, scoring 6 goals and conceding 1. The reigning champions are currently third on the table with 10 points from 5 matches played so far. As for Barca’s injury update, Samuel Umtiti is still out so Jeremy Mathieu and Javier Mascherano will be able to show their abilities. The main concern is, of course, Leo Messi’s injury, the iconic player is out for about three weeks, so Arda Turan will have a chance to shine this weekend.
