With these stats, our first Racing Santander vs Gijon prediction is a bet on Racing Santander to score first.
Under 2.5 goals
While Santander are our favourite to score the opener, the fact that the hosts sit below Gijon on the log complicates matters. Racing Santander are currently ranked 12th and will need at least 5 points to catch up with Sporting Gijon in 6th place. Overall, the visitors have leaked fewer goals than Santander, so we think this will be a low-scoring clash. Thus, our second Racing Santander vs Gijon prediction is under 2.5 goals.
Under 9.5 corners

With the game experience to yield fewer than 3 goals and that the visitors are likely to adopt a defensive approach to guard against another worrying result on the road, we predicting fewer than 9 corners on matchday.
