Posted on by Sreya

Barcelona vs Sporting Gijon

Barcelona vs Sporting Gijon – Barcelona hosts Sporting Gijon at El Camp Nou on 1st March, Wednesday in a La Liga fixture as they aim to close the gap on league leaders Real Madrid.

Barcelona are second in the league standings with fifty four points, a point behind Real Madrid who have played one fewer game than the Catalan club. In their previous league outing, Barcelona won against Atletico Madrid in a closely contested match, owing to a late goal from Lionel Messi.

Sporting Gijon are eighteenth in the league standings and battling relegation as they have seventeen points after twenty four matches. Although they drew 1-1 against Celta Vigo in their last league fixture, only one win in their previous six La Liga games have put the visitors in a precarious position in the fight for survival.

Team News

Aleix Vidal and Jeremy Mathieu are still sidelined through injuries but Javier Mascherano and Arda Turan have resumed training and will face late fitness tests. The visitors will be without the suspended Jorge Mere but have an otherwise healthy squad to choose from.

Barcelona Possible Starting Lineup: Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Sergi Roberto, Samuel Umiti, Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba, Ivan Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar.

Sporting Gijon Possible Starting Lineup: Ivan Cuellar, Alberto Lora, Fernando Amorebieta, Jean-Sylvain Babin, Roberto Canella, Nacho Cases, Mikel Vesga, Moi Gomez, Victor Rodriguez, Lacina Traore, Burgui.

“Sporting have changed tactically all over the field and now perhaps they are more attacking. They are a dangerous side, as are all the sides down the bottom of the table because time is running out in the battle against relegation.”

– Luis Enrique, Barcelona.
