The 35th round in Spanish LaLiga will start Friday evening from 19:45 with a very interesting game between Villarreal and Sporting Gijon.
The Yellow Submarine had a good campaign so far and Villarreal want to secure the 5th spot at the moment. There are four remaining games and they have no real chance for the Top 4, to be honest. The hosts have an iron defense, conceding only 27 goals in 34 games. Anyway, they did better away from home, conceding only ten goals in 17 trips. Villarreal won the reverse fixture, 3-1 away.
Sporting Gijon have won only one of the last twelve league matches and now they likely to relegate after a decent first part of the season. They have six points below red line at the moment, with four remaining rounds and it seems very difficult to avoid relegation. Gijon have the third worst defense in the league, conceding 67 goals in 34 games. More than that, the visitors won only one trip this campaign in LaLiga.
