Sporting de Gijon vs Real Madrid Match Result

Real Madrid left it late against Sporting Gijon at the Estadio Municipal El Molinón in Gijon, but had Gonzalo Higuain to thank as he pounced on an error from the excellent Juan Pablo with ten minutes remaining.

The hosts started the match brightly and were not afraid to attack Real Madrid but this ploy was soon worked out by Madrid who began to threaten on the counter attack and it wasn’t long until they made their first real chance when Gonzalo Higuain hit the post after being put through by Angel Di Maria.

Ozil then blasted over from 8 yards when it seemed easier to score.

Sporting to their credit were not intimidated and created a magnificent chance of their own when Diego Castro crossed from the left after a brilliant run down the same flank. He found Carmelo but the striker didn’t catch the ball fully from the edge of the six yard box and a great chance was wasted.

As the half wore on chances became a rarity though Nacho Novo did try a 40 yard lob on Iker Casillas but as you would expect the Spain international was more than equal to the effort.

Then just before the break Sangoy had a cross cut out by Ricardo Carvalho and luckily for the visitors the Portuguese was in the correct position as Carmelo was waiting to put Sporting ahead, but as a result of some brilliant defensive work by Carvalho the teams went in level at the break.
