Fresh off the back of a ultimately comfortable but at times punishing 4-1 win over local rivals Atletico Madrid, Real will be hopeful of having a more comfortable task this time round when they go up against a Sporting Gijon side struggling to keep their head above water.
With 12 points from their first 13 games so far Manuel Preciado’s side sit in third from bottom of the league, just three points clear of bottom club Racing Santander.
Worryingly for the home side their defensive record is atrocious having conceded 21 goals so far this season – one of the worst defensive record in the league – and to add to their worries they face a side in the goalscoring form of their lives.
Madrid, led by the irrepressible Christiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain, have found the net an astonishing 46 times, including 13 in their last three games in all competitions, and the away side will certainly looking to seriously add to their already impressive goal difference.
They face a concern going into the game, with former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso will miss the game after picking up five yellow cards already this season. While much of the praise goes to the attacking line up for their goalscoring exploits it is Alonso that has been at the heart of their form.
Another former Premier League star will miss the game, with Ricardo Carvalho, with the Portuguese defender twisting his knee as he neared his return from a longer injury absence.
