Malaga will be confident of a victory which would secure a Champions League qualifying berth for next season.
The big spenders opened the door to Atletico Madrid in the race to finish fourth when they lost 2-1 to the subsequent Europa League winners last weekend.
But success in their final match of the campaign will give Malaga the chance to pit their wits against the finest teams on the continent next term.
It should be straightforward against a side 15 places below them in La Liga table, but Sporting Gijon still have something to fight for as they have an outside chance of avoiding relegation.
Four wins in six matches have just about kept Sporting’s heads above water, although they will realise there is no margin for anything but victory in this game.
Malaga unsurprisingly are 3/10 with Bet365
to take three points, with Sporting Gijon 8/1 and it’s 9/2 for a draw.
