  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Sporting Gijón
    • Racing Santander
    • 90+3' That was a game high on effort, but low on quality. Sporting had the better of it, but in truth neither team created enough to deserve to win.
    • 90+3' Pablo catches the ball easily and commences the last break of the match. Trejo crosses it in, Barral gets across the defender at the near post, but heads it well over. That's it and Sporting get their first point of the season.
    • 90+2' Diop breaks through the middle. He plays it to his left to Munitis, and his shot is saved at the expense of a corner by Pablo.
    • 90+1' Arana is carded for a professional foul.
    • 90' Three minutes added time and the Sporting fans are leaving. Poor clearance gives it to Diop, who hits a rasping drive that flies straight into Pablo's arms.
    • 89' Christian hauls down Trejo, who has been very impressive tonight. It's 25 yards out on the right....Sangoy with a pretty poor effort - it flies six yards over the bar.
    • 88' De las Cuevas plays down the line for Canella, but his low centre is cut out.
    • 87' Trejo rescues a ball by the touchline and nudges to Lora, whose cross is cut out. Pablo receives the ball and plays the winding down time trick of waiting until he's approached before picking up the ball. They're obviously happy with the draw.
    • 85' De las Cuevas jinks into the area, but he doesn't have enough options. He again gets the ball, but it's a poor attempt at a pass.
    • 84' Arana can't get a shot off from the edge of the area. Trejo gains possession, but his pass is misplaced and Racing come stright back.
    • 83' Barral canters up the wing. He challenges Francis who goes down as if shot, but Sporting have the foul. The freekick is terrible.
    • 82' Munitis is caught in the build up to that move and he ambles off the pitch in a huff. Racing have already made three subs so he'll have to play on...
    • 81' Diop plays the ball to Arana, he has a little bit of space and his right foot shot flies off the defender's shin and Pablo pulls off a fantastic save, plunging to his left to palm it over the bar.
    • 79' Sangoy has an effort that at first glance looks like it's flown into the back of the net, but in fact came back off the advertising hoardings and behind the goal. It wasn't even close in actual fact.
    • 78' Seranno crosses towards Stuani, but it's too close to Pablo, who throws out quickly to get the counter underway.
    • 77' De las Cuevas is in the thick of it again, but his shot just outside the area is dragged well wide.
    • 76' Ariel is replaced by Oscar Serrano.
    • 75' Trejo crosses it in and De las Cuevas charges in at the back post, but his jump lacks commitment and he heads wide.
    • 73' Sporting Sub: Gastón Sangoy replaces Ayoze.
    • 72' It's all Sporting now. De las Cuevas loses his footing but he still manages to get the shot in on target. It bounces ot he base of the near post with Tono completely beaten!
    • 71' Sporting Sub: Rivera is replaced by Nacho Cases
    • 70' Bernardo with a perfect interception. The ball is eventually played long to the big man Ariel in a very English style, but he can't hold it.
    • 69' Ariel wins the header and knocks it on for Stuani. He tries a flick over the defender's head, but it doesn't come off.
    • 68' Munitis with a good ball into Ariel in the area. He goes down really easily under a challenge claiming a penalty, but the ref's not interested.
    • 67' Alvaro makes a mistake and Trejo rushes into the area, but Alvaro does well to rescues the situation, just as Trejo is pulling the trigger.
    • 66' Ayoze is in a good position, but he loses the ball on the edge of the area. He commits a terrible challenge on Tziolis, ploughing his studs into the Racing player's ankle. It should be a red, but it's a yellow.
    • 64' Good strong header away by Bernardo. Racing go on the attack and Sporting are so high up the pitch. Stuani beats the offside trap and racse forwards. Pablo flies off his line and Stuani flicks the ball over the keeper, but he doesn't have the pace to get away from the covering defenders and they clear the bouncing ball.
    • 63' Canella brings down Arana when trying to get onto a ball near the Racing corner flag. Sporting get it right back though and Tziolis gets a yellow for bringing down the impressive Trejo.
    • 62' Barral climbs all over Alvaro and Racing get the freekick.
    • 60' A header down in a dangerous area to Trejo, but it's behind him and he has to play across rather than have a shot.
    • 59' Barral holds his back after being challenged in the air, but advantage played. Castro lets fly with a left footed shot from 25 yards. It's deflected and the 'keeper scrambles across to clear for a corner.
    • 58' Equally poor and Pablo catches at his near post.
    • 57' Munitis with a couple of laboured stepovers on the left toughline. He tries to get in a cross, but it's deflected wide for a corner...it comes in from Arana, it's terrible and he's lucky he gets anther chance...
    • 56' De las Cuevas gets the byline again and puts in a driven cross to the near post where Trejo meets it, but he's tracked all the way and it deflects out for a corner.
    • 55' Sportin attack again and Francis feels he has to clear with no one around him.
    • 54' Ariel turns his man way out on the right hand touchline and goes for a ludicrous shot on the volley, which flies staggeringly wide...30 yards wide probably.
    • 53' Racing Sub: Jairo is replaced by Arana.
    • 52' Diop beats a couple of men and puts Stuani clear down the right channel. He plays a good ball across the face of goal, but Ariel stops his run for some reason and his outstretched leg can't get there.
    • 51' Rivera plays wide to the diminutive Lora, who strokes it back to his defenders after being forced back.
    • 50' Jairo can't get past the more experienced Canella on the right as he tries to dart down the line.
    • 49' Christian lashes the ball out under pressure and Tono does similarly, giving it back to Sporting.
    • 48' Jairo makes progress down the right and wins his side a throw. Stuani has a shot, it's deflected into Munitis' path, but he's charged down.
    • 47' Cuevas out to Ayoze, whose ball back to Cuevas is good. He gets challenged in the area, but has another bite at the cherry, but his shot flies over the bar.
    • 46' Munitis gives away a very early foul as he challenges in the air.
    • 45+1' Rivera with a terrible shot from 30 yards, which ends up being more of a pass that doesn't quite make it past Alvaro. The ref blows on what has been a pretty terrible game other than the last five minutes.
    • 45' Ariel has a shot from a good position, but he hits wide.
    • 44' De las Cuevas gets to the byline from a Trejo pass. He crosses it in and Ayoze at the far post touches it onto the bar! He should have scored for sure.
    • 43' Rivera and Stuani battle for the ball with Rivera coming out on top. Diop is the latest Racing player to give it away and Trejo drives forward.
    • 42' De las Cuevas sprays out wide to Lora, whose cross it cut out at the near post.
    • 41' Rivera dinks the ball in towards Trejo, but the move breaks down and it's a goalkick.
    • 40' Bernardo with a thumping defensive header. Racing make their way up the pitch and Munitis plays a super cross in behind the defenders, but there's no green shirt able to get there. Stuani's the closest, but he slips.
    • 39' Trejo's again in the thick of the action. Jairo is dragged back and wins the freekick in his own half.
    • 38' Trejo slips in Ayoze on the right hand touchline, but he's caught half a yard offside.
    • 37' Trejo with a couple of smart, quick passes on the edge of the area, but Racing break it up.
    • 35' Ayoze puts the corner onto the edge of the six yard line, but a foul is gives for not very much.
    • 34' Ayoze swings it it and Bernardo has to stertch to head it over his own bar.
    • 33' Ariel holds the ball up and plays it wide. Racing lose the ball and Diop brings down Castro. A freekick for Sporting...
    • 32' Sporting Sub: Novo is replaced by Trejo.
    • 31' Nacho Novo this time goes down and he's signalling he can play no further part. He beats the floor in anger.
    • 30' Lora swings in a cross, but it's cut out. Sporting are well on top though and are finding space down their right hand side.
    • 29' Barral with a little change of direction, beating his first man, but he can't beat the second.
    • 27' Tono plays the ball out short to his defenders, but gets it back and this time wellies it upfield, gifting it back to Sporting in the process.
    • 26' Hernandez commits the foul. Munitis swings the ball in....it's a great ball, but Pablo gets a strong fist to it, hurting his own player in the process.
    • 25' De las Cuevas takes the shot on early from 25 yards, but he drags it well wide.
    • 24' Fernandexz gives the ball away in his own half and Sporting are again putting on the pressure. Castro puts the ball in, but Tono claims with ease.
    • 23' The referee plays a good advantage for Sporting, but De las Cuevas gets his pass all wrong and it's cut out.
    • 22' Stuani straght into the game and he plays to Diop, whose touch is sloppy and he brings down the covering defender.
    • 21' Racing Sub: Acosta again goes down and he is replaced by Stuani.
    • 20' Francis boots upfield under pressure, but Sporting come right back at them. Castro plays the ball out wide, Bernardo gets a head and then a foot to a couple of balls into the area.
    • 19' Barral wins the ball in midfield. Nacho Novo waits in the area for the cross, but it's too short.
    • 17' De las Cuevas puts in the free kick and Castro gets his head on the ball, but Tono makes a relatively comfortable save.
    • 16' A high challenge from Munitis is pulled up by the ref. Acosta is going to carry on for the time being.
    • 14' Pablo again races off his line to clea a ball over the top. Acosta has gone down holding his hamstring and it looks like he'll have to come off...
    • 13' More stroking it around in their own half from Sporting, but then they suddenly break down the left. A deep cross is put in for Nacho Novo, but it travels too deep and just out for a goal kick.
    • 11' Racing are putting no pressure on Sporting when they're in their own half, but press as soon as they cross the half way line. It is allowing them to break at pace though when they do get the ball as Sporting are pushing heigher.
    • 9' Ariel is caught offisde as he latches onto a knock down near the corner flag. He shrugs, reckoning it was a poor decision.
    • 8' Jairo races onto a through ball, but Pablo comes off his line well to clear for a throw in.
    • 7' Another hopeful ball from the half way line from Sporting and it travels comfortably into the hands of Tono.
    • 6' Tzioliz fouls Ayoze, but Sporting quickly lose possession...they get it back and a cross is whipped into the near post, but it's cleared by Alvaro.
    • 5' Ayoze concedes the throw in, then Canella does the same, for some reason deciding to clear on his own halfway line.
    • 4' Acosta commits the foul in the box and it's a free kick for Sporting, which is punted upfield by Juan Pablo.
    • 3' Jairo wins a corner for Racing as he darts down the right and puts in a cross...
    • 1' Sporting get us under way and are kicking from left to right. They start brightly, keepinghold of possession well.
    • 17:55 Racing have scored on their last nine league visits to El Molinón. Sporting have conceded the most headed goals in LigaBBVA this season (four). So expect a headed goal from Racing tonight…
    • 17:50 Sporting have won 17 of their league meetings with Racing in LigaBBVA, losing 18 and drawing four.
