Las Palmas stay in the relegation spots after lost 3-1 at Sporting Gijón on Sunday. The Asturians got off to a flying start, Javi Varas saving from Halilovic and Jorge Meré looping a header onto the bar before Sanabria opened the scoring, the striker having the easiest of tap-ins after Varas could only push out a shot from Jony. A few minutes later though Cuéllar had to save from Araujo and Tana, and with seven minutes to go to the break El Zhar got on the end of a long Garrido centre to poke home the equalizer. Both teams had chances after the restart, but with twenty minutes left on the clock Aythami was sent off for a second bookable offence, and Sanabria took advantage to score two more to complete his hat-trick, both goals coming from Jony assists.
