Holding a one-goal cushion from their first leg victory earlier this week, Girona will look to get the job done and earn their playoff final berth on Sunday. They face an Almeria side who were firmly second best on Thursday and want to atone for their display here.

With just one win in their last six, will this prove one step too far for Jose Manuel Gomes' men? Only time will tell – but the signs are far from encouraging. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Almeria vs Girona Betting Tips

Who else but Christian Stuani? The Uruguayan forward applied the finishing touch to an excellent team move, for his 30th goal of the campaign. At 33-years-old, this is Stuani's best goalscoring season of his career. After netting 19 La Liga goals last term, he's determined to help propel them back into Spain's top-flight at the first time of asking.

Nonetheless, it's important to take one game at a time. Head coach Francisco Rodriguez will be stressing that to his players, considering their inconsistent form in patches across 2019-20.

Samu Saiz, once of Leeds, and creative midfielder Borja Garcia were among Girona's better performers in the first leg.

However, central defender Juanpe was perhaps their best on a busy evening. He'll be expected to deliver a similarly impressive display here as Almeria have a slender deficit to overturn. With attackers like Darwin Nunez (16 goals), Jose Carlos Lazo (nine goals) and assist leader Jose Carpos (five), they're certainly capable.

Whether they'll manage to do so though, remains to be seen. In 13 H2H meetings, Almeria have won seven – but lost 1-0 in their last two and won just once since March 2016.

Almeria vs Girona Correct Score Predictions

It wouldn't be surprising to see Almeria adopt a gung-ho approach here, considering they simply weren't good enough on Thursday. Girona are undoubtedly dangerous but have been inconsistent enough that a slender advantage can be overturned. I'm going safe with BTTS, given what's at stake for both.
