Espanyol vs Girona Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
In the last clash of this week’s matchup, Espanyol will host Girona at the RCDE Stadium. This is a duel between two sides from the middle of the table so the outcome of it will heavily impact the look of it.
Espanyol are placed fifteenth at the table with sixteen accumulated points from four wins, four draws, and six losses. They have a negative goal difference of -7. Their form seems to be in decline as they have lost three of the four most recent matches. In the last round, they lost to Eibar by the score of 3-1. Both teams had an equal amount of chances, but Eibar were able to capitalize their attempts and score three goals. Kike, Alejo, and Jordan scored for Ebiar, and on the other side the only goal scorer was Enrich who scored an own-goal in the seventy-ninth minute of the game, thus setting the final result.
Girona hold the number twelve spot and have seventeen points. They have ended their unbeaten streak in the last round when they lost to Alaves, one of the worst teams in the league, by the score of 2-3. Stuani and Juanpe scored one goal each for Girona. Everything looked good up until the seventy-first minute of the game when Alaves started their comeback. Ibai scored a hat-trick and secured an incredible win for his team, thus giving them some hope of progressing up in the table standings. Girona are safely placed in the middle part of the table and would probably settle for anything else than a loss.
These two teams have played just three matches in their mutual history. The first one occurred in 2013 and Espanyol were victorious in that game. They have played two matches after that, one in 2014 and the other in 2015. Girona have won both of those matches. Espanyol have been playing really good at their ground in the past weeks, so it will be a real challenge for Girona to change that in the upcoming clash.
Espanyol don't have many missing players for the match against Girona. Sergio García is injured and he will not play on this match. Javi López is not fully fit and he is doubtful for the match. All other players are fully fit and ready to play.
On the other side Girona have several missing players for this game. Jose Raymundo Luis Suarez, Pedro Alcalá, Bernardo Espinosa, Olarenwaju Kayode and Marc Muniesa are injured and they can't play on the match. All other players are available to play and they are highly motivated for this game.
