La Coruna vs Girona Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
An interesting match awaits us this Monday when Deportivo La Coruna will host Girona at the Estadio Riazor. This is a match two teams which are trying to keep themselves safe out of the relegation zone.
Girona still has just one win in La Liga this season. Their start to the season has not been a great one. They have lost four matches, won one and drew three two so far. They are placed seventeenth at the table and have a negative goal difference of -6. Last week they lost to Villarreal by the score of 1-2. Bakumbu opened the goal scoring sheet and netted two in the first twenty minutes of the game, Stuani of Girona scored just before the halftime and with that goal set the final score. If they fail to get a single point form this game they are likely to fall into the relegation zone.
Deportivo La Coruna are placed fifteenth at the table and have a negative goal difference of -7. They have lost four games, drew two and won just two games so far in the league. They have a two-game unbeaten streak, as they have won their game against Getafe with the score of 2-1, and then went on to draw against Eibar last week in a goalless game. If they fail to get a single point form this game they are likely to fall into the relegation zone.
When it comes to recent meetings between these two teams, the point distribution has been somewhat equal. Out of the five games that these two sides have played through their history, Deportivo La Coruna have won two, same as Girona, and one game has ended as a draw. It is worth noting that both of the two wins by Deportivo were in 2011. In the last three matches, Girona were victorious. The last match that they played was in June of 2014 and that game ended 3-1 for Girona.
