Burgos vs Girona
Spanish Segunda Division
Date: 29 May 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de El Plantio (Burgos).
Girona will be hoping to lock in a place in the promotional playoffs for the second year running in Segunda Division.
To do so, they need a win on Sunday evening away at Burgos. Any other scenario but their victory would leave Michel’s men exposed and dependent on the scorelines in the other games on the final day.
Nevertheless, Girona do come into this as clear favorites. They have shown a great performance in an easy and comfortable 2-0 victory over ten-man Mirandes last Saturday.
The main catalyst for the win was Christian Stuani who became the competition’s top scorer with the last weekend’s brace.
Can the Uruguayan forward get his Golden Boot award by scoring once again in this very important affair for his Girona.
Speaking of importance, this tie does not have any for Burgos who have nowhere to go in the Segunda Division standings.
Nevertheless, the current 10th position is an overwhelming score for Julian Calero and his men who played the third tier of Spanish football last season.
Burgos have easily kept the second-division status and they are ready to attack promotion next season. Can they harm promotional hopefuls Girona here? The answer is certainly positive, especially if we know they have lost only four matches on the home patch since the beginning of the season.
Burgos vs Girona Head-to-head
- This will only be the second head to head encounter between the two rivals.
- The first one was played in mid-December last year at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi where Girona celebrated an easy 3-1 victory.
Burgos vs Girona Prediction
Burgos took four points from the previous two rounds against FC Cartagena and Malaga, shipping just one goal in the process. They are very tough to break down in their own backyard and it will be very interesting to see whether highly-motivated Girona will have problems with them on Sunday.
However, with all due respect to Burgos and their great campaign in this term of Segunda Division, we can hardly predict anything else but the away win pick knowing that a victory secures a spot in the playoffs for Girona who are the stronger of the two teams.
