Girona vs Alaves
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 12 January 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Estadi Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
Alaves continued their dream season at the start of the year as they saw off Valencia 2-1 at home last weekend. The win helped the team break back into top four in the league ladder after Real Madrid’s unexpected home slip-up against Real Sociedad.
Babazorros will be looking to extend the winning streak to three straight games on Saturday evening when they travel to Catalunya to take on Girona at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi.
Abelardo’s troops showed great fighting spirit to come back from conceding an early opener against the Bats. Borja Baston and Tomas Pina completed the first half comeback for Babazorros who managed to keep their net untouched after the interval.
Alaves were generally very tough to break down in recent weeks. They allowed just one goal in past three league affairs. Will they maintain such fine defensive form against Blanquivermell?
Girona vs Alaves: Head-to-head
These two likes played each other just recently in Copa del Rey last 32 round.
The first leg at Mendizorroza ended in a 2-2 draw, while the reverse fixture saw a 2-1 win for Girona on the home patch in December.
Each of last four head to head games between these two likes saw both teams scoring as well as three or more goals.
Girona vs Alaves: Prediction
The hosts began the season in a promising fashion, but their form saw somewhat of a slide of late. They dropped down to 9th place in the league ladder after a run of two losses and two draws in last four league outings. Girona drew 2-2 away at Levante last weekend as they shipped the 86th-minute equalizer.
Alaves conceded only ten goals in nine away fixtures this term. They allowed only one goal in past three league ties and will no doubts come into this in higher spirits. You can back the visitors not to lose at 1.70 odds as our top betting recommendation here.
