Girona vs Eibar
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 5th May 2018
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
Girona’s hopes of qualifying for the Europa League is almost over after the 1-1 draw with Getafe last Sunday. They are now 8th in the table, 6 points outside the top six.
It has been the recent form that pushed them out of contest with a modest 5 points coming from the last 7 games. Home form is not good either with 2 defeats and a draw from the last three.
Still, this is not a bad season for Girona, since this is their first stint ever in the Spanish La Liga.
Eibar is another team that saw a dramatic twist in fortunes in the second half of the season. They bagged a draw at Valencia last week, but were very lucky to be honest and now sit with 1 win from their last 9.
Despite the troubled times, Eibar are 12th in the standings, 4 points behind their Saturday’s hosts. Even with win in remaining three games, the Armeros will finish outside the top six.
Girona vs Eibar: Head-to-head
Eibar won 4-1 when the teams met earlier this season, which happened to be their first ever meeting in the La Liga.
The teams met 4 times in the Segunda Division previously and Girona were unbeaten during that time with 2 wins and 2 draws.
Eibar scored at least once in each of the five games against their Saturday’s hosts so far.
Girona vs Eibar: Prediction
Both teams are in poor shape, but one of these sides can turnaround their fortunes on Sunday.
Having said that, Girona defensive record at home is not bad this season. They concede at the rate of 1 goal per game, which is a better stat in comparison with Eibar who are conceding 1.6 goals per game on the road. There will be no doubt that this will be a cat and mouse game. So, out top pick has to be a home win by exact 1 goal margin.
