Girona vs Espanyol
Spanish La Liga
Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Estadi Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
La Liga’s Saturday schedule will begin with a small Catalan derby between Girona and Espanyol. The game kicks off exactly at noon at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi where both sides will be hoping to return to winning ways after recent failures.
The hosts lost two in a row against Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid. They are now just five points above the red zone line and a potential defeat here could further complicate their situation in a potential relegation scrap.
Espanyol head into this winless in last four league outings. They are also yet to secure a new top flight campaign being just one point above Saturday’s counterparts in the bottom half of the league standings. The Budgerigars found goals hard to come by recently as they bagged no more than two in last four fixtures.
Girona vs Espanyol: Head-to-head
Girona were more successful in a short history of their head to head encounters with the Budgerigars.
Blanquivermell won four and lost two of six meetings with Espanyol.
Only three of these six ties were official competitive affairs and Girona won two of these three.
The streak includes this term’s 1-3 victory for Blanquivermell away at RCDE Stadium back in late-November last year.
Girona vs Espanyol: Prediction
Eusebio Sacristian will hope to see his side finally keep things quiet at the back after they shipped two goals in three of last four league affairs. The fact they go up against attackingly modest Espanyol side promises for the hosts who also have the H2H record speaking in their favour.
This is an important clash for both sides and we expect a rather more careful approach by both managers on Saturday. The draw somehow pops up as the most logical of three betting outcome options based on teams’ recent form. Under 2.5 goals FT is the main pick at 1.66, though.
