Girona vs Real Betis
Spanish La Liga
Date: Thursday, 27 September 2018
Kick-Off at 21:00 UK / 22:00 CET
Venue: Estadi Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
Girona completely turned their fortunes around after a rather dismal start to the new La Liga campaign. Blanquivermell looked towards a very challenging schedule after winning just one point from opening two ties against Real Valladolid and Real Madrid.
However, they managed to pick up an incredible seven-point tally from fixtures with Villarreal, Celta Vigo and Barcelona. Eusebio Sacristian’s men were especially impressive in the weekend’s 2-2 draw to Blaugrana at Camp Nou.
Christian Stuani was the catalyst to the rise in form. The Uruguayan striker bagged five goals in last three appearances for Girona, including a brace on Sunday evening at Camp Nou. Can he keep his stellar form going on Thursday against Real Betis?
Girona vs Real Betis: Head-to-head
Betis completely dominated this match-up over the course of history.
Los Beticos simply love to play at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi where they’ve won each of four H2H games against Girona.
Betis took four points from two head to head games in the previous term of La Liga.
Girona vs Real Betis: Prediction
Betis come into this unbeaten in last five games in all competitions, but they only won one in the process. They’ve made it without being prolific in the final third as three of last five games they played in all competitions ended in goalless draws.
The last one, however, saw a draw in a four-goal thriller against Athletic Bilbao at the weekend. The Basques were two goals up in the first half, but Markel Susaeta was sent off just before the interval.
Betis took the most of it by bagging two goals after the break and stretch the unbeaten record to five games. Can they resist the in-form Girona side on Thursday?
As Betis’ defensive line revealed the vulnerability by allowing two goals within the opening 45 minutes of the Bilbao clash on Sunday, we could see goals here. The value is strong with the red-hot Christian Stuani to score anytime for the hosts at the odds of 2.25. We’ll alternatively back Girona to win at 2.50.
