Girona vs Valencia
Spain – La Liga
Date: Sunday, 10th March 2019
Kick-off at 15.15 UK/ 16.15 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
The mid-table of La Liga is a curious case as such. Just seven points separate the ten spots after the top-five. And consequentially, competition is at a very high level between these sides.
Girona just put an end to a terrible run and is slowly on a rebuilding phase. And they started it in style with a victory against Real Madrid, and just the last match-day, pulled a win over Barcelona too.
Valencia is a single point away from the final Europa League spot, currently in possession of Sevilla. The latter is going through one of the worst phases of their season, and this is the moment for Valencia to make a move for their position in league standings.

Girona vs Valencia Prediction
The Catalan side did record wins against Real Madrid and Barcelona. But it needs to be mentioned that Real is going through one of the worst periods in their history, and the win against Barca was in a friendly cup game, and against their B team nonetheless. Valencia will be a whole different challenge.
The team holds a 100% winning record at this venue and won two of the last three h2h encounters. Moreover, they are just a point away from usurping Sevilla from the last Europa League spot. It requires special mention that Sevilla is winless in their last five games, and lost four of their last five.
Valencia, who is winless in their last 11 matches on the trot, and in their last four on the road, will not let this opportunity go to waste. Expect them to avoid a loss at any cost this Sunday.
The match will not be one-sided though. The new-found form of Girona will surely play a role, and it’s almost certain that Valencia, who conceded goals in ten of their last eleven games away from home, will have their defense breached at least once this weekend.
