Girona vs Villarreal Prediction
Girona made their way into the round of sixteen following their dramatic 4-2 win over Cartagena in the previous round. The scores were level at 2-2 at the end of the ninety minutes in that latter matchup.
However, the hosts kept themselves in the competition by firing in two more goals towards the end of the second quarter of extra-time.
Meanwhile, Villarreal were in for some late drama in their respective matchup with Orihuela as well. The visitors broke the deadlock ten minutes after the hour mark, only for their counterparts to equalize in the 83rd minute.
Nevertheless, the guests had their blushes saved by Gerard Moreno who found the winning goal in the dying stages of extra-time.
It is also worth mentioning that Villarreal have been resilient in their fixtures as of late. Impressively, the visitors have stumbled just once in their past seven games in all competitions.
Furthermore, the guests have not admitted defeat on the road since their 2-1 loss to Valencia back in November. To make matters worse for the hosts, Girona have been at the losing end in each of their last two meetings with this foe here.
Taking into account that the home team are also part of a far inferior domestic campaign, count on Villarreal to come away with the win at the last blast of the whistle.
Additionally, Girona have been causing all sorts of problems in the final third, especially in their recent clashes at home. They have found the back of the net eight times from their last four games here alone.
On the other hand, Villarreal have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet as well, and have scored two goals or more in three of their previous four outings.
As such, expect both teams to rack up the goals tally in this one.
