The match of the 18th round of La Liga between Girona and Barcelona will be held on January 28 at the stadium Montilivi.
Last week, Michela Sanchez’s side lost on the road to Villarreal, conceding the only goal of the game in the 100th minute. Before that, Girona did not lose in 7 consecutive matches in La Liga, winning 3 times and drawing 4 times. While the team is 11th and has only four points behind the three outsiders. At home, the Catalans have 5 meetings in a row without a loss in the championship – 2 wins and 3 draws. In the last 7 “Girona” home games in La Liga, both teams scored.
In the last two rounds, the team scored two wins, but was limited to a modest score of 1-0 in both games against Atletico (away) and Getafe (at home). Barcelona have a streak of eight matches without defeat in La Liga, in which the Catalans have won seven and drew once more. Javi Hernandez’s side continue to lead La Liga with a three-point lead over Real Madrid. In their previous 23 away matches, Barcelona had only lost once against Real Madrid (16 wins and 6 draws).
Girona’s games are among the most productive in the league, the team concedes at the level of the outsiders, while at the same time scoring as a representative of the top 4. Probably in the upcoming meeting we should expect a lot of goals, especially since we will be facing Barcelona, who will be trying to get 3 points to be out of reach of Real Madrid. The last 4 meetings between the opponents in the Primera have been productive, with Barcelona winning three times by a margin of 2 goals. I assume that the guests will again get the upper hand, with Javi Hernandez’s wards being able to score at least 2 times. Our prediction is “Barcelona win and a total of more than 1.5”.
