Bolton vs Girona Prediction & Betting tips
An intense and fought duel will be fought between the English and Spaniards under the framework of an international friendly. In the previous one, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, since the two teams are offensive and vertical in their own way. Therefore, it should not surprise us that they can generate some chances and recover from a hypothetical initial disadvantage. Remember that the local has already played some games of preparation, while the visit is gradually trying to adapt to the departure of the successful coach Pablo Machín. Paint for the duel to finish 1-1 or 2-1 in favor of either side.
The campaign of the “whites” last season was very bad, after adding 43 points and save the decline in the last day of the Championship (second English division). The team achieved this goal after beating Nottingham Forest 3-2 on the hour after losing 1-2 with just a few minutes left for the final whistle. Thanks to that exceptional comeback, Burton and Barnsley ended up going to League One (third category of British football). A detail to consider the squad in the previous campaign is linked to its imbalance between lines (39 goals for and 74 against, proving to be a very poor eleven in defensive matters). Now the objective of coach Phil Parkinson is to set a more orderly and solid proposal at the time of scoring, despite the fact that several players have left the squad. At the moment he has not signed many players, it is very likely that he will fight for permanence again.
Continuing with the analysis, you should know that Bolton has already started with all the preseason, getting to add 2 friendlies so far. First he tied 1-1 at Atherton on Tuesday, July 10, then beat Halifax 1-2 on Saturday, July 14. At the moment it is maintaining the errors of the past championship, by scoring and conceding goals with relative ease. As a bonus, do not forget that the game will be played at the Leyland Country Ground Stadium, a small venue for professional football. However, we believe that the irregular pattern of the “whites” will remain regardless of the stadium where they play.
The Catalans will play their second season in the Spanish first division after a good season in their first experience. The team was placed in the tenth position with 51 points, remaining 7 to qualify for the next Europa League. Of course, had gusts of good and bad results, missing a certain balance between lines. In any case, he managed to get away from the descent quickly and never fought for his stay in the Santander League. A detail to consider the “red” box is that he lost coach Pablo Machín, who left for Seville due to the great campaign he did in the 2017-2018 tournament. Eusebio Sacristán, who managed the Real Sociedad without much success and whose goal is to recover his credit as coach, has arrived in his place.
If it is about reinforcements, Girona has started to move in the market and has signed some players to repower the squad. They have arrived Muniesa and the Colombian side Johan Mojica, who arrives from Rayo Vallecano. Of course, the crack “coffee” could not play with the club if it comes a good offer that exceeds what paid for his pass. As for the casualties, Pablo Maffeo left the institution and left for German Stuttgart. It is expected that Portu and Stuani will continue to be present in the squad, since both were fundamental in the last campaign. As an extra fact we tell you that the Spaniards will spend a few days of their preseason in England, settling in the sports city of Manchester City. In the middle of this trip they will play the friendly against Bolton and another against Oldham of the League One (third division). This rival and they faced it last year, reaching a 1-2 win in an adjusted manner.
No previous duels have been found between English and Spanish. This will be the first match they will dispute in all its history.
