Girona vs Valencia Prediction & Betting tips
Girona is preparing for its last home game of the season, in which Valencia will be the opponent. Both teams have in fact already been played out, but that does not particularly affect the fans of the home team!
With the midweek 3-2 victory of Sevilla at Real Madrid, European football is no longer there for Girona. With only two games to go, the difference with number seven Sevilla is six points, but since the mutual result is to the detriment of the Catalans they can write seventh place on their belly. Still, the fans are planning a Saturday night party in the last home game of the season. That is quite right, because throughout Catalonia nobody had dared to dream that the small Girona would compete for European football with its debut at the highest level.
The big question is, of course, whether Girona can also take part in the upcoming season. There is a chance that the team will fall apart. The name of trainer Pablo Machin sings emphatically around Seville, while undoubtedly will be drawn to tasters like Cristian Portu and Cristhian Stuani. The king couple is jointly good for no less than thirty of the total of 42 competition goals of the red-witted. Incidentally, Portu is suspended this weekend, so Stuani will have to save Valencia by himself. Furthermore, Machin has access to almost his entire selection.
Valencia has been out of shape in recent weeks, witness the series of five games without victory. Yet last weekend the champagne could be uncorked, because because also number five Real Betis went down Los Che secured a coveted start for the Champions League. Not bad for a team that did not get beyond the twelfth place in the past two seasons. “Fantastic,” trainer Marcelino jubilated. ‘Outside Leicester City (fourteenth in the 2014-2015 season, champion in the 2015-2016 season) I can not call a team in the big European competitions that achieved as much progress as we did.’
Valencia celebrated the Champions League qualification with a midweek friendly match against Arab Al-Nassr, which had fortified itself for the occasion with illustrious names like Ronaldinho, Alessandro Del Piero and Deco. Goordoord was not there, though it was because the game was shortened by half an hour due to a sandstorm. Well, that’s the risk of the trade when you play football in the sandbox. Valencia has therefore been working on its PR this week and will undoubtedly have received some oil dollars, but this trip up and down to Saudi Arabia is of course not the ideal preparation for Girona-out.
