Espanyol to Win

At the moment, Girona is without a loss in their last five matches in La Liga, while Espanyol is without a win in their last six games in the league. Despite that, the two teams are only separated by four points in the standings.

On top of that, the quality of the two teams is pretty much similar and Espanyol enters this game after drawing with their city rivals Barcelona in the last round. They are also hosting the game, so we expect them to break the poor streak and finally get the three points.

Espanyol vs Girona – Recent Form, Potential Lineups and Team News

We expect to see an interesting duel between these two teams, so let's take a closer look at both if them ahead of it:

Espanyol

After failing to notch a win in their last six games in La Liga, Espanyol is currently just a couple of spots above the relegation zone and just one point ahead of the first team in it. On the bright side, Espanyol drew with Barcelona, their fierce city rival and league leader, in the last round, which can be a reason for their fans to be optimistic about the future.

Espanyol Predicted Lineup:

Fernandez – Gil, Gomez, Cabrera – Olivan – Exposito, Calero; Melamed, Darder, Braithwaite – Joselu

Girona

With two wins and three draws in the last five games in the Spanish top flight, Girona is clearly in good form. The team rose up the standings to reach the twelfth place with seventeen points form fifteen games, which is pretty solid for a newly promoted team and if they can keep their form going, they could avoid relegation battle this season.

Girona Predicted Lineup:

Gazzaniga – Martinez, Bueno, D. Lopez, Gutierrez – Couto, Martin, Herrera, A. Garcia, Riquelme – Castellanos

Player to Watch: Mato Joselu

The experienced striker is having another good season in La Liga and he is one of the main reasons why Espanyol remains competitive in this league, even though they are currently in the relegation zone.

Despite that, Joselu doesn't miss a beat and he managed to score eight goals in La Liga this season for the club in fifteen appearances, making him an obvious choice for our player to watch against Girona.
