Girona – Espanyol – 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 them and our predicted Girona vs Espanyol lineups:

Girona

Although Girona hasn't been in great form recently with three losses in the last six matches, along with a couple of wins and a draw, this is a newly-promoted team and the fact that they are in the 12th place in the standings at the moment clearly tells us that they had a good season overall, at least so far.

When it comes to team news, Joel Roca, Yangel Herrera, Aleix Garcia, Yan Couto, Alexander Callens, and Ibrahima Kebe are all out with injuries right now.

Girona Predicted Lineup:

Gazzaniga – A. Martinez, Bueno, D. Lopez, Gutierrez – Tsygankov, Martin, Romeu, B. Garcia, Riquelme – Castellanos

Espanyol

With two wins and four losses in the last six games in La Liga, Espanyol has clearly been struggling lately, although those two wins did help the team stay outside of the relegation zone. That being said, they are the first team outside of it and just one point ahead of the first team in the relegation zone, so Espanyol fans will likely have a stressful final stretch of the season.

Meanwhile, Gori, Adria Pedrosa, Keidi Bare, and Ronael Pierre-Gabriel are out with injuries at this time, while Leandro Cabrera is suspended.

Espanyol Predicted Lineup:

Pacheco – Vidal, Montes, Gomez, Gil – Vinicius, Darder – Puado, D. Suarez, Braithwaite – Joselu

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.
