Ath Bilbao – Girona : Preview & Prediction
Athletic Club on the third-last place in the standings is obviously not a usual thing: the Basques started the season with the handbrake pulled and now they are trying to do everything to get back on their feet. The point is that it is not easy to find rhythm and it will be even less against a team like the Girona that, conversely, seems to live a truly exceptional period. It will not be easy for Athletic Club to stand for an opponent who has shown he can compete at high levels and be particularly comfortable when playing away games. An additional warning for an Athletic Bilbao that instead can not even exploit the field factor as it happened once …
The Basques, in fact, have won only one of the seven games played so far in what historically has always been their “fort”.
In four of the remaining six games played at home, Athletic Bilbao ended in a draw, while two were the losses on the scoresheet.
The Girona can boast a unique record: no one in Liga, in fact, is still unbeaten in games played away, not even Barcelona.
And by the way, the Girona came out undefeated also from the Camp Nou: against the azulgrana a spectacular race and full of twists, ended 2-2.
Athletic struggles to keep the door unbeaten at home (there are eleven goals scored in seven games), the away Girona scores regularly (eight in six).
San Mames is an awkward field for anyone, but Girona has already shown that it has the personality to withstand some kind of pressure. Athletic seems to be growing, but to be tested against level opponents. And the Girona is now. We choose Gol Team Away Yes.
