Sevilla – Girona : Preview & Prediction
Santander League continues and this Sunday afternoon Sevilla will play against Girona in a match that promises to be intense and fought from the initial whistle. A priori, Sevilla starts as a favorite, but analyzing the performance of the Catalans, we believe that the favorable result would be an equality. It is enough to review the last results of the Andalusians in the Sánchez Pizjuán not to trust blindly in their simple victory.
Actuality of Seville
The Andalusians are a team with good players but unreliable from the defensive. Just review the large number of goals received to confirm that the team is not balanced and will not be under the command of Montella coach. Of course, you need to accumulate wins to get the best way to the match against Manchester United for the 8th round of the Champions League (contest that will hardly qualify in the following season). It comes from losing 5-1 to Sevilla for the League and playing against Leganes for the semifinal round of the Copa del Rey (2-0 win and qualifying for the grand final).
Playing in the Sánchez Pizjuán, Sevilla has registered 6 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat, which was quite painful to be against Betis in the Andalusian classic (3-5). He does not win at home for the Spanish tournament 2 months ago, after equaling 0-0 against Levante, losing to the “verdiblancos” and drawing 1-1 against Getafe (both received in discount minutes). For the Copa del Rey, he defeated Atlético de Madrid 3-1 for the 4th and final
Actuality of Girona
As is already known, those led by Pablo Machín are combative and intense by nature, which is a pleasant surprise for Spanish football. The team almost always competes and bases its game on the effort of its players, which are tactical and combative despite not having great relevance in the market of passes. It comes from overcoming Athletic Bilbao 2-0 at home, reaching 31 units in total. His new goal is to fight to qualify for the Europa League.
Acting away from home, Girona has obtained diverse markers after winning 3 matches, equaling another 5 and losing the remaining 3 that played (13 goals scored and 16 transferred in their goal). His last victory in this condition occurred in mid-December when he defeated Espanyol 0-1. Subsequently, they lost 4-1 to Eibar, dropped 2-1 to Valencia, drew 1-1 against Atlético de Madrid and drew 0-0 against Málaga.
The only official match that both teams have sustained was in the first round of the championship and the victory belonged to the Andalusians (0-1 in the field of Girona with goal scored by Muriel). Of course, the Catalans could match the score if they did not miss a penalty in the discount minutes.
According to the odds, Sevilla leaves as a favorite due to the local factor and especially for the best players he has in his squad. However, if we consider the combative and intense style of the Catalans, we believe that the best option for this prognosis is equality. Remember that the Andalusians are not being reliable in the Sánchez Pizjuán, demonstrating it by adding 3 matches without winning against their people for the Spanish tournament (2 draws and 1 loss). Apart, do not forget that Girona has managed to steal several points as a visitor (consecutive draws against Atlético de Madrid and Málaga). Paint for the match to end without goals or 1-1 after the initial whistle, as Sevilla and Girona have what it takes to recover from a hypothetical initial disadvantage.
