Sevilla Vs Girona Betting Tips And Preview
This will be the only second competitive game between the two sides. Sevilla won the first meeting 1-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
Sevilla who have advanced to the final of the Copa Del Rey 2017/18, will host recently promoted side Giron this Sunday, in the La Liga Santander.
Sevilla lost 5-1 against Eibar, last Saturday, in their last league game. The Andalusian side were completely outclassed and outplayed in one of their worst games of the season. The defeat was their third in the league since the start of January. They have won two La Liga games this year.
After the crushing loss against Eibar, the Rojiblancos have already played the second leg of their semi-final tie with Leganes in the Copa Del Rey, which they won 2-0. Vincenzo Montella’s men won the semi-final 3-1 on aggregate and advanced to the final of the competition. They will face the challenge of defending champions FC Barcelona in the final.
Meanwhile, Girona won 2-0 at home, against Athletic Club, last Sunday in their last league fixture. A brace from Cristian Stuani secured all three points for his side. The win last weekend meant Pablo Machin’s side are now unbeaten in the last four games in the La Liga, having won two games in the process.
Machin’s men have scored nine and conceded just one goal in the last four league games. In fact, they have kept a clean sheet in each of the last two games. Girona have never kept three consecutive clean sheets in the top flight.
Sevilla vs Girona Betting Tips
At the moment, Sevilla are sixth in the La Liga table with 33 points. They have won 10, drawn three and lost nine league games so far. The Andalusian side have scored 28 goals in the league this season. Among the teams who are currently in the top half of the league table, the tally is the lowest.
Girona who are having their first ever journey in La Liga, are currently in the top half of the table. Machin’s side were expected to be in the mix of the relegation battle, and they have proved everyone wrong with exciting football this campaign. They have managed 31 points from 22 games played this season.
Since the start of 2011/12, only Espanyol have won more La Liga games on Sunday mornings than Sevilla. Sevilla have won 11 games compared to Espanyol’s 15, while Girona have won both their games played on Sunday mornings in the top-flight.
Ever Banega is suspended and ineligible to feature on Sunday. Simon Kjaer has been out with a back injury since the final week of January. The Danish defender is doubtful to play against Girona in the weekend.
Sebastian Corchia is out with a groin injury. Nolito is also carrying a groin injury. Daniel Carrico has not played this season due to a thigh injury. The Portuguese defender is back in training. However, he is unlikely to feature at all in this game.
