Girona vs Barcelona: prediction for the La Liga fixture
On January 28, Girona will host Barcelona for the La Liga clash. What to expect from the upcoming game? The answer is in our prediction.
Despite a saved penalty in extra-time, 10-men Girona suffered a 0:1 defeat to Villarreal last Sunday. Referee gave another penalty at the 100th minute, which sealed team's fate. That result put an end to club's longest unbeaten run in La Liga. Michel Sanchez said that his team deserved a point out of this game, so hosts are hoping for a positive result in a Catalan derby.
Hosts are unbeaten for five consecutive home matches. The Red-Whites currently have five victories and six draws, delivering 21 points and an 11th position in the standings.
Bueno, Kebe, Lopez and Reinier will miss the upcoming game.
On Wednesday, Barcelona managed to advance into the semi-final of Copa del Rey without any problems. A victory over Real Sociedad (1:0) extended Barca's unbeaten run and proved team's ability to remain successful even without Robert Lewandowski.
The Blaugranas are known for their offensive game, but they are also successful on defense in the current season - Catalan side conceded only six goals so far in the season. Xavi's men secured five of 14 recent La Liga victories by a 1:0 score. Visitors have 14 victories and two draws, delivering 44 points and a top position in the standings.
Torres and Lewandowski will miss the upcoming game.
