Girona vs Athletic Bilbao Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Girona made it three games unbeaten after being involved in a goalless draw with Malaga during the weekend. This was the second consecutive stalemate for Pablo Machin’s outfit, who had 11 shots at goal. Girona had two shots on target compared to Malaga, who could only get one effort on target despite being at home. Athletic Bilbao were involved in a third consecutive draw, as Eibar picked up a 1-1 draw at the San Mames. Aduriz provided the opening goal in the game with a 50th minute header, while Kike Garcia responded with an equaliser in the 73rd minute.

Betting Tips and Predictions

After two consecutive away matches, Girona are heading back to the Municipal de Montilivi – the scene of their biggest league win, a 6-0 success over Las Palmas. Athletic Bilbao are unbeaten in 10 games, but they are due a bad result. After all, Bilbao’s last defeat in the league came in an away match and Girona have won back-to-back games at home. I would go with a victory for Girona in this game.

Christian Stuani has returned to 1st team action. Even though he was unable to score in the recent goalless draw with Malaga, the Girona top scorer is the biggest threat in the game. Stuani has been able to score at least one goal in each of the last five games at the Municipal de Montilivi. I would back Stuani to score anytime in the game.

Girona win – 7/5

Christian Stuani to score anytime – 2/1

Girona have conceeded only 2 goals in their last 2 games against Athletic Bilbao

Athletic Bilbao have conceeded only 2 goals in their last 2 games against Girona

Girona Preview

Girona have been able to do well to remain in a position where they can finish in the top half of the table. This would have been almost unthinkable at the start of the campaign when the club were just promoted into the La Liga. Anthony Lozano turned out to be the key signing for Girona in the January transfer window after making the switch from the Barcelona B team for around €1.75 million. The forward will be hoping to help Girona add to the 29-goal tally in the first 21 matches. Girona have a couple of crucial matches coming up as they face opponents like Barcelona, Sevilla, and Athletic Bilbao.

Girona Team News

José Aurelio Suarez (shoulder) is the only player on the sidelines for Girona.

Athletic Bilbao Preview

The Athletic Bilbao outfit may be able to boast of an unbeaten streak that now stretches to 10 matches, but it is yet to make a significant difference in terms of the club’s league position. The La Liga 2017-18 standings still see Athletic Bilbao outside the top 10, although the gap between Bilbao and teams above them has diminished quite substantially in recent weeks. Manager Cuco Ziganda did not waste much time in replacing Aymeric Laporte, as Inigo Martinez has been brought in from Real Sociedad for €32 million. Aduriz leads the scoring charts at Athletic Bilbao with eight goals.

Athletic Bilbao Team News

Athletic Bilbao will be without Iker Undabarrene (cruciate ligament), Muniain (cruciate ligament), Oscar De Marcos (hamstring), and Mikel Balenziaga (thigh) due to injuries.
