Girona vs Barcelona Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Girona were involved in a goalless draw with Leganes in the midweek action. It was a game that did not see too many excellent opportunities for both clubs, but each team had struck the post in the game. Alexander Szymanowski hit the post early in the game, while Juanpe came closest from a corner in the second half. Barcelona overpowered Eibar with a 6-1 win at the Camp Nou. Lionel Messi produced an astonishing performance and scored four goals, while Denis Suarez and Paulinho came up with the other goals. Sergi Enrich scored the only goal for Eibar, who hit the post two times in the game. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The impressive performances from Barcelona is likely to lead to an overwhelming win, while the club have not been too reliable at the back. Eibar could have easily scored three goals at the Camp Nou on any other day. However, Girona have been poor going forward with just three goals in five. Even though all of their league goals this season have been at home, Barcelona’s defence will be far superior. I would go with a clean sheet for Barcelona. Lionel Messi once again scored the first goal for Barcelona in the midweek action. The Argentine is now on to nine goals for the campaign and is the top scorer in the La Liga 2017-18 goalscoring charts. I would go with Messi to score the first goal.

Barcelona clean sheet – 11/10

Girona Preview

Girona have been doing reasonably well in their first La Liga campaign. An away draw against Leganes is not a bad result by any stretch of the imagination, as it prevents one of their relegation rivals from pulling ahead. The result also helped Girona get some confidence under their belt after back-to-back defeats. The only worry for manager Pablo Machin may be the lack of goals for his team in the three matches. Girona have not been prolific in front of goal and this could emerge as a problem as the season progresses. For the time being, the club are sitting comfortably out of the drop zone in this early stages of the campaign.

Girona Team News

David Timor (foot) and Carles Planas (physical discomfort) are the players unavailable for Girona.

Barcelona Preview

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde will be delighted with the way the La Liga 2017-18 campaign has been shaping up for his team. Apart from being imperious in front of goal and being able to thrash their opponents, Barcelona have also been helped by results elsewhere. The club have already established a seven-point advantage over rivals Real Madrid. As a result, the club are looking likely to get back to the La Liga title after finishing as the runners up last season. The most impressive element of Barcelona this season has been the sheer number of goals, and Neymar may already be forgotten at the club. Messi is already on nine goals for the campaign.

Barcelona Team News

Ousmane Dembele (hamstring) is the only player unavailable for manager Ernesto Valverde.
