Girona vs Celta Vigo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Girona enter into this game after a 6-1 defeat against Barcelona. Portu capitalised on confusion in the Barcelona defence to open the scoring after just three minutes. Yet, the response from Ernesto Valverde’s team was emphatic as a hat-trick from Luis Suarez, a brace from Lionel Messi, and a goal from Philippe Coutinho provided a huge win. Celta de Vigo picked up a first win in four after a 2-0 success over Eibar. Iago Aspas scored from close range in the 56th minute to put Celta in front. The hosts doubled the advantage with 11 minutes left, as Maxi Gomez scored the second of the evening.

Betting Tips and Predictions

These two teams were involved in a remarkable 3-3 draw earlier in the campaign. However, Girona are in line for a victory in this game, as they have been rather strong at the Municipal de Montilivi this season; Machin’s team are going for a fifth straight home win. Celta de Vigo have lost two consecutive away matches and have been dependent on games at the Balaidos for the results. I would back Girona for a win. Christian Stuani missed the game against Barcelona, but he is expected to be back for this encounter. Girona’s top scorer, Stuani has 13 league goals and has been able to find the back of the net in the last seven matches at the Municipal de Montilivi. Stuani was also on the scoresheet earlier in the campaign against Celta, and I would back him to score anytime.

Girona win – 6/5

Christian Stuani to score anytime – 10/7

Girona Preview

Girona have done extremely well up until this point, but there is a danger of the heavy loss against Barcelona having a cascading effect on the remaining La Liga 2017-18 matches. Girona have now suffered two defeats in the last three games – albeit both coming on the road. Manager Pablo Machin will be extremely confident about his team’s ability at the Municipal de Montilivi, as they have suffered just four home defeats this season. Girona have been hugely dependent on Christian Stuani and Portu for the goals this season. Both players have scored a combined 23 goals – or more than 65% of their total league goals.

Girona Team News

Jose Aurelio Suarez (shoulder) is the only injury concern for manager Pablo Machin.

Celta Vigo Preview

Celta de Vigo were able to get a crucial victory over Eibar during the weekend. If not for the victory, Celta de Vigo could have been staring at a place outside the top 10 going into the next match. Now, the club have been able to jump a couple of places into the seventh spot. The massive leap made by the club in recent weeks will certainly raise the profile of manager Juan Carlos Unzue. In terms of recent form, Celta will be placed in the fifth position after having taken 10 points from six matches. It is incredible that Celta were 15th in the table after the draw with Real Madrid in the second week of January. Once again, there is a huge dependency on Iago Aspas and Maxi Gomez for the goals. Both have come up with 29 goals out of the 43 scored by the club.

Celta Vigo Team News

Andreu Fontas (hamstring) and Diego Alende (ligament) are the two players unavailable due to injuries.
