Girona vs Malaga Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Girona made a spectacular debut to the La Liga 2017-18 campaign after managing a 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid in their first game. The newly promoted club appeared on their way to a major upset after gaining a 2-0 lead following a three-minute brace from Cristhian Stuani. However, late goals from Angel Correa and Jose Gimenez helped Atletico secure a point, despite being reduced to 10 men following Antoine Griezmann’s red card. Malaga suffered a 1-0 defeat against Eibar in their first league match of the season. Charles Diaz scored the only goal of the game in the 57th minute, while Malaga rarely threatened to come back in the game.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Malaga and Girona take on each other first time. The home draw against Atletico Madrid came against expectations, but it also displayed the kind of form one can expect from Girona at the Municipal de Montilivi. Last season, the club were able to manage 12 wins at home. They are up against a Malaga team who had a very poor away record last season with only two wins on the road. I would go with a surprise Girona win. Cristhian Stuani was able to come up with a brace in the game against Atletico Madrid. He is an experienced player who has been brought to the club from Middlesbrough. He has three goals in his 10 games against Malaga. He remains the biggest threat for Girona. I would go with Stuani to score anytime in the game.

Girona win – 23/20

Cristhian Stuani to score anytime – 2/1

Girona saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Girona have conceeded only 0 goals in their last 2 games against Malaga

Malaga have conceeded only 1 goals in their last 2 games against Girona

Girona Preview

Despite only manage a draw in the opening game of the season, Girona will be extremely happy with the result. Getting a point against Atletico Madrid, who finished third in the table last season, is a major feat. Girona also came close to securing a historic victory over Diego Simeone’s team. As a result, the club will be entering into the forthcoming matches with plenty of confidence. Manager Pablo Machin brought in Bernardo Espinoza as the club’s biggest signing in the summer. He has been able to bring in experienced La Liga campaigners like Carles Planas and Gorka Iraizoz.

Girona Team News

Aday is the only injury concern for Girona.

Malaga Preview

Malaga would be disappointed with a home defeat against Eibar. Last season, the club had a strong home form after managing 10 wins in 19 games. However, the club were able to manage only two wins on the road. The club suffered from numerous injury problems last season and also went through three managers. Even now, Malaga have a lengthy injury list and this prevents the club from making a major impact in terms of the starting line-up. Manager Michel has brought in Emanuel Cecchini as the biggest signing of the summer, but he might have to wait more for his debut.

Malaga Team News

Malaga have Miguel Torres (ankle), Robson Weligton (meniscus), Luis Munoz (thigh), Keko (calf), Emanuel Cecchini (hamstring), and Adalberto Penaranda Maestre (foot) unavailable due to injury.
