Deportivo vs Girona – La Liga : On the match that will close out this 9th round of La Liga…
Deprotivo La Coruña, coached by Pepe Mel, and Girona, managed by Pablo Machin, will meet in Coruña, at Estádo Municipal de Riazor,
in a match between the 15th and 17th places, respectively, with the two teams being separated by only 2 points going into this match.
Deportivo goes into this match in a somewhat fragile position on the league table, only having a 2-point advantage over the relegation zone, therefore maintaining their usual objective of avoiding relegation.
The team, still, is having their best moment of form of the whole season, getting 7 points of 12 possible on the last 4 rounds, with 2 wins, both at home, and a draw away from home, against Eibar.
That happened after a very negative start to the season, where they only had 1 point gained out of 12 possible.
As for Girona, they come into this 9th round affair in a tough situation, sitting just above the relegation zone, with the same points as Las Palmas, which is the first team on the relegation zone.
The team, after a somewhat positive start to their campaign in La Liga (drawing with one of the title contenders and beating Málaga), is coming off a series of 6 straight matches without a win.
Deportivo vs Girona – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The teams will meet in this match in two different moments of form, with the hosts being in good form, especially on the home matches, with 2 wins on their last 2 matches, while Girona is coming off a series of winless matches.
Since this is a match between two teams who prioritize defensive consistency and are fighting to avoid relegation, I believe this can be a low-scoring affair, so I believe in a goalless first half.
