Girona vs Athletic Bilbao – La Liga: In one of this Sunday afternoon’s matches in Spain, counting towards La Liga’s 22nd round.
The local side Girona and the visiting side Athletic Bilbao face off in Girona, at the Estádio Municipal de Montilivi, on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd time this season,
with their previous meeting on the first round of the competition finishing with a 2-0 win for the Basque team at home.
The home side is in 10th place of the league table, with 28 points, while the visiting side is in 12th place with 27 points conquered.
The home side is exactly in the middle of the league table, and they are making a very positive campaign so far,
especially if we consider that they were just recently-promoted to the Spanish top tier, currently having a very comfortable advantage over the relegation zone,
which gives the team a stability for what’s left of this competition, and the possibility of qualifying for a European competition isn’t that far-fetched.
The team is coming off a globally positive streak of results, managing to batter Las Palmas 6-0 and drawing away at Atlético de Madrid all in the last 2/3 weeks.
As for the visiting side, they are making a relatively positive campaign so far, although their presence on the European competitions has made the team resent itself in terms of performances domestically,
with the team staying on the bottom half of the league table, but, still, being not very far from the European qualification zone.
Girona vs Athletic Bilbao – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Between two teams that present averages of goals scored and conceded relatively high and with each team’s “Over” records (60% of Girona’s matches at home ended with Over 2.5 Goals, w
hile more than half of Bilbao’s matches away from home also ended with more than 2 goals), I expect a match with at least 2 or 3 goals, with both teams trying to play positive football and with some goal scoring chances.
