Girona vs La Coruña Soccer Prediction Today
Having the opportunity to enter the classification block for European tournaments, Girona opens this Friday, March 9, the twenty-eighth round of the Spanish Championship 2017/2018 edition. At the Montilivi Municipal Stadium, in Girona, you will receive La Coruña, which is in the relegation zone, starting at 17h (Brasília time).
With 1-0 wins (at home against Celta) and 2-0 (against Villarreal), Girona came to the elite LaLiga squad. Reaching 40 points (12 wins, five draws and ten losses), he took seventh place and ‘slipped’ right into Villarreal, which closes the European championship block in sixth place.
With eleven rounds remaining, the team, which started the season thinking only of escaping from relegation, remains hoping to reach an unprecedented level. Although this fight still involves Eibar (39 points), Celta (38), Betis (37) and Getafe (36).
This situation, however, puts the Girona in a rather different situation for the departure of this Friday. Usually the team enters without obligation of victory in their games and can stand planting in the defense and explore the counterattacks. Against La Coruña, he will take on the role of protagonist having victory not only as a goal, but almost an obligation to keep his dream alive.
The last five home games showed the team has matured in that direction. It was five wins. I am thus considered the ninth best entrant of the current LaLiga season.
Coach Pablo Machin has four medical problems to climb his team to this Friday’s duel. This group has only one starter, midfielder Aday (21 games in the 2017/2018 Spanish Championship, one goal). The others are goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz (nine games); and defenders Pedro Alcala (five games, one goal) and Carles Planas (five games, no goal).
Without winning a victory since December 9, La Coruña is in a very difficult situation in the fight against relegation. With four draws and eight defeats in the last 12 rounds of LaLiga, he remains steeped in the sticking region.
He has 19 points (four wins, seven draws and 16 losses). It is in the nineteenth (penultimate) position. It is not only in a worse condition because the closest rivals in the fight for permanence in the elite division of Spanish football present similar use.
In practice, four teams fight for a chance to escape. At the moment, this seat is Levante, seventeenth place, with 21 points. Soon after, there is Las Palmas (20) and, finally, the virtually demoted Málaga (13).
This allows La Coruna to leave the sticking zone, although temporarily, if they win on Friday. His performance as a visitor, however, is not able to fuel many hopes. Of the 39 points that disputed in that condition, it reached only six (one victory, three ties and ten defeats).
Coach Cristóval Parralo also has medical problems to climb the team. All of them in midfield. Federico Cartabia (19 matches in the 2017/2018 Spanish Championship, two goals), Exposito (three games, no goal), Guilherme (23 matches, no goal) and Federico Dipetta (19 matches, no goal) .
