Girona v Sevilla – Betting Preview
Girona’s overall mood and confidence is good, and the season is until now, matching expectations.
That said, the manager Míchel was upset and blasted their second-half display against Espanyol last weekend in the 2-2 draw. Moreover, he pointed the finger of blame at their defence as costing them vital results this season.
At the Estadi Montilivi, Girona will be set on a win here in their ongoing attempt to move away from the drop zone.
Girona is seven straight league games without a clean sheet but welcomes back midfielder rock Oriol Romeu from a suspension. Castellanos is however now missing due to a ban.
The mood is nervous and desperate at Sevilla who are despite a rare win at home last weekend, are still embroiled in a relegation battle. Sevilla is determined to move up the table and focus on the top six as opposed to looking behind them at the drop zone.
Courtesy of a 2-1 win at home to Getafe, they come into the match on a positive note and will be set on a victory here.
It is important to note that the team spirit and dressing room is united in the club, and the players are behind the boss.
Despite inconsistent results and form, Sevilla has almost always shown good levels of commitment and desire to compete and win games.
There continues to be a large number of men missing for Sevilla, though only Telles is important.
Looking at the 1×2 market first. The favourite for this game is the home side Girona @ 2.45. Sevilla travel in good spirits after a much-needed win over Getafe, they are @ 3.05 to grab the victory. A draw is priced @ 3.35.
Moving onto the Asian handicap market for this contest. The home side are giving away a -0.25 start, meaning a draw would pay Sevilla +0.25 @ 1.80 as a half win should they draw, and a full win if they get all 3 points. Girona -0.25 at home is the team in better form and with positive team news. They can be backed @ 2.08 and if the game ends all square then Girona backers only lose half of their stake. A win naturally returns a full win at a nice odds against price.
Looking at The Under/Over market last of all which looks well set at 2.25. Girona are going to go for the win and while this Sevilla side rarely sit back and play for a draw, they would probably shake on that now and settle for 1 point each before kick-off. The timing of the first goal is important, no strong view at all on this line. Over 2.25 is @ 1.80 and Under is @ 2.03.
