Valencia – Girona
Valencia welcomes Girona in a match from the 18th round of the Spanish La Liga.
It’s a difficult moment for Valencia. The Los Che started the season in a brilliant way, but now they are in a pretty much a negative run. Marcelino’s team lost three of its four last matches, suffering defeats against Getafe, Eibar and Villarreal. Before this they have been unbeaten and they were moving very well in the league.
Now Valencia will have another chance to get back on the winning ways. A home game against Girona is a good opportunity for the home team to recover from these unpleasant performances of lately.
Right now Valencia are third in the La Liga standings with 34 points and a record of 10 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses.
Girona are positioned exactly in the middle of the La Liga standings. The Catalans are 10th in the table with 23 points and a record of 6 wins, 5 draws and 6 defeats. Just like Valencia, Girona also suffered a defeat in their last game, losing with 1-4 against Eibar away from home. It was one of their worst performances since the start of the season, so let’s see if they are going to be able to recover against a tough opponent like Valencia.
The home team can’t use the suspended Simone Zaza and Martin Montoya, while Jeison Murillo and Javier Jimenez are injured. Carlos Soler is still doubtful with an ankle injury.
Girona are currently with a full squad, which is great news for them before the visit to the Estadio Mestalla.
Valencia’s big goal this season is a finish in the Top 4 and a return to the Champions League. But they really have to improve their form, if they want to remain in the fight.
