Girona vs Racing Santander Preview

Girona vs Racing Santander predictions

The late game in the Segunda Division on Tuesday comes from Catalonia where Girona are entertaining Racing Santander. The hosts are gunning for promotion back to LaLiga at the first attempt while Racing are aiming to avoid an immediate drop back down into the Segunda B.

It wasn’t a dream start following the lengthy break to the season for either side. Girona picked up a goalless draw away to Las Palmas. That was their third straight draw in the league and while it did extend their unbeaten run to 8 matches, they will need to start converting one point into three a bit more regularly if they are going to seriously threaten the automatic promotion positions.

Girona will certainly see this as a ‘must win’ game against a Racing Santander side that has something of a mountain to climb if they are going to avoid relegation to the third tier. A home defeat against fellow strugglers Lugo in their first game back cast fresh doubt on their future at this level with 8 points now separating them from safety.

Racing to their credit have avoided defeat in over half of their away games but this looks like a tough ask for them here. Girona are a strong side and only Huesca can better their return of 34 home points so the Catalans will start as the clear favourites.

Girona vs Racing Santander Predictions

Score Prediction: 2-0 Girona

This is a very unpredictable league with not much separating any of the teams in terms of quality but the league table does clearly suggest that Racing Santander are a bit short in various departments. Any hopes they could really turn things around in this final part of the season took a big blow in their first game back and it’s hard to see them getting anything here against a team they have an awful recent record against.
