Elche vs Girona Preview

Elche vs Girona predictions

There’s just one Friday game in the Spanish Segunda Division this week but it’s a big one as two promotion hopefuls clash at the Estadio Martínez Valero. Elche and Girona are both probably a bit too far back now to challenge for automatic promotion and will have their sights set on hanging onto a play-off position over the remainder of the campaign.

Neither side has won since the resumption so the pressure is starting to build on these two teams to get back into their groove again. Elche head into this one on the back of a bitterly disappointing 2-1 defeat away to Ponferradina, another of the sides hoping to break into the top six. They’ve actually taken the lead in both games since the restart but will be disappointed to only have one point to show for their efforts.

As for Girona, the fact that they are now unbeaten in 9 games won’t come as any great consolation to their fans who have watched two frustrating goalless draws since the restart. Indeed it is now four straight draws for the Catalans and their automatic promotion hopes have faded over that period to the point where even their status in the top six may come under some threat, certainly if they were to lose this.

Girona have only taken 0.88 points per game on their travels this term, not great for a side that still contains a sprinkling of top flight quality following their relegation last year. They are up against an Elche side that has actually collected more points away from home this season, so in theory they are one team that may not suffer too much from the absence of fans with their large stadium a bit too big for their current needs.
