Girona vs Cadiz Preview
With the visitors having confirmed their La Liga promotion last week, it will be interesting to see how they come out against a side in Girona who are fighting for the second automatic promotion place.
Sitting just four points off Huesca, the Catalans find themselves involved in a four team battle for second place which includes Almeria, Zaragoza and the aforementioned Huesca. However they are outsiders in the battle, and also still have work to do just to secure a play-off place.
Since the return of LaLiga SmartBank, Girona have been in relatively good shape, suffering just two defeats in their last eight games which came against Elche and Malaga. A 2-2 draw with relegation battlers Lugo did set Francisco’s side back a little last week but they will relish the chance to take on potential champions Cadiz.
The visitors arrive fresh on the back of a rare defeat, coming against Fuenlabrada and that could give the home side the edge. Cadiz secured promotion following that game against Fuenlabrada, as a direct result of Zaragoza’s surprise 4-2 home defeat against Real Oviedo.
Whilst Francisco is expected to select his strongest eleven, the visitors could opt to rotate after what has been a hard but successful season. The likes of striker Antony Lozano, Salvi, Alfonso Epsina, Isaac Carcelen and 41-year-old ‘keeper Alberto Cifuentes, who have all played over 30 games, could potentially be handed a rest.
Whilst the league leaders can still be caught by second placed Huesca, a point would be enough to see them be handed the tag of champions and they may not even need that.
Girona vs Cadiz Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-0 Girona
Cadiz are promoted and they are most likely going to be champions, meaning they now have little to play for as preparations begin ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, thus handing Girona every hope they can pick up three vital points. A turnaround in results at the top of the table could see the former LaLiga side push themselves closer to second place and with the division’s 2nd best home record, they look capable of winning this.
