Alcorcon vs Girona Preview
Girona are in Madrid on Friday night for a LaLiga SmartBank clash against struggling Alcorcon. The hosts have just picked up a couple of much needed wins though and they’ll be hoping they’ve turned a corner in their season as they look to climb clear of the relegation zone with a victory here.
Alcorcon have had a bizarre season in many respects. Having taken 4 points from their opening 2 games, they then proceeded to lose 9 in a row, almost unprecedented in a league where every team is supposedly on a similar kind of level. That demise predictably led to the sacking of summer appointment Mere but they have turned a corner under the guidance of new boss Juan Antonio Anquela.
The former Alcorcon player has taken 6 points from his 3 games at the helm. They’ve been much better defensively under him, conceding only once in those fixtures and back-to-back wins over Castellon and Lugo will have restored belief heading into this one.
Girona would be forgiven for thinking they’re unfortunate to be facing Alcorcon right now rather than a few weeks back when the South Madrid side looked like a hopeless cause. It has been a mixed few weeks for the Catalans with the highs of a shock derby win at Espanyol followed by the low of a home defeat to crisis club Malaga.
It feels a bit like a waiting game for Girona who are trying to stay in touch with the play-off places so they can mount a charge in the second half of the season when they should have a number of players back including talisman Cristhian Stuani. The Segunda Division’s deadliest marksman continues to train alone as he works his way back to fitness.
Head to Head
- Last 6 Competitive Meetings: 3 Alcorcon Wins, 1 Girona Win, 2 Draws.
- Alcorcon have won all of their last 3 home games against Girona.
- Girona have gone 3 games without scoring against this opposition including two games at Montilivi.
Alcorcon vs Girona Predictions
Score Prediction: Alcorcon 1-0 Girona
The Segunda Division is a funny league at the best of times but Alcorcon have proved just how strange it can be with their form so far this season. They have a real sense of belief again under new management and they look like they might be able to nullify Girona’s attacking threat and claim a third straight win here with the Catalans still missing some key men.
