Our football match prediction:
Girona chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window and it is no surprise the newcomers impressed in the opening match of the season against Atletico Madrid. The Catalans were on the verge of beating the star-studded capital club in front of home fans, but los Rojiblancos eventually came from two goals behind to share the spoils with the newly-promoted side. Anyhow, Girona fans have a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Malaga and we predict that Pablo Machin’s men are going to record their first win of the season this weekend. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced attacker Cristhian Stuani, who scored a brace against Atletico Madrid. Malaga are not considered good travelers and they are unlikely to grab something from Sunday’s football match. You should bear in mind that the two teams meet for the first time ever in La Liga.
