Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Lugo, Girona will look to return to winning ways in Segunda Division when they take on Amorebieta at Lezama Facilities on Saturday afternoon. The Catalan outfit aim to stay in the playoffs berth, but beating the Basques on the road is easier said than done. Experienced attacker Cristian Stuani is a major doubt after he was tested positive for coronavirus, while all Baena, Aleix Garcia, and Terrats returned to contention at the weekend.
The hosts, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Sporting Gijon. Considering that Amorebieta have drawn each of their last three home fixtures, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw. January signings Sergio Moreno and Peru Nolaskoain are pushing for a start.
Highlighted Player (Adrian Ortola):
Adrian Ortola is a Spanish goalkeeper who plays for Segunda Division side Tenerife. Born in Xabia, Spain on August 20, 1993, Ortola spent his youth career at the likes of Javea and Alicante before moving to Villarreal in 2008.
The 185-cm tall shot-stopper did not see any game action with the senior team, but he has 43 appearances in total for Villarreal B and Villarreal C. In 2013 he moved to Barcelona, being assigned to the reserve team. He played for Alaves and Deportivo La Coruna on loan as well before signing a two-year deal with Tenerife in the summer of 2019.
Adrian Ortola made his Tenerife debut in a 2-0 loss to Zaragoza on August 17, 2019, and he kept his first clean sheet with los Insulares in a goalless draw with Las Palmas the following month. Speaking of his international career, the goalkeeper has four caps with Spain U20 team.
Highlighted Team (Girona):
After several unsuccessful attempts, finally secured promotion to Primera Division at the end of the 2016/2017 season. The Catalan outfit finished the campaign in second place in the standings, 14 points behind Levante and only two clear of third-placed Getafe. Girona play their home games at Montilivi and the capacity of the venue is 9.286.
Speaking of the club history, Girona were founded in the café Norat in La Rambla of Girona on July 23, 1930 and they played their first official game against Colonia Artigas. A number of Spanish coaches were in charge of the team in the past, but it has to be noted that Uruguayan tactician Dagoberto Moll (1965/1966) and Karoly Plattko (1948/1949) of Hungary were in charge of the club as well.
The Catalan team wear white shirts with red stripes when playing at home, while the colour of their shorts is blue. The team’s away kits are blue and black and Sporting Gijon are considered one of Girona’s fiercest rivals.
