Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
After playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Mirandes on Matchday 26, Girona will be looking to return to winning ways in Segunda Division when they host Castellon at their Estadio Municipal de Montilivi. The Catalan outfit aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Sunday’s football game. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be experienced Uruguay attacker Stuani, who scored a brace in the draw with los Rojillos.
Castellon, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table, with the team losing each of their previous three league fixtures. Since Girona are eager to move closer to the playoffs berth, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Keep in mind that Girona are eyeing their sixth consecutive win over Castellon.
