Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Girona did well to hold Almeria to a goalless draw with eight men on the field, with the team showing character in the Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos clash. The Catalans aim to return to winning ways in Segunda Division, but keep in mind that they head into the match with a severely-weakened squad. Uruguay international Stuani has been struggling with injury, and he is unlikely to recover in time to face Las Palmas.
Ibrahima Kebe has been tested positive for coronavirus, while Muric and Juanpe are likely to miss the game through injury as well. Los Amarillos, on the other hand, are not regarded as good travellers, but they should take advantage of the current situation in Girona’s dressing room. Taking everything into account, share of spoils is on the cards at Estadio de los Juegos Mediterraneos.
