Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Estadio Municipal de Montilivi will host Friday’s football game between Girona and Zaragoza, the two teams with completely different ambitions in the season finale. Girona are eyeing a place in the playoffs, while Zaragoza’s main goals is to secure the La Liga 2 survival. The Catalans aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Rayo Vallecano, and seeing that they are six points behind the playoffs berth, this has to go down as a must-win game for the hosts.
Los Blanquillos, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back wins over Fuenlabrada and Almeria. Zaragoza have been in a fine form of late, but given the importance of Friday’s match for the hosts, we predict that the visitors will return to Aragon empty-handed. Girona boss Francisco Rodriguez should stick to the 4-4-2 formation, with Sylla and Stuani up front.
