Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Las Palmas will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Fuenlabrada when they take on Girona in the opening match of day 30. Las Palmas are seven points behind the playoffs berth, meaning that Friday’s clash is of big importance for the home team. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Crespo Garcia, who scored a brace in the triumph over Fuenlabrada. La Union Deportiva are eyeing their ninth home win of the season.
The Catalans, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Lugo. Girona are eager to put an end to their three-game winless run, but beating Las Palmas on the road is easier said than done. Since La Union Deportiva are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Catalonia empty-handed. Monchu Ramon is banned for the visiting team.
