Espanyol hosts Girona in round 13 of Spanish LaLiga 2. The match will be played on Friday, November 20th at RCDE Stadium (Barcelona).
Budgerigars could not withstand the load of last season. Then the team took part in the Europa League, where it started from qualifiers and finished in the playoffs. The Catalan club eventually found itself in Segunda. However, Budgerigars have managed to show good statistics so far. They suffered only one defeat from Rayo Vallecano (back on October 18) and gained eight victories in 12 rounds. True, Espanyol lost points last Saturday, having conceded from Fuenlabrada in the 87th minute (1-1). Still, the representative of Catalonia single-handedly leads the Segunda standings with 27 points scored.
In 2017-2019, Girona performed in Primera. It didn’t manage to return there right off the reel - only 5th place and defeat in the playoffs. Having received a new coach Francisco (previously worked with Huesca), the team lost in both starting rounds. After that, it managed to win four out of five next games, but this rise was not enough for a long time. An ambitious team cannot win in November. At first, there were three draws in a row (with Almeria, Zaragoza, and Las Palmas). But last Saturday, Girona lost to Mallorca at home. Sevilla scored a goal already in the fifth minute, and all Girona managed to do in return was to get two red cards at the end (Ramalho and Mamadou Silla). One can also note the injury of the main striker, Christian Stuani, who has not appeared on the field since October 24 and has not scored a single goal this season. In the last championship, the veteran scored 31 goals in 40 matches for the team. So far, the coach has not managed to replace him - everyone is waiting for the Uruguayan to return to the field.
The clubs show different football this fall. Given that the leader will host the opponent at its native stadium, it seems that there should be no problems with a positive result. We will bet on the victory of Espanyol.
