This duel may be called a fight for placement in Europa League, though Betis has five points more and they are in great fifth place, which is because of the quality of the teams that are above the table, really the most they can achieve. Girona can also be overwhelmed when it is known that this is their premier season in the elite rank and therefore, they are not under the imperative of placement in Europa League. They fell slightly in form, so they are three rounds without a win, while Betis on the other hand made four triumphs. In the first part of the season these rivals played a draw, 2-2.
Girona has achieved their first goal for this season, because they are safe and will not certainly be eliminated from the elite rank. In addition, they have the opportunity to fight for placement in Europa League, which would really be a great success for this team, although there is no pressure and if they fail, no one will be able to blame them.
They fell slightly in the form in the previous period, after having had a series of three wins without any goals received. Before that, they were mastered with 6-1 at Nou Camp and after three wins they lost with 6-3 at Santiago Bernabeu. They only played 1-1 against Levante on their field, and then lost to Real Sociedad in the last round with 5-0. In that duel, Mojica has replaced Adayo and it was the only change, while there might not be any this time.
Betis is in great rush and as a fruit of their good games in the previous period, they have come to the placement on the fifth position and that is what they hoped for. They were not so good in the first part and it seemed they will not catch the European positions, but now the placement in Europa League looks quite realistic. They cannot do more than that that because the fourth position is big 15 points away, so they are left to defend the fifth place and have a fairly good schedule till the end of the championship.
They made four wins and received only one goal. They defeated the teams from the middle of the table and they were the most convincing against Espanyol with 3-0, while they mastered Eibar in the last round with 2-0. Two rounds ago they celebrated against Getafe after a goal in the finish, while their host before that missed the opportunity to score from the penalty. After that match J.Garcia and Moron ended up on the bench, while Tello and S.Leon played, and goalkeeper Adan is out of action due to injury. Now J.Amat cannot play because of the suspension.
Girona has been in bad shape lately, but this team has not lost for a very long time on their field and they can oppose Betis which is great mood. We expect an equal match that can easily end with a draw, and certainly with a small number of goals.
