Villarreal vs Girona Preview

Villarreal vs Girona

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Estadio de la Cerámica

Date: 31st August 2018

Kick-off time – 21:00 GMT

These two sides have failed to record a win in La Liga this season and they both head into this game looking for the three points that would kick start their campaign.

Villarreal fans will be hoping that home advantage helps them get the better of their visitors here.

They are one of the smallest clubs in Spain, but they have been extremely impressive in the last decade that finishing outside the top six is now being viewed genuinely as a failure.

In their first game of the season against Real Sociedad, there were signs that the incomings and outgoings over the summer has affected their rhythm however they should do better collectively as a team in this game.

Girona come into this game off the back of a 4-1 loss to Real Madrid so they will be eager to get a result from this match.

They started the game against Los Blancos very brightly and even took the lead, however, the European champions eventually got the better of them.

One thing that was obvious from their play last week was that they have changed their approach to the game which brought success last season.

They actually beat Villarreal in this fixture last season however on current form a repeat of that looks unlikely.

Bookmakers make Villarreal strong odds-on favourites to get the job done at the Estadio de la Cerámica.
