Girona vs Celta Vigo Preview

Girona vs Celta Vigo

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Municipal Montilivi

Date: 17th September 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Girona host Celta Vigo in what should be an interesting game as both teams won their respective games before the international break.

Girona were lucky to have won their last game as a Christian Stuani strike was enough to get them all 3 points against Villarreal.

In truth, that wasn’t the best of games for them, and their home form which has seen them collect just 1 point from two games is not the most impressive.

Just like their host, Celta Vigo changed their manager this summer, and Antonio Mohamed has made a flying start to his time at the helm.

They have collected 7 points from their opening 3 games, and last time out they stunned Atletico Madrid with a 2-0 win which could have been 3-0 if there was no VAR.

The ability to break down a defence that is as strong as Atleti’s makes them a team to watch out for and they will be looking to prove they are the real deal in this game as well.

Pione Sisto, Iago Aspas and Maxi Gomez are their main driving force and the trio is arguably the best attacking combination outside the top three at the moment.

Girona are moving from the system that brought them success last season, and that could affect them this season and perhaps cost them points in this game as well.

Bookmakers tentatively make Girona slight favourites to come out on top at home however the odds are extremely close and Celta will surely have followers after last weeks result.

Goal markets suggest an open game so expect goals on a dreary Monday evening.
