Girona vs Real Betis Preview

Girona vs Real Betis

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Municipal Montilivi

Date: 27th September 2018

Kick-off time – 21:00 GMT

This game could end up being a classic encounter between two of the La Liga’s mid-table teams to watch.

Girona come into this game off the back of almost earning a famous win in the Camp Nou the last time they played a league fixture, while Betis will be looking to continue their recent impressive run of results against the hosts.

Girona should be a much tougher side for Betis in this game and they showed that in their game against Barcelona.

They were 2-1 up after coming from a goal down to take the lead before a late equalizer from Pique that helped Barcelona claim a point.

Girona should be happy with that result, and their 8 points from their first five league games is not so bad when you consider that they have already played Real Madrid as well as visited Villarreal.

Real Betis, on the other hand, have collected six points from their opening 5 league games.

Betis started the season badly when they lost their opening fixture 3-0 at home to Levante, however, they have managed to stay unbeaten since that time.

Last weekend, they came from 2 goals down to draw 2-2 against Athletic Bilbao and their fans will hope that they have been able to take confidence from that fight back and take the initiative in this game.

Betis had the 5th best goal scoring record in the entire division last season with 1.58 goals scored per game, but they have found goals hard to come by this season.

Real Betis have won 5 of their last 6 meetings with Girona including a 1-0 win when they visited last season.

Bookmakers tentatively make Girona favourites to come out on top at home however odds are extremely close and  Betis are in with a real shout.

Goal markets suggest there could be goals so expect a lively game.
