Girona vs Athletic Bilbao Match Preview
Girona host Athletic Bilbao for their Matchday 29 clash hoping to finish March strongly after bagging three wins in four outings and only suffering a thriller 2-3 loss to Valencia along the way. They sit six points behind La Liga’s top 6 and will now want to keep but rediscovering consistency at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi will be crucial.
Gironistes have indeed struggled to turn clashes their way here and the loss to Valencia as the fourth in five outings here, despite confidence boosters earned on the road. They’ve last bagged a win here in early December and this will be even more worrying for Eusebio Sacristan with obvious woes at the back.
Athletic Bilbao have been far from consistent but still sit three points clear of the rivals ahead of their trip to Girona, as they held off Espanyol (1-1), Eibar (3-3), and beat Atletico Madrid (2-0) in their last three outings all in front of the home fans.
Los Leones have been scoring goals on the road but still struggled for consistency as they earned just one win in last four trips. Gaizka Garitano will now want more as his men look to capitalize on the rivals’ woes at the back and make the goals count, which we do see them doing on the day.
We will thus stick our necks out for the visitors to snatch all three points at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi, going for an Away win at 19/10 with bet365 – which feels like great value despite their struggles for consistency.
Indeed, Girona have struggled in front of the home fans lately and we feel this will show on the day. However, we do feel they’ll do their bit as they make this into an exciting contest with goals and we go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 11/10 with Paddy Power.
