In their previous match, Girona met Rayo Vallecano on Thursday and it finished in an entertaining 2:2 draw on home ground. The club is going through an unfortunate streak of three games, without a single victory, registering 1 defeat and 2 draws. Being the host turned out very beneficial in Girona’s recent ten encounters, as the sides performing on home ground triumphed in four and lost only one. Given the outcome in five of the previous ten clashes of the squad was a draw, it makes sense this has been the most common result. All except one of Girona’s five previous meetings finished with more than 2.5 goals and each saw both sides finding the net. The players of Girona left everything on the field but still did not manage to prevent their opponents from scoring and the team found the net at least once in each of those. The total of netted goals by the teams involved across their last five outings amount to 15.
