Alaves continue their winning ways and remain very strong at home encounters since changing coaches at the turn of the year.
As they welcome Girona late this week, expect Ruben Sobrino to remain a doubt due to his calf problem. Along with him, Carlos Vigaray is also unlikely to play to injury.
With these probable absentees, Herman Perez should be preferred to play on the right wing; while Burgui is expected to feature on the opposite flank.
Despite sitting in the 8th spot, Girona are losing momentum in the past few matches. They suffered back to back defeats at the hands of Real Sociedad and Real Betis.
As Girona hit the road to Alaves, the club is expected sideline few players. Alex Granell is suspended for the after getting too many yellow cards. So, Aleix Garcia should fill in for him in the centre of the park for manager Pablo Machin’s side. Also, Aday Benitez is expected to play at right wing-back in place of Pablo Maffeo.
The previous month up to this day has really been tough on the side of Girona. Their hopes of securing top 6 finish is slowly slipping through their hands. However, we can see the club rise up again as they travel to face off Alaves (Watch how this contest unfolds. Sign Up on 12BET to get the best match preview and 12BET Sportsbook betting odds).
