Girona positive of their European hopes

Girona eyes a win over Celta Vigo, as they resume to battle for their spot in the European stage next season. While Girona is still aiming for their spot in the European stage, Celta is still looking to fight for survival. In the league table, Girona is at the eighth with 48 points across their names. With 48 points, Girona just needs an additional three points to climb at the seventh in the league table. As for Celta, they are in dire need for points, as they are just three points above the drop zone. They are at the 15th of the league table with 39 points, having a four-point lead with the team at the 18th. With that, they are looking to add more points to avoid the possibility of relegation. Celta will host this match on May 24, 2023, at 1:30 AM (GMT+8).

From the last 14 matches that these two teams played, it is surprising that it was the hosts who holds an advantage. They have won seven of those matches, while the visitors have four wins, which is surprising, considering their place in the league table. However, when it comes to their last matches, the hosts are not doing well, losing their last four matches in the contest. They last tasted victory last month against Elche, in a 1-0 win. The visitors on the other hand are no better as they are not doing well on the road against the hosts. In fact, they last won on the road against the hosts nearly 12 years ago, a run they badly want to end here.

Girona currently sits at the eight of the league table, and are now chasing the seventh spot for a qualification in the European stage. They are currently with 48 points, and are two points away form stealing the seventh spot. Girona have been fairly impressive this season, a momentum they badly need for this game. It is just unfortunate that they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Villareal on their last match, as it is not the momentum they need. Nonetheless, they are coming into this match with aims of bouncing back, as they can no longer afford to suffer defeat. They can gain confidence from the fact that they have been consistent to go beyond expectations. Additionally, they also have a very talented squad that could lead them to victory.

Girona are fortunate that Oriol Romeu is returning for their squad after a suspension he served. However, Aleix Garcia, Borja Garcia, Toni Villa, and Ibrahima Kebe, all remain on the sidelines due to injuries.

Celta on the other hand is a team who are still fighting for their survival this season, because of their place in the league table. Although they are three places above the relegation zone, but they only have a few point lead. A win in this match could bring them at the 13th of the league table with 42 points across their names. This is no longer surprising though, as they failed to be at their best this season, thus their slump in the league table. Just like their opponents, they are also from a 2-1 loss against Athletic Bilbao, and are looking to bounce back in this important match. It is what they need to do though, as they are in need of resurgence to halt their slump this season.

Iago Aspas, and Agustin Marchesin are both unavailable for Celta due to their injuries, but fortunately, Renato Tapia is expected to return after his suspension. Haris Seferovic on the other hand is a doubt in this match due to an injury as well.
