Girona VS Las Palmas  Livescore | Match Preview | Match Statistics
-------------------------------------------
Girona: The Catalans want to put Las Palmas offside ( Recent Form: L W W L L )
With 23 points from eighteen rounds and a thirteenth place, Girona obviously still has a brilliant debut in La Liga, but we can not deny that the Catalans both closed badly in 2017 and started badly in 2018. After the painful 4-1 defeat against Eibar stayed the Catalans also last week visiting Valencia with empty hands behind: 2-1. Trainer Pedro Machin: 'I am proud of my team. We played well, although Valencia simply turned out to be a size too big. ' Girona had his own goal by Jonas Ramalho and a penalty kick against some bad luck in the Mestalla, but was hoping for a good result until the last moment. Zero points remain zero points and despite the large lead on the relegation zone, the Catalans are far from safe. The upcoming match against Las Palmas is therefore extremely important, as defender Juanpe also knows: 'We have to take the three points, to put Las Palmas further away.' The manner of fighting of the red-witted is now known. Machin tries to keep the defense closed with a five-man rearguard, while at the forefront of the creativity and scoring ability of Cristian Portu and Christian Stuani. The attack duo together account for no less than fifteen of the 22 league goals of the Catalans. In the last five rounds in the own Montilivi, at least one of the two attackers was always accurate.
 
Las Palmas: The defense is as leaky as a basket ( Recent Form: D L D L L )
Las Palmas is working on an absolute disaster season. Last year around this time, the island club was one of the tasters of La Liga, but this football year the yellow shirts do not yet dent in a packet of butter. The recently appointed trainer Paco Jemez has to lead Las Palmas out of the relegation zone, but he also seems to have turned to the huge mess in the Estadio de Gran Canaria. After the 1-2 home defeat of last weekend against Eibar, his team went into the Copa del Rey on Tuesday-evening and hard to beat Valencia 4-0. "If we keep giving away gifts in the back, we have nothing to look for in La Liga," the coach grumbled. Forty goals and a goal difference of -26 after barely eighteen rounds of games indeed says a lot. The situation therefore does not look rosy, but nothing has been lost for Las Palmas. The difference with the safe seventeenth place is only five points, so if Jemez finds a way to close the leak in his rearguard, nothing is lost. He would probably be wise to play with five defenders like Girona, although I do not see that happening soon. Jemez always tries to make his teams play offensively, a five-man rearguard does not really fit in his alley. On the other hand, of course, it is just how you fill it out - the backs in possession of the ball could cover the entire flanks. In any case, sealing the rearguard is the main priority of the yellow shirts.
 
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Girona is the rightful favorite, but I think the matchodds are somewhat on the low side. I prefer to go for a goal by Stuani. The Uruguayan was nine times accurate this season, including in the last five home games of Girona. On Saturday afternoon he is officially the worst rearguard of La Liga, so I expect that he will get some chances.

Handicap Pick: Girona -0.5
