Sevilla vs Girona Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
February 08, 2018
Sevilla bounced back from an embarrassing La Liga defeat last weekend by securing a spot in the Copa Del Rey with victory over sprightly Leganes, conquerors of Real Madrid. A 2-0 home win sealed a 3-1 aggregate victory for Vincenzo Montella’s team. Whether it will be enough to keep fans off his back remains to be seen. Sevilla have conceded five goals on two separate occasions in the short time that Montella has been in charge, most recently at Eibar.
Conceding in the opening minute, Sevilla weren’t given a moment’s respite thereafter from the rampant hosts with Fabian Orellana getting a brace in a 5-1 win. Montella will need his side to shape up with Manchester United among their upcoming opponents. The Red Devils visit Spain in less than two weeks with a ticket fiasco heating up the animosity between the two clubs.
For now, Sevilla must focus on the visit of Girona. Having earned promotion last season, they have been a terrific addition to La Liga. Victory over Sevilla will see them leapfrog their opponents and could see them rising as high as sixth place if other results go their way. They’re unbeaten in their last four games and recently got a point away to Atletico Madrid.
