Home » 18/12 Football Predictions: Leaders Girona hosts Alaves in Laliga Plus Other Odds

Football Prediction 

Girona will be hosting Alaves in the Laliga on Monday night as they aim to record their 14th victory of the campaign.

The home side are currently top of the table, boasting 41 points from their opening 16 matches of the season. They come into the tie on the back of a statement victory over Barcelona last weekend and they’ll be looking to continue with the same streak as Real Madrid might be top by the time they play as the Ancelotti men have an earlier duel on the day.

Alaves actually recorded a 2-1 victory in the last La Liga meeting between the two sides, which took place in May 2019, but they will be the huge underdogs in this match. El Glorioso secured a return to this level through last season’s Segunda Division playoffs, with the team managing to bounce straight back to La Liga following their relegation in 2021-22.

H2H / Stats 

Both teams have met 15 times with each winning five games; the clash has witnessed five draws too.

Team News 

Girona will be without the services of Yangel Herrera, Borja Garcia, Joel Roca, Ricard Artero and Toni Villa on Monday evening due to fitness problems. Cristhian Stuani is suspended due to the milestone yellow card that he picked up in the away success over Barcelona last time out.

As for Alaves, Aleksandar Sedlar and Giuliano Simeone will miss the contest due to injuries, while Abdel Abqar is suspended following his yellow card against Las Palmas.

Probable Line-Up

Girona XI: Gazzaniga (GK), E Garcia, D Lopez, Blind; Couto, Martin, A Garcia, Gutierrez; Tsygankov, Dovbyk, Savio

Alaves XI: Sivera (GK), Gorosabel, Tenaglia, Marin, Lopez; Rioja, Blanco, Guridi, Rebbach; Hagi; Omorodion

Verdict 

Alaves are capable of making this an uncomfortable match for Girona, but the league leaders are in such excellent form.
