Eusebio’s team has pleasantly surprised in the last round when has managed to take points from Barcelona (2:2) on her field. Christian Stuani who was the author of a double with five goals heads the table of team’s goal-scorers.
In the previous games the rivals were not very comfortable, but only to Real the Catalans have lost (1:4). But the team has managed to win away match over Villarreal (1:0) and home match over Celta (3:2). Girona has scored seven goals in frames of the championship though its xG makes only 5.23. Now it is clear, how much in the attack of team of Eusebio depends on the Uruguayan forward and his skills.
Only Celts have felt how it is to get balls from their own gates at Montivilli stadium. At in two previous house meetings, including with modest Valladolid (0:0), Girona has scored only once.
If the future rival of the club from Seville has nothing special to be proud of (except the forward who in general will hardly show good result at a distance), then Verdi Blancos enter the trio of the best teams of the Spanish championship by the accuracy of assists (88%). The team of Enrique Setién has given the way to Barcelona and Real.
Having lost in the first round to Levante (0:3), further the club from Seville didn’t lose any match. But, to tell the truth there are a lot of draws. Three draws with participation of Betis have happened only in the Primera, one more in frames of the Europa League where Olympiacos was the rival (0:0).
The positive moment is that Setién ‘s team surpasses the actual level of the scored goals (3) very significantly, xG=6.54.
In five of six last matches from which 66% have taken place in frames of Segunda Sevilla was stronger. He has won away match over Girona last season (1:0) while the home match has ended in a draw (2:2).
