GIRONA – BETIS SOCCER PREDICITON
For Betis it was an excellent championship round, the one that ended last Monday with the surprising internal defeat of Villarreal. They also lost Sevilla and Girona, and this allowed Betis to gain some points on all his direct opponents. The team of Quique Setién had already beaten 2-0 at home Eibar, in a Benito Villamarin full of spectators. The Betis is now only in fifth position with two points ahead of Villarreal and three over Sevilla.
Five points ahead of Betis also has them on the Girona, his next opponent. Not only for reasons of classification but also for the quality of the game and tactical organization is almost unanimously considered, the Girona, the best teams in the first division this year. But comes from the heaviest external defeat suffered in this league (along with 6-1 against Barcelona): he lost 5-0 to Anoeta against Real Sociedad. He has never been in the game, and both the central and the goalkeeper Yassine Bounou have shown excessive distraction and superficiality.
At the Montilivi stadium the Girona is generally transformed: in this 2018 it has so far won them all except that one 1-1 draw against the Levante. They lost teams like Celta Vigo and Athletic Bilbao, and even before Real Madrid at the end of October. The Betis will play with it without the central holder Jordi Amat, disqualified. Francis Guerrero is still absent for a muscular injury, and the physical conditions of Andres Guardado and Javi Garcia are not very clear. However, Antonio Sanabria was called again, after an absence due to an injury as long as a group: he was missing from the first leg against Girona.
