This is a fascinating clash from the second tier in Spain on Monday night as promotion play off hopes are on the line.

Gijon and Girona are two of three teams locked on 61 points inside the top seven. So this is a hugely important game to try and grab one of the two remaining open playoff spots.

So it should be a tight, tense battle, but it is the home side Girona who are the ones carrying all of the current form.

Girona Preview – Can Girona extend their positive form?

Girona have put together a four-match winning streak in the league. They are the form team of the division.

This burst of form has seen them climb their way up the table and has put them in with a chance of the play offs.

They are behind Gijon and Rayo Vallecano on goal difference only in the race for a top-six finish.

So they really need to get the three points as a draw keeps them behind at least Gijon.

Girona are the 31/20 favourites on home soil to come up with the victory on Monday* (odds recorded 2000 GMT 16th May).

As mentioned, they have the form.

It has been an overall W10 D4 L5 record from them on home soil in this campaign.

Girons are on a four-match winning streak at home in the league, scoring at least two goals in three of those four wins.

It is an unbeaten run of five that they are on at home currently.

Home and away combined Girona have suffered one loss in their last ten, so are shaping up very well.

Our betting prediction:
Girona 1-0 correct score
11/2

(odds recorded 2000 GMT 16th May)

 

Girona have banked a clean sheet in 41% of home fixtures this season and that could be good enough to see them win this huge challenge on Monday.

It has been an average of just 0.6 goals per home game that they have conceded.

In their last four league outings, Girona have banked three clean sheets.

Girona to win to nil is a quote of 13/5 for football betting* (odds recorded 2000 GMT 16th May).

They have also scored in each of their last ten league fixtures and five in a row at home.

With home soil advantage, Girona have a huge chance to take a step towards locking down a playoff spot.

 

Gijon Preview – Can Gijon give themselves a lift?

There hasn’t been a great deal of positive form produced by Sporting Gijon recently.

It has been a bad time for them to lose their way.

They collected a 1-0 home win over relegation-threatened Lugo in their last league game.

That snapped a run of five league fixtures without success (D2 L3).

The big concern for Gijon in this current run of form is that the goals have badly dried up for them.

They have scored only one goal in total in their last five league games. It’s been three in their last eight only.

Given what is at stake in this one under 1.5 goals maybe a football betting option to consider at 11/8* (odds recorded 2000 GMT 16th May).

The away form of Gijon this season is W6 D6 L7.

They have taken two points from their last three on the road, not having hit the back of the net in any of those.

So this slump of form has put them in big danger of falling out of the play off spots.

If they come up with a draw on the night, they stay in fifth place. A win keeps them there as well.

But defeat would leave them struggling badly.

Key Facts – Girona vs Gijon Betting Tip

  • Girona have won their last four league games
  • Girona are the form team of the division, claiming 19 points in their last 8 fixtures
