Barcelona will look to extend their lead at the top of the La Liga table when they make the trip to the Estadi Municipal de Montilivi to take on Girona on Sunday afternoon. Girona have suffered a 3-2 away loss at Betis last weekend, although they had a one-goal lead following strikes from Aleix Garcia and Seydou Doumbia. On the contrary, Barcelona won 3-1 at home thanks to goals from Ousmane Dembele, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Girona are winless in eight competitive outings at the moment, but five of these have ended in draws. However, on home soil, Girona are unbeaten in seven home games across all competitions, registering five draws and two wins in the process. This leaves Girona 12th in the league table with 24 points to their name after 20 rounds, just four points clear of the bottom three.
Meanwhile, Barcelona are unbeaten in eight La Liga games at the moment, winning seven in the process. Sandwiched in-between these results, Barca have suffered two defeats in Copa del Rey. They were beaten by Levante in the first leg, but bounced back with a 3-0 win the second game to qualify for the quarter-finals. However, the Blaugrana have lost once again in the first leg, but this time against Sevilla last night.
Barcelona should be able to grab all three points here, but we can’t see a big-margin victory. Our betting tips and predictions expect Barcelona to win and Under 3.5 goals at odds 2.40.
