There is just one match scheduled for the evening of Friday in the premier flight of Spain, but it is a crucial one for Girona, who leads the standings, as they get ready to welcome modest Celta Vigo to their Estadi Municipal de Montilivi. Girona is looking for their 3rd straight league victory, while Celta Vigo is hoping to move up out of the division’s bottom 3 with a victory.
In the current campaign, the hosts have emerged as the unexpected winner in the first league of Spain. Míchel’s team began the campaign with a tie against Real Sociedad, who finished 4th the previous year, but they went on to prevail in 6 straight games. They fell 3-0 against Los Blancos at home on Week 8, which was a significant blow, but they recovered with victories over Cadiz and Almeria. Girona are poised to make history during this campaign as they are just in their 4th season at this level of competition. Their highest finish to date has been 10th in both the 2017–18 and 2022–23 seasons. Girona’s performances and achievements so far have proven amazing, but it is going to be extremely challenging for them to keep up this level and genuinely contend for the top 4 spots.
Celta Vigo, however, have only carried over their dismal play from the previous season. When comparing the statistics from the previous campaign to this one, Rafael Benítez’s team finished with two victories in their last 12 matches. They have prevailed in only one, lost 6 and drawn 3 of their 10 matches thus far. Nevertheless, the fact that the visitors prevailed in their previous visit to Montilivi will give them confidence before Friday’s match. After giving up a penalty that resulted in a red card versus Atletico Madrid this past weekend, Ivan Villar has been suspended.
