Girona to Win

At the moment, Malaga is the first team outside of the relegation zone. And while they are six points ahead of the first team in the zone, they are still in a dangerous position.

Meanwhile, Girona is fourth in the standings and they are fighting for a Top 2 finish and direct promotion to La Liga. At the very least, they should be able to hold on to a Top 6 finish and a spot in the playoffs. Taking all that into account, and the fact that Girona is hosting the game, our prediction is for Girona to win.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

The last five head-to-head duels between Girona and Malaga have all gone under 2.5 total goals and we expect the same thing to happen on Friday.

In addition to this, Malaga averaged 2.24 goals per game in Segunda this season, while Girona averaged 2.58 goals per game in the league until now.

Both Teams to Score – No

We did not see both teams score in any of the previous five h2h meetings between Malaga and Girona and we would be surprised if that happened now.

On top of that, both teams scored in just 42% of matches played by both Malaga in the league so far, although both teams scored in 61% of all Girona matches in La Liga 2 this season.

Girona vs Malaga preview: Can the guests pull off an upset?


With nine rounds left to be played in Spanish Segunda, Girona is on a good path to at least secure a spot in the playoffs. The team is currently fourth in the standings, seven points behind Almeria who is second, which secures direct promotion. Meanwhile, Girona is also seven points ahead of Real Oviedo, the first team outside of the playoff zone. More importantly, Girona is on a four-game winning streak right now, so they are clearly in great form at the moment.


Unlike their upcoming opponent who is in great form, Malaga has just one win in their last six games, along with two draws and three losses. Overall, the team has 37 points, which is only enough for the 18th spot in the standings, just one spot above the relegation zone. That being said, Malaga has six points more than the first team in the relegation zone, so they do have some buffer, but it’s still a dangerous position to be in.
