With only two rounds remaining of the current La Liga campaign, a few things are about to fall into place, when Girona welcome Real Betis at Estadi Municipal de Montilivi.

Girona have their eyes set on a good performance and, more importantly, three points, when facing Real Betis. On home soil, the former should have the upper hand, as they aim to move inside the top six.

Girona scored an average of 1.6 goals in ten matches or a total of 16 while allowing ten goals against. This is an average of one goals against per match with three clean sheets along the way.

Real Betis travel to their next La Liga match, averaging a lowly 0.9 goals per game in their last ten matches. They scored a disappointing total of nine goals, while also conceding 13 goals. That amounts to an average of 1.3 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring three times.

Real Betis won 2-1 and 3-2 in the two most recent meetings with Girona, and go into their upcoming match with a psychological advantage.

Girona vs Real Betis Prediction

Girona Form

Girona are without a win from their previous three outings, as Real Sociedad managed a draw, before they lost 1-2 against Villarreal. Their latest match ended in a 1-1 draw with Celta Vigo. Girona won four of their past six matches on home soil in the La Liga, where they also lost twice but drew none. They scored 11 goals and conceded seven times.

Real Betis Form

Real Betis are difficult to read after taking four points in their last three matches, which kicked off with a 3-1 win against Rayo Vallecano. A 0-0 draw with Sevilla followed, before a 0-1 defeat against Getafe. Real Betis only have one paltry win to show from the last six away games in the La Liga. In these six matches they drew two and lost three as well as being outscored by nine goals to four.

Both Girona and visitors Real Betis seem to struggle just a wee bit much right now, with keeping a clean sheet. We go out on a limb here and suggest that, both teams will find the back of the net.

Girona have taken 19 points from their last 16 games against teams from the top half of the La Liga table. They won five of these matches with a scoreline of 23 goals to 24. Real Betis took 21 points from their last 17 games against teams from the top half of the La Liga table. They won five, scored 14 goals and conceded 17.
