Real Betis are hoping to secure their Europa League spot when they visit Girona this weekend. However, the visitors could still claim a European spot themselves as they are just a point behind Athletic Bilbao in the race for a Europa Conference League spot.
La Liga preview
It promises to be an exciting final seven days in the La Liga race for European qualifiers. Real Betis have all the cards in their hands in the battle for last place in the Europa League as they sit six clear of Bilbao with two rounds to go. However, the fact that Bilbao still have the advantage on goal difference could make for a convincing final day if both teams claim victory this weekend.
Betis will look to get back on track on Sunday as results have been both deceptive and flattering in recent weeks. They go into this game having failed to win twice and the last time they suffered their first defeat in four league games. That defeat came at home to relegated Getafe, with the visitors clinching maximum points from their winner with 20 minutes to go.
Girona are still battling for vital points themselves this season as they continue to vie for a place in the Europa Conference League. They go into this game just a point behind Bilbao but could overtake their rivals this weekend. To achieve that, however, they need to get back on track after three league games without a win.
Girona were held to a draw in three games in their last game as they managed to score a second goal in the closing stages against Celta Viga. Half an hour before the end of the game, Cristhian Stuani scored the equalizer from the penalty spot.
Girona vs Real Betis head to head
Betis have an excellent record in this game as they have four straight league wins against Girona. The last of these was a 2-1 win in September. Girona’s last win against Betis came in March 2010 in the second division.
Girona vs Real Betis Prediction
This is a test game this weekend as both sides go into the game in stuttering form. However, Betis will seize the chance to act on the midweek disappointment and secure a Europa League spot.
