Barcelona vs Girona La Liga Odds & Preview

Catalonia Derby on Sunday

La Liga Match of the Week

Girona’s excellent run of form continued last weekend as they took down Valencia, 2-1. They’re four points ahead of Barcelona in the La Liga table, who they face off with on Sunday. Barcelona are also coming off a win, as Joao Felix scored the winning goal vs. his parent club Atletico Madrid. It’s quite rare that Barcelona have any worthy Catalan challengers but this season is a notable exception. In this Catalan derby, we’ll check out the Barcelona vs Girona La Liga odds

Head-to-Head

Both meetings of this fixture on the 2022-23 La Liga schedule were low-scoring. Pedri scored the winner in a 1-0 win at Girona last season and the reverse fixture finished scoreless. Girona are going for their first-ever La Liga win vs. Barcelona here, as they hold a 0-2-4 record. Girona have failed to score in each of their last three games vs. Barcelona.

Barcelona Grab Statement Win Over Atletico 

You couldn’t have written a better script for Barcelona’s match vs. Atletico Madrid last Sunday. It’s no secret that Barcelona winger Joao Felix, on loan from Atletico Madrid, and Atletico manager Diego Simeone have an icy relationship. Felix proved his worth by scoring the game’s only goal and helping Barcelona move up to third place. He’s been one of the most productive Barcelona players this season and it seems feasible that Barça will sign him on a permanent deal at the end of the season. 

Even though Barcelona are in the title race at the moment, they’ve struggled to score goals for quite some time. The last time they managed to put three on the board in any match was on September 23rd. Still, they’ve managed to qualify for the Champions League round of 16 for the first time in three seasons. Plus, they’re just four points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid. 

Here, the Barcelona vs Girona La Liga odds price the hosts as -205 favorites. Unfortunately, Barcelona keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen is out with a long term back problem. Iñaki Peña has been filling in and he made a superb save on a Memphis Depay free kick last weekend to preserve Barcelona’s clean sheet. Gavi, Marcos Alonso and Iñigo Martínez are also out for Barcelona. 

High Flying Girona Unbeaten in Nine

Girona are looking to extend their unbeaten run, in all competitions, to nine on Sunday. Midweek, the Catalan club defeated Orihuela 5-2 in the second round of the Copa del Rey. Cristhian Stuani scored two goals for a second straight match. Last weekend, Girona trailed Valencia deep into the second half but Stuani’s brace handed the hosts a 2-1 victory. 

With the win, Girona remained in second place in the La Liga table. They’re level on points with leaders Real Madrid but have a worse goal difference. Girona have never finished above 10th in the top flight but the La Liga odds price the City Group-owned side as -200 favorites to finish in the top four and make the UEFA Champions League for the first time. 

In limited minutes, 37-year old Stuani has been superb. He’s scored five La Liga goals this season, while Ukrainian forward Artem Dovbyk has scored seven. This Girona side plays a free flowing style and they are certainly greater than the sum of their parts. Bettors should note that key midfielder Yangel Herrera will miss out here. 

Match Analysis & Odds

This is the must-see match in La Liga this weekend. In this local derby, expect fearless Girona to play their game vs. Barcelona. Even though Girona will try to take the game to Barcelona, that doesn’t mean the oddsmakers think it’ll end in three points for the visitors. 

Currently, Barcelona vs Girona La Liga odds price the hosts as one-goal favorites. Girona may feel disrespected by these odds, as they’ve only lost one match all season and are ahead of Barcelona in the La Liga table. Plus, Barcelona haven’t won a match in La Liga by a multi-goal margin for nearly three months. Still, Barcelona -1 comes in at -125 odds. 

Barcelona are -205 moneyline favorites, while Girona sit at +470 odds to pull off their first-ever La Liga win vs. Barça. Girona +1 is also priced at +105 odds, while punters can take a draw at +375. Even if Girona lost this match, they’ll still finish the weekend ahead of Barcelona in the table. Both teams have scored in each of Girona’s last four La Liga matches but under 3, 3.5 goals are priced at -120 odds.
