Girona FC vs Valencia Odds & Preview

Girona Level on Points With Real Madrid

Girona Winning Streak Ends

Before La Liga Matchday 14, Girona were on top of the table ahead of giants Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. A draw vs. Athletic Club on Monday ended Girona’s five-game winning streak and stint on top of the table. Still, they are level on points with leaders Real Madrid. Girona will look to overtake Real on Saturday when they host Valencia in a La Liga clash. We’ll preview the Girona FC vs Valencia odds in a match between two top half La Liga teams.

Girona vs Valencia

Date, time:
Location: Estadi Montilivi, Girona, Spain

Head-to-Head

Last season’s La Liga scores in this fixture were both 1-0 in favor of the home team. In fact, four of the last five Girona vs. Valencia meetings have finished with just one goal. Before completing a transfer to PSG before deadline day in 2022, Carlos Soler scored the game’s only goal as ten-man Valencia defeated Girona. In the reverse fixture, Girona were the better side and Borja Garcia scored to give the hosts a victory. Valencia are 4-2 in six previous La Liga matches vs. the Catalan club.

Dovbyk Out for Girona

Girona’s leading scorer Artem Dovbyk missed out on their match vs. Athletic Club on Monday evening. Dovbyk, who scored the equalizer in the 2-1 win over Rayo Vallecano a few weekends ago, is dealing with calf problems and could be out until mid December. Without the Ukraine international, Girona managed to grab a 1-1 draw vs. Athletic Bilbao.

Another Ukraine international, Viktor Tsygankov, scored the opening goal in the match. Iñaki Williams later equalized as Girona drew for just the second time this season. Girona, the surprises of the season in La Liga, are 11-2-1 heading into Matchday 15. They’ve been playing an attractive, attacking style of football that has done wonders so far.

Michel’s Girona lead La Liga in scoring, with 32 goals in 14 matches. Even though Dovbyk will miss this match, six other Girona players have scored at least three goals this season. With four goals and four assists, 19-year old forward Savio has been another standout. As the hosts try to stay in the title race, the Girona FC vs Valencia odds price Girona as -140 favorites.

Valencia Showing Signs of Improvement

Following a 5-1 loss to Real Madrid, Valencia played to a scoreless draw vs. Celta Vigo on Saturday. Despite having the better spells of possession, Los Murcielagos failed to put a single shot on target. Although they’ve scored just two goals in their last three matches, Valencia have lost just one of their last six matches. After a highly disappointing 16th place finish in 2022-23, Valencia have shown signs of improvement.

They hold a 5-4-5 record in La Liga, which has been good enough for 10th place. While they finished just two points outside of the relegation zone last season, Valencia are currently 11 points ahead of 18th place. Still, their 1-3-3 road record leaves a lot to be desired.

Hugo Duro has already scored six goals this season and three of those have come in Valencia’s last five games. Fullbacks Jose Gaya and Thierry Correia have also been standouts, as they’re both top ten in La Liga in tackles. Jose Luis Garcia has also been a mainstay in midfield. Just Andre Almeida is on Valencia’s injury list heading into this match.

Match Analysis & Odds

Here, the La Liga betting odds price hosts Girona as -140 favorites. The oddsmakers have certainly started to respect Girona’s progress and their odds correspond to a 58.3 percent chance of victory. Bettors can also take Girona -0.5, -1 at -110 as they go for their 12th La Liga win this season. Despite Dovbyk’s absence, Girona still have a number of attacking threats.

Valencia, who will have to absorb Girona’s pressure in this match, are +360 underdogs. Valencia +0.5, +1 also sits at -110 odds for this one and just two of Valencia’s five losses have come by a multi-goal margin. The Girona FC vs Valencia odds also list a draw at +310 but this fixture has never ended all square.

Girona have had a number of scoring outbursts this season but they’ve scored more than one goal in just one of their last four home matches. Here, under 2.5, 3 goals are priced at -120 odds.
