In that game, Girona FC had 41% of the possession and made 5 attempts on goal, but none of them were successful. Barcelona made 18 efforts at scoring, three of which were successful.
Girona FC’s recent games have lacked defensive tenacity much too frequently. According to the data, Girona FC’s defense has been breached in 5 of their last 6 games, resulting in 9 goals being scored during that period.
While that would be interesting, we must now wait to see if this tendency will continue in this game. Elche CF will be looking to avenge their La Liga loss to Osasuna last time out by winning this match.
Elche CF had 38% of the possession in that game and 1 of their 7 shots on goal were on goal. Tete Morente scored for Elche CF in the 44th second. Six of the 22 shots that Osasuna took at goal were on target.
Osasuna scored goals through Abdessamad Ezzalzouli (71′, 84′). Elche CF has been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents scoring 12 goals overall. The numbers speak for themselves.
Elche CF can undoubtedly do much better at the back. Elche CF has not won on the road in the previous two league games going into this matchup.

Girona FC, on the other hand, made 21 attempts at goal, with only three of them succeeding. Valentn Castellanos (66′) and Iván Martn (39′) both scored. Referee Pablo González Fuertes oversaw the contest.
Looking at the roster, Girona FC manager Mchel Sánchez Muoz just has one fitness issue to deal with out of an otherwise full roster. Ibrahima Kébé (Knee Issues) is eliminated from consideration.
When starting Paulo Gazzaniga, Arnau Martnez, Santiago Bueno, David Lopez, Javi Hernández, Oriol Romeu, Viktor Tsygankov, I. Martn Nez, Borja Garcia, Toni Villa, and V. Castellanos, it appears that Blanquivermells will employ the 4-1-4-1 formation this time.
Sebastián Beccacece, the head coach of Elche CF, has no fitness worries going into this game because his team is totally healthy and prepared.
Our prediction is that Los Franjiverdes will use a 4-4-2 formation with Edgar Badia, Helibelton Palacios, John Donald Chetauya, Pedro Bigas, Carlos Clerc, Tete Morente, Omar Mascarell, Gerard Gumbau, Lex Collado, Lucas Boye, and Pere Milla as the starting eleven.
