In this article, we will give you the best fantasy combinations, probable lineups, team news, key stats and grand league tips for the La Liga match between Barcelona v Girona.
Barcelona v Girona
Spotify Camp Nou, Barcelona
11th April, 12.30am
Having suffered a thumping 4-0 loss at the hands of their bitter rivals Real Madrid in the COPA Del Rey, Barcelona will be hoping to get back to winning ways as they welcome Girona at the Spotify Camp Nou stadium on Monday night.
Barcelona are currently 11 points clear of Real Madrid at the top of the table, as they continue their pursuit for yet another Liga trophy. With Los Blancos suffering a bizarre defeat to the Yellow Submarines on Saturday, Xavi’s men will be motivated ahead of this fixture. They also have the best record at home this season in the Liga, with 35 points from 13 games – scoring 27 in the process and conceding just twice. Having been knocked out of the Champions League, European League and other cup competitions, the LaLiga trophy would be a must for Barcelona to deem this season as a successful one.
Any finish above the relegation zone would be a successful one for Girona – however, the white and the reds are currently sitting comfortably on 11th, seven points clear of the relegation zone. They enter this fixture on the back of a 2-1 victory over Espanyol. However, Girona haven’t been the best of travellers, having won just twice on their travels over the season. Having lost the reverse fixture 1-0, Girona will be hoping to turn the table this time around against Barcelona, as they pursuit for a top half finish in what seems to be an extremely difficult test for Michel’s men.
