Match Preview

Currently sitting pretty in second place, Sevilla face Girona on the back of a nine-game winning run at home in all competitions.
In La Liga (LL) matches alone, the hosts are on an impressive run of just one defeat in ten home games (W8, D1, L1). Even though their last four home LL wins have come by one-goal margins, their consistency is what truly matters.
In that regard, Sevilla can attribute much of their success to the fact that they have failed to score in only one of their last 11 LL matches at all venues.
However, they may be forced to wait for their winning goal (if any), as Girona have not conceded a single first-half goal in their last seven LL matches, scoring five times before the break in those games.
Girona also bring an overall first-half goal difference (GD) of +7 to the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium – the best in the league.
On top of this, Girona have never once trailed at half-time in any LL fixture this season. By contrast though, their overall second-half goal difference (GD) of -7 is the fourth-worst in the league.
Relevantly perhaps, the only top-flight H2H meetings have both ended in 1-0 wins to Sevilla after a goalless first half.
Players to watchWissam Ben Yedder (Sevilla) has registered three goals and three assists in his last seven league starts, while Christhian Stuani (Girona) continues an amazing LL run with 11 goals in his last 11 appearances.
Stat attack: Both teams have scored in seven of Sevilla’s last nine LL matches.
Sevilla have been leading at half-time in just one of their last seven league games.
Girona have conceded just one goal in the first 60 minutes of an away LL match this season.
Still though, they are without a clean sheet in four matches across all competitions (W2, D1, L1).
