Girona vs Barcelona

, KO: 15:15 May 4, 2024, Estadi Municipal de Montilivi

Girona will be looking to end Barcelona’s slim title hopes as both teams square off in a La Liga fixture at the Estadi Municipal de Montilivi. Goals have flowed for both sides in recent weeks and with neither defence looking particularly solid, a thrilling encounter could be on the cards.

A 2-0 at Las Palmas last time out was Girona’s third win in the last four matches. The Estadi Municipal de Montilivi has been a fortress for Michel’s men, who were beaten at home the likes of Atletico Madrid and Real Betis have failed at home.

Barcelona have two tasks ahead of Saturday’s clash as they look to hold on to second place while also delaying Real Madrid’s title celebrations for at least another week. They have been in good form since manager Xavi announced a contract extension, winning five of their last six La Liga matches.

The reigning champions head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 4-2 victory over Valencia last time out in La Liga. Fermin Lopez opened the scoring early in the contest while Robert Lewandowski grabbed a second half hat-trick.
