Our prediction for this Segunda Division match:
Girona and Espanyol face each other at Estadio Municipal de Montilivi in the Catalan derby. Girona impressed in the Copa del Rey win over Cadiz at the weekend, and they are now on a quest to return to winning ways in La Liga 2. Fit-again Uruguay international Stuani is widely expected to return to the starting XI. Los Periquitos, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to Osasuna in the Spanish Cup, meaning that they will be fully focused on Segunda Division in the remainder of the season.
Espanyol are eager to get their revenge on Girona for the shocking loss at RCDE Stadium, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the league leaders. Espanyol boss Vicente Moreno rested several first-team regulars in the defeat to Osasuna, but he is going to field the best possible side in the Catalan derby. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
