Reasons For Barcelona vs Girona predictions & Betting Tips
Barcelona are the favourites for this match with odds of 1.25 with bet365, with Ernesto Valverde’s team currently top of La Liga with maximum points and a certain Lionel Messi on top form.
Girona are a local rival, the Catalans playing in La Liga for the first time this season. They held Atletico Madrid to a 2-2 draw back in August and also beat Manchester City in pre-season.
However, Barca are on a different level at least in terms of their attacking talent, and although Girona will be extra motivated we can’t see past a Barcelona win at 1.25 with bet365.
Lionel Messi scored 4 goals in the 6-1 midweek win over Eibar, and is in incredible form even for his sky high standards. This is reason alone to back the away win, with Messi there is always a chance.
That 6-1 scoreline was a little flattering as Eibar had more shots than Barca and created a number of good chances. This suggests that the match against Girona could be closer than some might think.
A 2-1 Barca win is priced at 9.00 with bet365. Messi has stolen the headlines, but we think there could be better value in backing strike partner Luis Suarez to score the first goal of the game at 4.5 with bet365.
Suarez has only scored once so far in La Liga this season, and will want to add to his tally sooner rather than later to match his total of 29 from last season.
If Real Madrid win earlier in the day against Alaves, Barca will be even more motivated to do the same and keep their 7 point lead at the top of the table.
Girona vs Barcelona Form
Girona host Barcelona at the Montilivi Stadium on Saturday night. It is a historic night for the home side as they play their illustrious local rivals for the first ever time in a competitive match.
Since their humbling 5-1 aggregate defeat to Real Madrid in the Super Cup, it’s been nothing but wins for Barca. Tuesday’s 6-1 thrashing of Eibar was their sixth in a row.

Girona picked up their first ever La Liga win at the end of August against Malaga. They also held Atletico to a 2-2 draw and were unlucky to lose to Sevilla.

Girona vs Barcelona Head To Head (H2H)
This is the first time Girona have played Barcelona in a competitive match, which is surprising given the teams are so close in proximity to one another. They have met twice in friendlies before, with Barca winning on both occasions.
