Girona and Celta opened the third day in a fascinating match


Girona and Celtic open the third day of Montilivi League. At 8:00 pm, Del Cerro Grande will start a game that looks very attractive on Catalan soil. With only two games played, the people from Girona will be hoping to repeat with success after the wonderful sensations left by Míchel’s men against Getafe. The Galicians will travel with the clear aim of adding their first victory in the Liga, after drawing against Espanyol and losing against Real Madrid.

The rojiblancos added a gray game in Valencia, but with the performance of last Monday and the performance of the new additions, the confidence is highest to accumulate a new victory at home. The key, according to Michel himself in the pre-match press conference, he was under pressure. This is also one of the differences that separates the Getafe party from Celta. Against the Azulones, the team began to hold the ball consistently, patiently recovering the lines of the Madrilenians. The game against those Coudet It will be different, as the Vallecano coach predicts that the Celestials will want to take on the Catalans and that is why Girona will try to influence the pressure of the group to assume the style of play they want to show.

The Argentine coaches came to Montilivi with the intention of showing that the first two days were an accident. Celta are showing a good game and have suffered a lot of punishment in the two games already played. In the first league match against the Parakeets they reached 72 minutes two goals away but the Catalans ended up equalizing from the eleven meters in the 98th minute. Against Real Madrid, Celta enjoyed excellent minutes on one of the most difficult courses in the category. The tie Aspas put on the scoreboard in the first half was not enough to score, as the Whites sealed the match 4-1.

The rojiblancos will have serious doubts about Míchel’s plans. Rodrigo Riquelme is doubtful for the match after a blow to his shoulder, caused by a clash in the last game against Quique Sánchez Flores’ men. Borja García, Iván Martín and Ibra Kébé continue to improve, so he could be replaced by Samu Saiz or even the recently incorporated Reinier. The Galicians do not show losses in the form of injury, although they do in the form of a transfer after the departure of Santi Mina to Al Shabab.

A fierce rivalry is expected in both areas, in the pressure in the dangerous zone and in the fight for the ball. Both teams want to show their game and the keys will be set by rhythm, execution and concentration. In addition, one of the most attractive duels in pairs of battering rams can take place. If Míchel repeats the procedure, Taty and Stuani could play, while Paciencia and Iago Aspas could do so for Celta. Undoubtedly, four strikers who have already scored in this League and are called upon to bring a lot of joy to their respective fans.
