Girona take on the visitors Getafe in the round 2 match of Spanish LaLiga. The match will be played on Monday, August 22nd at Estadio Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
Girona is finally back in La Liga. “Girondins” not so long ago made their debut at this level. And even managed to hold out for 2 seasons in a row. And, having taken off, they invariably fought to the end for the return. The scenario was approximately the same: there was not enough strength for a direct ticket and no luck in the play-offs. It was not particularly believed in success in the last postseason, where Stuani and company qualified only from 6th place. But, such impression, the previous negative experience has helped them there. After knocking out Eibar and Tenerife, the Catalans returned to La Liga. Of course, help from colleagues in the franchise, Manchester and New York City, becomes the usual help - this is how they got Jan Couto, Yangel Herrera and Castellanos in the MLS. Miguel Gutierrez has been signed from Real Madrid. But they didn't catch on for a point in the 1st round anyway: Valencia won at home thanks to Soler's only goal from the penalty spot.

Getafe will try to improve compared to the previous season. The Blues owed their success in previous years to Pepe Bordalas. He, having raised the club from the Segunda, took 5th place with them in the LaLiga and played in the playoffs of the Europa League. But already in the course of the tempo before last, it became clear that the peak of this cooperation was over. However, a year ago, without a long-term mentor, the club failed to start the new championship. They were brought out of the slump by Quique Sanchez Flores, who had already worked here. With him it turned out to escape in the end from the relegation zone. Given the fact that several players left in the summer (primarily Matias Oliveira, but with generous compensation from Napoli), and several dubious moves were made in strengthening, such as the purchase of Borja Mayoral, they did not expect a special breakthrough even now. The start of the new cycle in La Liga turned out to be unsuccessful, but expected: 0-3 from neighboring Atlético.
The last time the teams played within the 2018/2019 season. Then Girona took a draw at home, but lost in Madrid 0-2. Both clubs need, first of all, the result. Still, their weaknesses should not be overestimated. We recommend taking "over 1.5 goals"
Prediction for the match: Over 1.5 scored goals.
