In La Liga, Villarreal will play Girona at the Estadio de la Ceramica on January 22. After a slow start to life under new manager Quique Setien, the hosts have recently begun to produce results. In their most recent league match, Villarreal and Celta Vigo played to a 1-1 draw.
After an uncharacteristically lackluster offensive performance in which they managed just three shots throughout the game, they could not possibly have any complaints. With 28 points from 17 games, Villarreal is in fifth place in the league table.
In contrast, Girona struggled upon their return to the top flight, but they have recently rebounded and are attempting to maintain their La Liga status. Cristhian Stuani and Yangel Herrera scored in the second half to help them overcome an early deficit in their last league game, a 2-1 comeback victory over struggling Sevilla. With 21 points from 17 games, the visitors are 11th, which is midway up the table.
The most recent result for Villarreal ended their seven-game winning streak in all competitions. This season, they have only lost one home league game. In contrast, Girona has not lost in any of their last three games or in any of their last seven La Liga contests. However, they have struggled on the road this season and may lose here.
Prediction: Villarreal 1-0 Girona
Villarreal and Girona will play for the tenth time on Sunday, with Girona leading 5-4. In the fixture’s last three games, the visitors have failed to score. In their previous seven competition-based games, neither team has kept a clean sheet.
The Yellow Submarines have lost only one of their five league games this season, all at home. Girona has won only one of its five league games this season away from home. This season, Villarreal has given up 13 La Liga goals. Only Barcelona (6), league leaders, have conceded fewer goals.
Due to injuries, Villarreal will be without Giovani Lo Celso, Nicolas Jackson, Alfonso Pedraza, and Kiko Femenia. Arnaut Danjuma is unlikely to play despite rumors about his future.
After being rested in the Copa del Rey, Pepe Reina should be back in the goal, and Jose Luis Morales and Aissa Mandi are expected to play.
Mandi may partner Pau Torres in the middle, as Raul Albiol was substituted at halftime against Real Madrid and will need to be evaluated before this game.
