Thanks to a largely healthy group of players, there’s just the lone fitness issue for the Girona FC gaffer Míchel Sánchez Muñoz to be concerned about. Santiago Bueno (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
We’re envisaging that Girona FC will have to play well to get anything against this Málaga team who we think might well just have the edge.
We’re going for a good tussle with a 1-0 win for Málaga at the end of the 90.
Should be a close one.
