Barcelona vs Girona: 3 key things to look forward to
#2 Expect Girona to be extra-defensive
Sunday’s game between Barcelona and Girona is not expected to be very open. Girona know very well what Barca is capable of and, having seen PSV swept aside in midweek, they also must have been preparing a plan by now.
But whatever that plan may be, it is obvious that the club cannot afford to open up against the Catalans. Very few teams are able to stand up to Barca when it comes to open play, therefore, Girona can be expected to shut up shop and deploy a defensive approach.
This is a side that has suffered heavy defeats to Barcelona in the past and they will definitely not want a repeat of this on Sunday.
But since they cannot match their opponents, the best thing to do would be to simply defend and hope that a cricket scoreline is avoided.
