Hello and Welcome to Sportskeeda’s LIVE Coverage of the Toyota Yaris LaLiga World. Next up is the match between Indian Super League side Kerala Blasters and LaLiga team Girona FC.
...
Kerala Blasters would look to seek redemption against the mighty Girona FC after they suffered a 0-6 drubbing at the hands of Melbourne City in the opening game of the tri-club tournament. While Girona FC would look to secure their first trophy outside Europe today.

The LaLiga side pumped in six goals over Melbourne City in their opening game, less than 24 hours ago. Girona was expected to field a completely different side against Kerala Blasters to provide much-needed recovery time to the players who took to the field yesterday. However, the Girona Manager begs to differ. He stressed on fielding the same players today as well in the Pre Match Press Conference. A huge crowd is also expected to throng the stands for this mega encounter. 

Girona go into this game as hot favourites while Kerala Blasters would be looking to concede as less as possible. A win for the Blanquivermell looks inevitable.
