Ready to rise
Things are quite straightforward for the hosts here, as they simply have an imperative of victory if they want to stay in the game for a possible European exit this season.
Girona performed quite well last time out, but the fact is that apart from home lately, their results are everything but satisfying, and realistically speaking, it is difficult to see them doing something special and delivering a surprise in the upcoming match.
