Girona failed to be more creative last time out on the road to Oviedo when they took only a point in a 0:0 stalemate.
The guests did have a significant ball possession advantage during the whole encounter, but obviously lacked more creativity, while the hosts accepted to be involved in a more passive encounter, so it wasn’t surprising that we haven’t witnessed any action in goal-terms here.
Girona is currently at the 16th spot in LaLiga 2, having eight points collected so far in the campaign.
Left-back Junca (4/0) is out injured, as well as talented forward Moreno (1/0).
Almeria caught up with the momentum, as they are currently enjoying a two-match positive run, winning over Tenerife last time at home with a 3:1 result.
After a goalless first part, the hosts visibly appeared better during the second, taking a double lead over Ramazani (a penalty) and Sadiq. Even though the guests spice this one a bit when they managed to reduce from another penalty in the 81st, they shattered all their hopes for a complete return as they scored an own goal only six minutes later.
Almeria is at 3rd spot on the table, having two points less than leaders from Gijon.
The guests should keep missing central defender Carrico (no performance so far), but also left full-back Akieme (5/0) and right-back Bunuel (4/0).
The far bigger offensive potential
As mentioned, Almeria is looking good lately and has the means to pull this one out, but in matches like this, I can not exclude a draw as a possibility, as the majority of squads in LaLiga 2 have their ups and downs throughout the season and can not be fully trusted, despite their great offensive quality.
