Barcelona welcome high-flying Girona

Barcelona play a second consecutive home game in two weeks against a Girona side that are still keeping the pace with the El Classico sides at the summit of La Liga.

Xavi’s side were able to keep a monumental clean sheet against Atleti last week in a vital six pointer, whilst Girona’s Cristhian Stuani scored two goals in the last ten minutes to dismantle Valencia.

The injury to Yangel Herrera should be a concern for the visiting side, as Barcelona could boss the midfield and suppress the fantastic creativity of Aleix Garcia, who rather untimely told the press this week that it would be ‘his dream’ to play for Barcelona one day.

Barcelona look fully confident at the moment, and could be in pole position to hand Girona only their second loss of the season, closing the gap between them to just a point.

Robert Lewandowski and Artem Dovbyk will be on display in a game between a pair of the top scorers in LaLiga. Joao Felix and Raphinha could sandwich the struggling Robert Lewandowski in attack.

Joao Cancelo is fully fit now and could slot straight again in as Barcelona aim to go toe to toe with the attacking Girona.
