Girona and Barcelona are playing against each other in an official match for a just fourth time in the 21st century on Sunday. The home team are on 12th place in the standings with 24 points, only four points of the relegation zone. Girona don’t have a win in nine consecutive games in all competitions, but also don’t have a loss at home from October 27.

During the week, Blaugrana lost against Sevilla for Copa del Rey and ended their run of three consecutive wins. In La Liga, Barcelona don’t have a defeat in ten straight fixtures, while their only loss in an away game this season was versus Levante at the end of September.
Ousmane Dembélé, who is in a fantastic form, was injured in the last round of La Liga against Leganes and will miss the match on Sunday. Definitely, this will affect the team’s performance on the right wing, but this will an ideal opportunity for Philippe Coutinho who lost his position in the team as a starter. For Girona is returning the goalscorer Cristhian Stuani which definitely will improve the mood in the team.
