Real Zaragoza host Girona at the Estadio la Romareda in the Spanish Segunda Division on Sunday, with both sides having contrasting seasons so far.
Zaragoza are currently 15th in the league, 13 points above the relegation zone. Juan Ignacio Martinez’s side have been poor of late and are winless in their last three games. They will hope to turn things around with a win against Girona on Sunday.
Girona, on the other hand, have been flying of late and are currently fourth in the league. Michel’s side have won their last five games on the trot and will look to take that momentum into the game against Zaragoza on Sunday.
Both sides will be looking to win the game for different reasons and that should make for an interesting matchup.
