Ponferradina – Girona de LaLiga Smartbank: Schedule and where to watch on TV

Girona will have to survive again without Stuani

Time: 19.00

There are moments that should be erased. Go back in time and do what you can to act differently. Today this is impossible, so it is best to learn from mistakes. Enric Franquesa committed one the day he made his debut in an official match with the Girona jersey. A bad presentation card for the Catalan, who saw the red card in Gijón before the break, when his team tied up a rival who played at an inferiority. Serious decision, which would end up conditioning a clash that ended with a 2-0 against. He paid for the broken dishes and only appeared in four of the next eight games. In two of them, to play a couple of times and thank you.

Carles rosell

As you learn from everything, Franquesa has been able to wait for her opportunity and this time she has taken advantage of it. The goal he scored in Castellón in October and served to add three important points is joined by an increasingly consolidated presence. Antonio Luna’s injury has helped him, although his performance also draws a growing line.

"I’m happy because I enjoy continuity and I have more and more minutes. I want to give everything to each game. I feel good because I play and now I want the team to win again", value. Is "happy" on the grass and also outside, where you sit "like at home" because in Girona he has found a team that "represents me on and off the field". It helps, and a lot, to have participated without interruption in the last seven games, League and Cup. "I play more than before, which makes me happier and more eager. It is a pride and a pleasure to be here".

Girona leaves two points in Ponferrada

Talk about him and Girona, that "despite adversity" has closed the first round with 30 points, something that "it is not too bad". Claims to be "optimistic" and is convinced that "We will have a good second half of the League because we are growing and we conceded few goals". Remember that "we have suffered many casualties", which has complicated things", but states that "there is a very good wardrobe, we are a pineapple and together we have overcome it".

And now, the Cup against Cádiz. "It will be exciting. Last year I was lucky to really enjoy this competition. There are teams that do not give it so much importance, but if it is faced with the same enthusiasm as the League it can be very positive for everyone. Good dynamics always help, especially if you win matches against First Class rivals. That gives you a dose of morale and confidence that can be very useful to us. Each competition must be faced to the maximum", ditch.  

The transfer of Mojica to Elche, almost ready

Johan Mojica has a foot and a half in Elche. The still Girona player – he has a contract until 2022 – will change his scene, a few months after reaching an agreement to wear the Atalanta shirt. The experience in Italy has not been prolific and now that the market is open again, he wants to return to Spain to make the jump to the First Division.

Elche was already interested in him in the summer, but then the possibility of playing Serie A and the Champions League weighed more. Mojica has ended up regretting because he has not played as much as he expected: 13 games, four as a starter. The footballer has reached an agreement with the Elche team, who want to strengthen the left wing of their defense. 

Quique Jail: "The team needed a cheer like this"

The great step forward of Santi Bueno

Now Girona and Elche need to agree, something that will occur in the next few hours if nothing goes wrong. Jorge Almirón, French-green coach, wants to have Mojica as soon as possible. He leaves on loan until June and the elevated record of the Colombian will be borne by the Elche club. 

Satisfied by Girona’s victory against Cádiz, Francisco Rodríguez insisted that the team’s priority "It’s the league, but the Cup is exciting" and that the whole of Montilivi will continue "fighting to get through rounds, to get as far as possible".

Girona transfers

"Happy", the Girona coach celebrated that, "against a difficult opponent", multiple players "they have given a very good version", and, at the same time, assured that "it’s time for everyone to go 100% and hit their prime. We need you all".

With Stuani and all the illusion in the world

Elche makes the arrival of Colombian Johan Mojica official

"Increasing competitiveness is to the benefit of the bloc for the future and next Saturday’s game, which is what is really important"Francisco added, already setting his sights on the Catalan derby against Espanyol, the leader of the Second Division. 

Girona and Espanyol open fire for the second round this afternoon in Montilivi. A derby that will surely make Espanyol’s favoritism in each game this season take a back seat. Francisco’s team has already demonstrated that it is capable of beating the Blue and Whites in the first round (1-2) and, with the desire to repeat it, will jump to the pitch today. Opposite will be, despite everything, the intractable leader and, according to Francisco, “clearly the best team in the category.”

Led by De Tomás and company, those of Vicente Moreno will try to start off on the right foot the second part of a championship in which they are going at a record pace. The locals will look for a triumph that allows them to continue watching the play-off positions closely while the parakeets chase a coup against an important rival to continue their triumphal walk through Second.

Stuani returns

Girona is still unable to count on the injured Juanpe and also sees how Luna has relapsed from his injury. In addition, Terrats, who was going to start, is low after testing positive for COVID-19. Instead, Stuani can return to eleven and Bustos has already served his penalty. The absence of Terrats joins that of Gerard Gumbau, sanctioned, which is a headache for Francisco. The Andalusian coach doubts between aligning Ibra Kebé and Seba Cristóforo with Monchu or returning to 4-2-3-1. Nor is Francisco clear whether to play with the two former Blue and White strikers, Cristhian Stuani and Mamadou Sylla from the start together.

Girona, to break his parakeet badge

For his part, Vicente Moreno does not trust Girona, who he says “will be fighting in the upper part for sure at the end of the season.” The Blue and White coach has the entire squad available for the game. The coach will once again bet on Sergi Darder in the middle of the field as a catalyst for the game with Melamed a little more advanced. Above, the trident formed by Embarba, RDT and Puado threatens the defense of Girona. The reunion on the pitch between David López and Stuani will be one of the duels to follow.

Probable lineups:

Girona: Juan Carlos, Calavera, Franquesa, Bernardo, Bueno, Cristóforo, Kebé, Monchu, Stuani, Samu Sáiz and Aday

Espanyol: Diego López, Miguelón, Pedrosa, Calero, David López, Bare, Darder, Embarba, De Tomás, Melamed and Puado

Time: 18:15 (Goal / Movistar LaLiga)

Girona and Espanyol will measure their strength this Saturday in Montilivi (18:15) in a key derby for the locals so as not to get off the fight for the play-off since it can serve the parakeets to completely eliminate a direct rival. A derby is always a derby. There is little use for favoritism in this type of match, as was seen in the first round match, where Girona, loaded with casualties, gave the great bell at the RCDE Stadium (1-2). Of course, the status of favorite is not taken away by anyone in any game this season from Espanyol, who will also be forced to win in Montilivi tomorrow.

In that sense, Girona will have against the historical factor that says that the Blue and Whites have always won in their fiefdom in a league match. They have been twice, the only ones that Espanyol has visited him in the league and they have always been victorious. It was when the Girona team played in the First Division (17-18 and 18-19) and on both occasions Espanyol took the three points (0-2 and 1-2).

In the last (18-19), the victory was the ‘sorpasso’ of David Gallego’s men and the beginning of the Eusebio Sacristán’s plummeting, who would end up going down. Curiously, in Cornellà, the statistics are turned and it is Girona that has always taken the three points in three visits.

Special duel for Sylla

Girona does not arrive in good dynamics to the derby. Three draws and a defeat have made Francisco’s men lose steam, who are also at odds with the goal. Tomorrow the arms of Girona will be two former blue and white like Stuani and Sylla. “When a team does not score goals, they usually look at their forwards and I am one. It is also true that we have been missing the one who should be our reference (Stuani), although that should not be an excuse. We have not been playing well and thus it is more difficult to generate chances, “Sylla said this Thursday.

Vicente Moreno: "It is important to beat the rivals in the upper part"

The Granollers player who went through the youth, subsidiary and first team was full of praise for his former team: “Espanyol is possibly among the three best teams in the category, for sure. We have to try to make sure that his people at the top are not comfortable ”.
