Can La Liga Odds Be Wrong? Girona’s Golden Boot Contender Fuels UCL Dreams

No matter what happens on Saturday, Girona’s season is one for the ages. Los Rojiblancos dared to challenge Real Madrid and Barcelona. Right now, they’re seven points ahead of Atletico Madrid, and finishing as the runners-up and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League would be like winning the title.

Their last home game was a walk in the park, crushing Cadiz 4-1. Eric Garcia, Ivan Nunez, Artem Dovbyk, and Cristian Portugues scored. Most recently, they defeated Las Palmas 2-0 with David Lopez and Dovbyk as the scorers.

Dovbyk is one of the main reasons to consider including Girona in your betting ticket. If the season ended today, he would win the Golden Boot with 19 goals. However, Alexander Sorloth (Villarreal) and Jude Bellingham (Real Madrid) are on the hunt with 17 goals each.

One of Dovbyk’s advantages, besides his talent, is that he’s in charge of taking penalties. And he’s very good at it.

Will Girona Upset Barcelona? Look for the Underdog!

Barcelona’s top scorer with 16 goals, Robert Lewandowski, scored a hat-trick against Valencia to win the game 4-2 on Monday.

That result allowed them some breathing room, as they now only depend on themselves to finish in second place. It also allowed them to return to the winning column after losing 4-1 to PSG and 3-2 to Real Madrid.

Prior to losing to Real Madrid, Barcelona was unbeaten on the road. Now, Los Azulgranas are 9-6-1, scoring in 14 of those matches.

Yes, this hasn’t been Barcelona’s best season, but we’re still talking about a team with talent to spare, especially now that Pedri Gonzalez is back at 100%. And let’s not forget about Lamine Yamal, who’s only 16 years old and already is one of the best wingers in the game.

The bottom line is you can expect goals in this match. Plus, if you were looking for an underdog to bet on, Girona is a great option.
