Girona manager Michel
Michel has led Girona to their first ever Champions League finish

Paul Higham has compiled a 9/25.50 Bet Builder treble for Friday's La Liga game between in-form sides Alaves and Girona.

Three wins in a row has seen Girona secured their Champions League spot, while three wins in a row for Alaves has seen them secure their Serie A safety.

There's still a bit more to play for this season though, with Alaves looking for their first ever top-half finish and Girona hoping to finish in second - above the mighty Barcelona.

That would be some achievement so Michel's free-scoring Girona are 10/111.91 favourites for an away win against an Alaves side that has just strung together three clean sheets.

Leg 1: Over 2.5 goals

This is all on Girona, who have seen four of the last five matches go over 2.5 goals, and we're backing them to trump Alaves' more modest record.

Only Almeria and Villarreal can better Girona's record, so we'll take the 20/231.87 on over 2.5 goals here in the hope the visitors will lead the way.

As even if there's nothing too vital on the line, the way Girona play just promotes chances and goals so we should be able to cover this at a canter.

Leg 2: Artem Dovbyk to score

After a scintillating run we'll back Artem Dovbyk to score anytime at 11/102.11 and find the net for the sixth game in a row.

The Ukrainian has been in form all season but has taken it to another level down the stretch and with plenty of service should be able to score again.

Leg 3: Antonio Blanco 2+ fouls

It's not that a dirty game is expected, more that Girona's direct style will put pressure on the defence and midfield of Alaves.

And if that's the case then Antonio Blanco to give away 2+ fouls at 10/111.91 is certainly a reasonable bet - as it's landed in the last three games.

Blanco has had multiple fouls in 10 of his last 13 outings so there's plenty of longevity in him being pulled up by the ref.
