Football Bet of the Day: Back goals in Girona

Villarreal travel to Girona in La Liga tonight

Tobias Gourlay reckons the Yellow Submarine will spring a leak in La Liga tonight.


Girona v Villarreal
Tuesday 21:00

In Poland yesterday, Ruch Chorzow got the result they wanted, but we didn't, as the visitors shut down their hosts 2-0 for a rare clean sheet.

We're in Spain today and hoping to catch a few more goals as third-placed Girona entertain eighth-placed Villarreal in one of tonight's three La Liga games.

Michel Sanchez's Girona are this season's surprise package in Spain, and the Catalans have been especially strong at Estadio Municipal de Montilivi (W14-D2-L1). Last time out, they beat Barcelona 4-2. Five of their last eight games here have now delivered Over 3.5 Goals.

Marcelino's visitors are an even W6-D5-L6 on the road this term, though they've lost just once in their last seven. But they still have problems at the back: they're 13 road trips without a clean sheet, conceding 28 times in that period.

Travelling to teams currently above them in the table, the Yellow Submarine's results this season are: 1-3, 1-4, 5-3, 3-1, 3-2 and 1-1. With Over 3.5 Goals landing in 5/6 - plus the support from Girona's side - that's our bet on this one.
