MADRID, 16 February (EUROPE PRESS) –

Girona and UD Almería are in charge of opening the twenty-second day of LaLiga Santander 2022-2023 this Friday (9 p.m.) with a direct duel for permanence at the Montilivi stadium, in which the locals also hope to take advantage of the weakness if visitor from his rival.

The Catalan team and the team from Almeria are two points apart in their battle to retain the category, but of the two only Joan Francesc Ferrer’s ‘Rubi’ is at risk of being relegated if he loses because he is there has two. and three points respectively for Valencia and Getafe, who meet at the Colosseum on Monday.

To avoid this possibility, the team from Almería will have to forget about all the weaknesses outside the Power Horse Stadium, which made them the worst visitor in the championship together with Elche. Almería still don’t know what it is to win at home, they only have three points and they also arrive in Montilivi after two consecutive defeats (Vallecas and at home to Betis) and with only one win (Espanyol) after the World Cup break.

In addition, the rojiblanco team will visit a Girona that shows its greatest strength in front of its fans, against which it added 18 of its 24 points and against which it only lost to Celta, Real Sociedad and FC Barcelona. The locals, who just lost another direct duel to Cádiz (2-0) without their best image, know the value of a sixth win at home, which would put them a bit more out of danger.

Míchel recovers the Uruguayan striker Cristhian Stuani, who is out due to suspension at the Nuevo Mirandilla, but loses left back Miguel Gutiérrez for the same reason. In addition, due to injuries, he does not have access to Yangel Herrera, Yan Couto and Valery Fernández, but Reinier Jesus and David López.

Rubi, for his part, has the good news that he has back midfielder Lucas Robertone and Brazilian striker Leo Baptistao, absent due to completing their cycle in the defeat against Betis, but waiting for the physical condition of Gonzalo Melero, Rodrigo Ely and Jose Pozo.
