Girona have struggled to match their standards from last season and despite being away from home, Almeria will fancy their chances of getting all three points.

The visitors are more attack-oriented but their attacking threat could be curtailed by Girona, who are more compact in their play. We are backing Almeria to secure maximum points with a narrow victory in addition to a clean sheet.
