The wishes of Sabadell and Girona are mixed in the Nova Creu Alta

The Harlequins, who haven't won at home since November, need to win to escape relegation. The rojiblancos, for their third win in a row and the playoff.


Nova Creu Alta hosts this Wednesday afternoon a Catalan derby in which Sabadell and Girona will put their wish lists on the table (follow the match live on While the harlequins recovered their oxygen last day after beating Lugo, the rojiblancos seem to be back on the crest of the wave. After the moral blow that won them last Sunday at Albacete going back in the added, they will look for their third victory in a row. Neither of them has a margin of error because if Sabadell knows that to stay out of the descent they must add three at a time, Girona needs it to continue their climb to sixth place. And, after Rayo's loss to Sporting last Tuesday, he can sleep to just one point if they win.

The descent is scorching Sabadell and he hopes that Nova Creu Alta will start to help him. So far in the league, the Harlequin fiefdom has been a bargain for the visitors because only 13 points have been retained. And to see the last victory, it is time to go back to last November, in the duel against Las Palmas (3-1). There are many pending accounts at home, but for weeks Antonio Hidalgo has tried to make his staff see that he must live from day to day. For this reason, the victory against Lugo, although it pushes them forward, no longer works because Girona is going to shake them. The coach will not be able to count on the suspended Pierre Cornud and the appearance of Josu Ozkoidi in the left lane would be one of the few novelties, if not the only one, that he presents in his starting block. Placing Heber Pena as a right-winger, the Edgar Hernández-Stoichkov duo at the top and releasing Adri Cuevas in the midfield paid off and Sabadell hopes to continue picking them up.

In addition, one of the most positive aspects of the Harlequinade block in Lugo was leaving a clean sheet (the first in the entire month of March). Not only is Mackay in excellent shape, but Juan Ibiza and Óscar Rubio have become untouchable. None is sparing efforts and the fact is that against Girona the mistakes, normally, are punished with goals against. And more considering that Mamadou Sylla and Stuani arrive at Nova Creu Alta in a sweet moment. The Senegalese accumulates three games scoring and the Uruguayan has returned from his injury wanting to claim. Both scored against Albacete and Francisco meditates aligning them together at the top. The rojiblanco coach recovers the sanctioned Bernardo and Bueno and both aim to start forming a rear of three centrals together with the youth Arnau because Juanpe is doubtful due to annoyances. And more doubts appear perhaps in the center of the field because Samu Sáiz is opposing to start. Girona cannot speculate because the train that goes to the playoff does not stop.
