On Thursday, Mallorca will face Girona in an important match at the Estadio Montilivi in the ongoing 2022-23 La Liga season.

In their previous match against Athletic Bilbao, they managed a 1-1 draw, but need to perform better in this game.

Girona, on the other hand, have exceeded expectations this season and are currently in eighth place in the league table. In their last game, they beat Sevilla 2-0, and they will be looking to replicate their success in this fixture.

Girona-Mallorca match preview

Girona and Mallorca will play each other in La Liga at Estadio Municipal de Montilivi on Thursday. The game will feature two teams that have a slim chance of qualifying for Europe through the 7th place in the league table.

Girona is in 8th place and has been pushing for European football recently, following a momentous win over Real Madrid in which Taty Castellanos scored four goals. However, Girona’s issue has been winning games when they are the favourites. Nonetheless, they have won five of their last six home matches and have scored the most goals in the league outside of the top three teams.

Mallorca, on the other hand, have been struggling with their away form and have lost nine of their last 11 games on the road, preventing them from seriously challenging the top seven. They are currently in 12th place and are three points behind Girona. Both teams also need Osasuna to lose the Copa del Rey final against Real Madrid to have any chance of qualifying for Europe. Mallorca dropped two points in the 96th minute against Athletic Bilbao on Monday, which did not help their cause.

Girona possible starting lineup:

Gazzaniga; Couto, Bueno, Juanpe, Hernandez, Gutierrez; Tsygankov, Martin, Oriol Romeu, Riquelme; Castellanos

Mallorca possible starting lineup:

Rajkovic; Augustinsson, Gaya, Valjent, Copete, Jaume Costa; Morlanes, Ruiz de Galarreta, Lee Kang-in; Muriqi, Ndiaye
