Alaves vs Girona: Probable Lineups

This Friday night, Alaves and Girona lock horns at Mendizorrotza Stadium in a La Liga clash with contrasting ambitions.

Girona, already buzzing with Champions League qualification, are setting their sights on the coveted second-place trophy. Currently sitting pretty in second, just a point ahead of Barcelona, they’re determined to hold onto that precious position.

Alaves, comfortably mid-table, are looking to end the season on a high and maybe even cause an upset against a high-flying opponent. They’re riding the wave of a recent win against Valencia and will be keen to keep that momentum going.

Alaves have suffered a blow with Andoni Gorosabel’s injury, which might keep him out for the rest of the season. Ruben Duarte and Aleksandar Sedlar are also unavailable due to fitness issues, while on-loan forward Samu Omorodion sits this one out due to suspension.

There’s likely to be just one change to the Alaves starting lineup, with Rafa Marin replacing the injured Gorosabel at right-back.

Girona have their own injury woes, with Joel Roca and Ricard Artero sidelined. There are also question marks over Borja Garcia, Cristhian Stuani, and Savio’s availability.

Savio limped off during the win over Barcelona, potentially opening the door for Portu, who bagged a brace as a substitute. David Lopez is expected to be fit despite being subbed off last week, while Aleix Garcia and Yangel Herrera are likely to continue their midfield partnership.

Artem Dovbyk, Girona’s 20-goal La Liga machine, will spearhead their attack once again.

Probable Lineups

Alaves: Sivera; Marin, Abqar, Tenaglia, J Lopez; Benavidez, Blanco; Vicente, Guridi, Simeone; Kike Garcia

Girona: Gazzaniga; E Garcia, D Lopez, Blind, Gutierrez; Herrera, A Garcia; Tsyhankov, Martin, Portu; Dovbyk
