Barcelona have good momentum to leave Real Madrid at the top of the Spanish La Liga. Barcelona will face Girona in Week 28 of La Liga 2022-2023, Monday (10/4/2023) in the evening of ET. Barcelona currently leads the standings with 71 points from 27 matches, 12 points ahead of Madrid, who have played 28 times.
If Barcelona win over Girona, they will increase the gap to 15 points. With 10 matches remaining this season, Barcelona will be even more difficult to catch and closer to the long-awaited La Liga title.
If Madrid lose to Cadiz the following week, then Barca will be 18 points ahead with nine games remaining. This means that Barcelona only need one more victory to ensure the La Liga title.
Meanwhile, Girona is in 11th place in the standings with 34 points from 27 matches. Girona are winless in their last five matches in all competitions. Slowly but surely Girona managed to add 7 points from the last five matches in the league.
The closing match of Week 28 of the Spanish League is predicted to be fierce. Barcelona wants to bounce back from the crushing 0-4 defeat to Madrid in the Copa del Rey semifinals last week. Xavi said that his team must not fail and must fully focus on La Liga.
On the other hand, Girona still has to keep trying to widen the distance from the relegation zone. At present, Michel’s army is only 7 points ahead of the top edge of the red zone inhabited by Valencia and Espanyol, who have collected 27 points each.
In order to strengthen his position at the top of the standings, Xavi will not play around choosing a squad lineup. The former Al Sadd coach will certainly play Robert Lewandowski as the spearhead of the attack. Currently, the former Bayern Munich top scorer has recorded 17 goals and 6 assists for the club. Obviously Levi – Lewandowski’s nickname will be Barca’s key player tonight.
Meanwhile, Cristhian Stuani will be the mainstay of Girona. The Uruguayan striker is his team’s best player and top scorer with 7 goals from 23 matches. Experienced and physically strong, Stuani can exploit any gaps in the Barcelona defense with his movement and finishing.
