Girona, with no margin for error if it wants to maintain a playoff aspiration, receives Albacete this afternoon in Montilivi in a duel marked by the needs of both teams, who are obliged to add three points if they want to stay alive in the fight for their respective objectives.
With the return of Stuani to the call as a great novelty along with Monchu and Cristóforo, Francisco will have to invent in defense, where he only has a pure center-back available: Juanpe Ramírez. Bernardo Espinoza and Santi Bueno are the main casualties to receive Albacete after having to serve a penalty game each.
Seven points behind Rayo, who will not play this day and who is currently the one who marks the sixth and last place that gives access to play the promotion to First Division, Girona needs to cut distances as soon as possible and more taking into account the direct duel that both will play in a few weeks, so adding three points against the penultimate classified and at home should be mandatory.
Albacete, meanwhile, comes to Montilivi after beating a direct rival at home such as Cartagena after six games without knowing victory and right now they are alive in the fight for salvation, two points behind Logroñés, who, with 31, he is the one who marks salvation.
