It has been more torrid for Girona, who have just a win, and five points to show from their last five matches and will be hoping to have it better against a Levante side on seven points from a possible 15 in their last five matches. For Levante, the loss to Barcelona in mid December was well expected but falling to 19th placed Rayo Vallecano must have come with a lot of soul searching during the festive season and they will want to greatly improve on that, and the fact that they have conceded 11 goals in the last three matches. On a more positive note for Levante, they have managed two clean sheets in the last five matches while Girona have none in the same run but they have conceded just six goals in the last five, compared to Levante who have shipped in 11 in the same run. Girona have lost their last two away matches and they will need to turn up well for this as they face a side on three home wins in the last five matches. The three are their only home wins in La Liga this season, and on the other hand, Girona, who have five wins in the season, have also managed three away from home. The big difference between the two sides comes in their defensive and attacking qualities; Girona, with 18 goals so far, have relied on Christian Stuani for most of the season, and he has done well, netting 11. But the Catalan side has conceded 20, leaving them on a negative goal difference. It is worse for Levante, who have conceded 32 in 17 matches but have scored more than Girona (28). The last two meetings between the sides ended in 1 – 1 draws while Girona have managed just one clean sheet in the 10 meetings between the sides and Levante three. Levante have four wins and Girona two in the 10 meetings.
