Ousmane Dembele has been in excellent form recently and scored the only goal of the game in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in the Copa Del Rey.

Girona vs Barcelona preview

Girona have not kept a clean sheet all season, with the only other side failing to record a shutout being Elche who are 11 points adrift at the bottom of the table.

That Girona are comfortably in 11th place despite their poor defensive record is testament to the amount of goals they have been able to net this term, they are currently the fifth top scorers in the Spanish topflight.

Barcelona boast the meanest defence in the division having given up just six goals all season, yet both teams to score has paid out in 14 of Girona's last 15 La Liga matches and backing a repeat this weekend should certainly appeal.

Girona vs Barcelona tips and predictions

Both teams to score is on offered at 3/4 (1.75) while combining this selection with over 2.5 goals sees the odds rise to 11/10 (2.10).
