Girona and Almeria square off in the first leg of their Segunda Division play-off semi-final on Wednesday at 8pm (UK time).
It’s a replica of last season’s play-offs semis, where fourth versus fifth meet in Catalonia for a place in the final against one of Leganes or Rayo Vallecano, and La Liga ultimately awaits the victor of this aspiring quartet.

Girona vs Almeria build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
After suffering relegation from La Liga in 2019, Girona have the opportunity to make their jaunt in the second tier brief, but Francisco’s men take on an Almeria side they failed to beat this campaign, drawing 0-0 in Andalusia and losing the home tie at Montilivi 1-0.
For Almeria, this is their sixth season in the Segunda Division. Almeriensistas reached the play-offs last term, where they actually met Girona and came up short, but their unbeaten record against the Catalan club this term will offer a crumb of comfort to recently-appointed Rubi.
- Girona (vs FC Cartagena): Carlos; Calavera, Bueno, Bernardo, Martinez; Kebe, Terrats, Monchu, Aday; Bustos, Saiz.
- Almeria (vs Sporting de Gijon): Fernando; Bunuel, De la Hoz, Fernandes, Centelles; Petrovic, Costa, Corpas, Aketxe, Villalba; Rodriguez.
The only major injury concern for Girona is that to Cristhian Stuani, who missed the final two games of the season with a hamstring issue.

Player to watch: Umar Sadiq (Almeria)
Umar Sadiq has been in scintillating scoring form this season, netting an outrageous 28 goals across all competitions, including 20 in the league. The 24-year-old Nigerian has lived a nomadic existence so far in Europe, staring his journey in Italy with Spezia, before moving on to capital giants Roma, where he endured a brief loan spell at Rangers, and then ultimately settling in Serbia with Partizan. Now in Spain, Sadiq’s stock has risen significantly and he will no doubt harbour aspirations of returning to one of Europe’s top five leagues, where he failed to make inroads in Serie A. Uncapped thus far, if the towering forward continues to dazzle on his current trajectory, a call-up to the Super Eagles will only be a matter of time.
