Girona Prediction

Girona put an end to a miserable sequence of results in La Liga last time out when they recorded what seemed an extremely unlikely looking 2-1 win away at Real Madrid which ended a run of four defeats on the trot and a sequence of 10 league matches without a win in the Spanish top flight.

Recent losses to Real Betis, Barcelona, Eibar and Huesca had threatened to dump Girona into the relegation mire, but the hosts’ win at Real Madrid was much needed and also just about kept their heads above water for the time being.

However, a run of six matches without a win on home turf still continues to threaten Girona’s top flight status and with a home record of 2-5-5 11/18 means they’re by no means out of the woods yet, as they’ve gained just one win from their last nine matches on home soil.

In addition, the hosts have failed to score in 5 of their 12 home matches to date, whilst keeping just two clean sheets at their Estadi Municipal de Montilivi so far this season. The bigger picture tells us that Girona have managed to gain just two home wins from their last 17 home matches in La Liga.


Key-Facts – Girona v Real Sociedad

  • Girona have won just 1 of their last 9 home matches in La Liga
  • Girona have won just 2 of their last 17 home matches in La Liga
  • Real Sociedad are unbeaten in their last 7 matches overall in La Liga


Real Sociedad Prediction

Real Sociedad occupy 8th place on the Spanish top flight league ladder and head into this Monday night clash at Girona on the back of a useful seven match sequence without defeat which has maintained their push for a Europa League qualifying spot as they trail 6th placed Deportivo Alaves by just three points.

The visitors also possess a superior goal difference over Deportivo Alaves so therefore, a win at Girona on Monday night would see Real Sociedad jump into 6th place, so there’s plenty of incentive for the visitors in this encounter.

Recent wins against Real Madrid (away), along with victories against Espanyol, Athletic Bilbao and Leganes as well as points picked up with draws against Rayo Vallecano, Huesca and Valencia have kept Real Sociedad in the frame for a top six finish.

Real Sociedad possess an away record of 5-3-4 16/13 and although they recently suffered back-to-back defeats at Real Betis and Getafe, the visitors have since steadied the ship with a three match unbeaten run on the road ahead of this trip to Girona.

Betting Tips Verdict

It remains to be seen whether Girona have turned a corner, especially at home, while Real Sociedad’s recent form should ensure they get at least a point here.
