Real Sociedad vs Girona
Spanish La Liga
Date: Monday, 22 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Anoeta (San Sebastian).
Real Sociedad will be hoping to capitalize on a massive 1.3 victory over fierce rivals Athletic Bilbao in the Basque derby. They host Girona in the last game of the Matchday No 9 on Monday evening at Estadio Municipal de Anoeta.
It’s generally been a hot-and-cold campaign for the Basques so far in the season and they have a long way to go to become stern challengers for European positions. The second league win on the spin would make a perfect start and they could get it here against the struggling opposition.
Blanquivermell do not seem to be so tough to break down as they were in the previous term. They will go into this winless in four straight league ties and off the back of a disappointing 2-3 defeat to Eibar at their Estadi Municipal de Montilivi.
Real Sociedad vs Girona: Head-to-head
- The draw was the most common of outcomes in the short history of head matches between these two likes.
- It happened on three occasions in six games.
- Sociedad picked up two wins in the process, while Girona managed a single so far.
- Txuri-Urdinak claimed a demolishing 5-0 victory when the two teams last met each other in April at Anoeta.
Real Sociedad vs Girona: Prediction
Girona annulled a brilliant effort from their key man Christian Stuani with the lack of meticulousness at the back. Blanquivermell allowed as many as three goals two weeks ago against Eibar and we can expect them to have troubles to keep things tight at the back against Sociedad who have the momentum on their side after a win in the Basque derby.
On the other side, Girona are unbeaten on the road in this term of La Liga even though they’ve already played the likes of Villarreal and Barcelona away from home. Knowing that Sociedad are by no means a defensive-minded outfit, we will go with the BTTS as the primary betting option.
