Girona vs Real Sociedad Prediction & Betting tips
In the Spanish football league it is in this season in all areas of the table particularly exciting. Therefore, it is not surprising that even the gap between a relegation zone and a qualifier for the Europa League is only 13 points. As a result, a lot is possible for a number of clubs. On Monday, the spectators in Municipal de Montilivi can look forward to a highly interesting duel between Girona and Real Sociedad. A prognosis does not seem so easy at first glance after the recent success of Girona.
Girona is currently not very good. But the away win at Real Madrid last weekend meant that the Catalans were likely to regain a lot of self-confidence. However, this season Girona FC is not exactly characterized by a great home strength. Therefore, coach Eusebio Sacristan’s team would find it all the more important to be successful in this home game. The guests from the Basque Country have quickly returned to success under the new coach Imanol. As a result, you can now dream of qualifying for Real Sociedad again for Europe. On the trip to Girona, the mood among the Basques after a clear home win last weekend was certainly excellent. Crucial in this encounter should also be how far Real Sociedad can prove his previous away strength again.
For a long time, the team from Girona was one of the positive surprises in the current season’s series. However, coach Eusebio Sacristan’s team fell in December with a 1-1 draw at home in Atletico Madrid in early December.
But since this game, the Catalans have not been successful in ten league matches. The balance was absolutely catastrophic in this period with four draws and six defeats. Therefore, it was not surprising that the followers of Girona are increasingly worried about a possible descent at the end of the season. On the penultimate round Girona had promoted Huesca as a guest. The spectators in the stadium hoped at least against the bottom of the table on a home win.
But even this was nothing and Girona lost the game by two goals in the second half smooth 2-0. Since December Girona scored only seven meager goals and had to accept on the other side equal to 18 goals.
Last weekend Girona had to be the Champions League winner Real Madrid. But in retrospect, the welfare was just the right opponent, because at Real Madrid succeeded in a surprise success. But in the first round not much on a sense of achievement for the Catalans suggested. In the 25th minute, goalkeeper Yassine Bounou had to get the ball off the net after a header, and so it went with a 1-0 deficit in the break. In the second round Girona but got better momentum and could actually turn the game by goals from Cristhian Stuani and Portu and celebrate at the final whistle a 2-1 away win. Once again the injured Pere, Aday and Palacio can not play.
Real Sociedad has not been around for a long time this season. This led to a defeat in the context of the 17th match day against Alaves shortly before Christmas to dismiss Asier Garitano. The leaders decided to promote the previous coach of the second team Imanol Alguacil.
The promoted coach seems to have done a lot right from the start. Eventually, Real Sociedad improved significantly and set up a 2-0 away win at Real Madrid in the first game of the year. Meanwhile, the team from San Sebastian has already completed seven league games under the new coach and is still unbeaten. The balance sheet can be seen with four wins and three draws. Conspicuous at Real Sociedad is also that the defensive is again much better and goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli had to accept in seven games in total only five goals and four times even without conceding. On the other hand, in the same period, it was enough for twelve own hits of the Basques. On the penultimate round, Real Sociedad had to compete in Valencia. There the team of Imanol convinced by a strong defensive performance and kidnapped by a goalless draw at least a point from the Mestalla.
On the final day of the match Real Sociedad was able to buff up his not-so-impressive home record by beating Leganes 3-0 at home. Mikel Oyarzabal, who scored twice for the fourth home win of the season, was especially strong in this match. Things are much better for the Basques away. So it was enough in foreign matches at twelve games already for five wins and three draws. However, coach Imanol will have to relinquish the suspended Willian Jose and Theo Hernandez on Monday night, which is definitely a weakening for the Basques. To make matters worse, the failures of injured Illarramendi, Zaldua and Gorosabel added.
