Girona vs Real Sociedad Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

La Liga’s surprise package of 2017-18 campaign, Girona, continued to make progress in the league table after a 2-1 win over Levante. After a goalless first half, Borja Garcia provided Girona with the lead in the 58th minute. Christian Stuani continued his good form with the second goal for the visitors, and this only made Enes Unal’s late goal as a consolation. Real Sociedad returned to winning ways in the league after a 3-1 victory over Eibar. Willian Jose, Adnan Januzaj, and Mikel Oyarzabal scored inside the first 50 minutes to provide a significant advantage for Real Sociedad. A 72nd minute goal from Joan Jordan did little to put Eibar back in the game.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Real Sociedad have suffered some shock defeats on the road – against Levante and Getafe – in recent weeks. Girona come into the game on the back of a huge amount of confidence, even though the momentum may be slightly taken away by the international break. Even then, home advantage and the lack of a strong surge in form from Real Sociedad are factors that make me go with the victory for the home team. The last five league matches for Girona have seen both teams score. Real Sociedad have been in decent attacking form since the start of the season. Rather than go with both teams scoring in the game, I see value in betting on this game to produce more than 2.5 goals.

Girona win – 13/8
Total goals over 2.5 – 8/11

Girona saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Real Sociedad scored over 2.5 goals in 5 out of their last 10 games played

Real Sociedad have conceeded only 4 goals in their last 6 games against Girona

Girona Preview

Newly promoted Girona have been riding a wave of form in the last few matches, and they have been able to claim three consecutive league victories to move up to 10th in the table. It is a lofty position for a club that has never tasted La Liga football in the past. Girona have been able to produce a decent set of results even on the road, and it has been a major factor behind the club being able to completely do away with relegation trouble so far this season. Christian Stuani is the top scorer at the club with six league goals.

Girona Team News

José Aurelio Suarez (shoulder), Pedro Alcala (ankle), and Farid Boulaya (discomfort) are the players unavailable for Girona.

Real Sociedad Preview

Real Sociedad will not be reading too much into the victory over Eibar, as it was only the second victory in the last six matches for Eusebio and his men. After making a brilliant start to the campaign, Real Sociedad have fallen off the rail in recent weeks. A run of just two wins in the last six matches have contributed to the team falling almost outside the top 10. Yet, a recovery to once again compete for the Europa League places cannot be in the long distance, but the team has to contend with back-to-back away matches in all competitions before they think about making places in the table. Mikel Oyarzabal continues to hit new heights and he has been able to score 6 league goals this season.

Real Sociedad Team News

Jon Guridi (knee) and Imanol Agirretxe (thigh) are the players unavailable for Real Sociedad.
