Girona vs Real Sociedad Preview

Girona vs Real Sociedad

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – Municipal Montilivi

Date: 17th November 2017

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Girona’s win over Real Madrid previously should easily pass as the result of the season.

They have been impressive since they came into La Liga this season but against an attacking Real Sociedad side they will need to be at their very best to outscore their visitors.

Their visitors have the 4th worst record defensively in the La Liga this season as they have conceded 1.92 goals per game.

This should make Girona feel they can get a win.

Girona have already netted in at least three of their last four games in all competitions.

Their wing backs usually take risks moving further forward and this could open up Sociedad.

Real Sociedad are very attractive going forward although most of their games have ended with both sides netting.

They have the third best goal record in La Liga with 2.18 goals scored per game as all three attacking players look great when combined together.

Mikel Oyarbazal has scored 6 goals in his last 8 games and could be the difference here once again.

These sides have not met in the top flight yet but they met in the Segunda division 4 times with each team winning a home game and the other two ending in draws.
