Girona vs Real Sociedad predictions, H2H and match preview for this Monday’s game in La Liga. Read on for analysis, betting tips and predicted line-ups for the final game of match-day 25.
DATE/TIME – Monday 25th February, 21:00 (Spanish Time)
STADIUM – Montilivi
COMPETITION – La Liga
This Monday’s game sees Girona aiming to build on a fine win at the Bernabeu last weekend. They take on Real Sociedad who have been going nicely under Imanol and on paper it should be one of the better Monday night showdowns in recent weeks in La Liga.
Girona had been in freefall before they won 2-1 against Real Madrid. The sides below them have all struggled this weekend so they have a chance here to put some distance between themselves and the relegation fight. Some of their selection problems are easing now and Bernardo should return in defence for this one after his ban. The front three of Borja Garcia, Cristhian Stuani and Portu is a dangerous one and they certainly look to have the firepower to stay in this league although their poor home record is a concern.
Real Sociedad have some pretty major selection problems here which should aid Girona’s chances of an elusive victory in Catalonia. In-form striker Willian Jose and left-back Theo Hernandez are both suspended while their influential midfielder Asier Illarramendi misses out through injury again. Those are some pretty big losses. Sandro Ramirez should come in to lead the line but he is a player who has really lost his way following an unsuccessful spell in England.
We should see an open contest with both sides likely to be targeting the three points. Sociedad would move into the top six were they to win this and they look like European contenders now as we head towards the business end of the campaign.
Girona vs Real Sociedad Predictions
Score Prediction: 2-1 Girona
Betting Tip: Girona 0.0 Asian Handicap @ 1.71 with Spin Palace Sports (18+)
The absentees Sociedad have suggest this could be the game where their unbeaten start under Imanol ends. Willian Jose is a huge miss for them but they do have other goal threats so the visitors look capable of getting on the scoresheet. Girona though will be feeling really good after a brilliant 2nd Half display in Madrid and with their front three firing, Eusebio could get one over on his former employers here.

Cristhian Stuani has been Girona’s main goal threat all season with 13 goals in La Liga, the best tally by a non-Barcelona player. He is sure to play a big role in determining the outcome of this one.
