Real Sociedad will host Girona at the Estadio Anoeta in San Sebastian, hoping to clinch the first home victory in La Liga this season.
The Whites and Blues are not going through the best of times, having collected 11 points after the opening eight league fixtures. Additionally, they’ve lost two out of three home matches to Barcelona and Valencia while being held to a 2-2 draw to Rayo Vallecano in the process. All three triumphs the Royal secured this season came on the road, as they currently have the best away record in the Spanish top flight. However, Asier Garitano’s players have immense problems when it comes to their defensive game, as they’ve only kept a clean sheet once so far.
On the other hand, with only two victories and three defeats, the visitors have just a 2-point lead over Athletic Bilbao who reside in the relegation zone. The White and Reds have failed to keep a clean sheet in the previous four La Liga clashes, having suffered two defeats in the past three encounters. However, the Catalans are still undefeated on the road, having outplayed Villarreal, while playing out two draws with Barcelona and Huesca in the process.
Both sides will enter the match severely weakened, with Jon Guridi, Theo Hernandez, Martin Castellanos, Joseba Zaldua, Mikel Merino, Diego Llorente, and Adnan Januzaj all set to remain on the stands in the home team. As for the visitors, Gorka Iraizoz, Pedro Porro, Johan Mojica, and Alex Granell should all skip the meeting due to various injury problems.
