The visitors suffered a 4-0 defeat to league leaders Real Madrid last time out, leaving them second in the table, while Athletic sit fifth, five points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid with a game in hand.

Athletic held Girona to a 1-1 draw in the league earlier this season, but the Catalan side won 3-2 at San Mames in the corresponding fixture last term, with the Lions’ last home win over Monday’s opponents coming in late 2018.

The Lions will be under no illusion when it comes to the size of their task in this game, and they will be looking to return to winning ways, having played out a goalless draw with bottom-placed Almeria last time out.

Athletic are also looking for success in the Copa del Rey this season, claiming a narrow 1-0 victory over Atletico in the first leg of their semi-final earlier this month.

Ernesto Valverde’s side are chasing their first top-four finish in La Liga for 10 years, and they will bring a five-game unbeaten run into Monday’s contest.

Girona have not been beaten by any other team in La Liga other than Real Madrid this season, and Los Blancos are emerging as the huge favourites to lift the trophy, but Michel’s side are still having a remarkable campaign.

The Red and Whites are now just two points ahead of third-placed Barcelona and five clear of fourth-placed Atletico  – who have both played a game more – so they need to put the four-goal defeat at Real behind them as soon as possible.

Girona have the second-best away record in La Liga this season, picking up 27 points from 12 matches, but Athletic have the third-best record at home, securing 29 points from their 12 games at San Mames Barria.
