Girona vs Athletic Bilbao Match Analysis & Prediction
27/11/2023 11:00 pm
Girona will be looking to record their 12th win of what has been a remarkable 2023-24 La Liga campaign to date when they host Athletic Bilbao on Monday night.
The hosts are currently top of the table on 34 points from their opening 13 matches, while Athletic sit in fifth place, boasting 24 points from their first 13 games in a strong start.
Girona are two points ahead of second-placed Real Madrid, but Los Blancos will face Cadiz on Sunday, so there is a chance that Michel’s side could be in second by the time that this game kicks off, while they are three clear of fourth-placed Barcelona after the Catalan side’s encounter with Rayo Vallecano.
The White and Reds are on a run of six straight victories across all competitions, including their last five in La Liga, beating Rayo Vallecano 2-1 in their last game before the international break.
Athletic could drop down the table by the time that this match kicks off, but they will enter the contest in strong form winning their last three games across all competitions.
Ernesto Valverde’s side progressed in the Copa del Rey through a 2-1 victory over Rubi at the start of the month, while they have won their last two in the league, beating Villarreal 3-2 and Celta Vigo 4-3 in two excellent matches.
The Lions will certainly have their eyes on a European spot this season, and this will be a good test of their credentials, as girona have been the best team in La Liga so far in 2023-24.
