The midtable of Spanish La Liga will see a battle take place as Real Sociedad travel to face Girona FC on Monday.
Real Sociedad have finally recovered from a troublesome start to the season. The team is currently in the seventh spot and are just a few points shy from contesting for a spot in Europe. The team has shown they do have decent depth in the roster, and even though two important players will be missing in this game, the management expects its players to get a positive result out of this contest. This is the kind of confidence that helps the young guns out in the developing stages of their career.
Meanwhile, Girona FC finally broke their losing streak by winning the last game. The team finished in the 10th spot last time out, and currently sits int he 15th spot. They are not as good as they should be, but still, do have legitimate goal-scorers in their squad. The results have to improve for the team, or else it will see them fighting for survival at the end of the season. That situation is far from ideal when it comes to meeting the expectation the manager was set by the board at the start of this campaign.

Players to look out for-
⦁ Cristhian Stauni
The Girona FC striker is the leading man for the side this season and he will be looking to showcase what a truly good player he is in front of the goal. He has scored 13 goals so far in the league.
⦁ Mikel Oyarzabal
The Spanish forward is still relatively young and he has made his mark for the side so far in the season. He has found the back of the net 9 times in all competitions.
The two teams are evenly tied in this game and we foresee a scored draw as the result of this contest.
