Girona vs Leganes – Estadi Montilivi – Saturday 10th November – Kick off 7:45pm
For many people who watched Leganes beat Barcelona in September, it will come as a surprise to see the Madrid side in the bottom three of the table but that’s exactly where they are ahead of their trip to face Girona on Saturday night.
Last week’s draw at home to Atletico Madrid earned them their ninth point of the season but with just one of those picked up on the road, in a draw at Valencia, Girona are big favourites to win the weekend’s clash.
Eusebio Sacristan’s side picked up an impressive 1-0 win at the Mestalla last week to climb to tenth in the table and will look to build on that with their third win in a row against Los Pepineros.
Girona were comfortable 3-0 winners in the game at the Montilivi last season following a goalless draw in the capital.
Girona are boosted by the return of Cristhian Stuani and Juanpe to the squad after injury while Yassine Bounou is also fit enough to play. Johan Mojica and Aday Benitez are both out for pretty much the remainder of the season and are joined on the sidelines this week by Portu and Douglas Luiz who are still recovering from minor injuries.
Leganes remain without long term absentee Alexander Szymanowski as well as Unai Bustinza, Jose Arnaiz and Ezequiel Munoz for the Girona match.
Girona (3-4-2-1): Bounou; Ramalho, Bernardo, Muniesa; Porro, Granell, Pons, Planas; Roberts, Garcia; Stuani
Leganes (3-4-2-1): Cuellar; Tarin, Omeruo, Siovas; Juanfran, Recio, Perez, Silva; El Zhar, Oscar; Carrillo
Girona 3-0 Leganes
