Game Preview


Real Sociedad and Girona FC square off in LaLiga matchday 1 on August 12, 2023 at Reale Arena in San Sebastian, Spain.


Real Sociedad stepped it up and placed in fourth position, securing themselves a Champions League qualification slot after competing in the Europa League the previous campaign. Sociedad wants to open up a fresh campaign with a victory over Girona despite the likelihood that it won’t be as successful as the previous one. Sadly, they will be forced to go through it without David Silva because he had a career-threatening injury during the preseason. Real Sociedad played Osasuna and Sporting CP, losing both of those games as part of their preparation for the upcoming challenges.


Alejandro Catena scored a hat-trick as Osasuna upset Imanol Alguacil’s squad 3-1; nonetheless, Sporting Lisbon humbled them 3-0 the following week. However, Real Sociedad’s lone goal versus Bayer Leverkusen last Friday evening gave them their first preseason victory.



Last season, Girona enjoyed a fantastic campaign by their usual standards. They managed to finish 10th without having to worry about being relegated. They won’t mind another mid-table, secure finish at all. Oriol Romeu, one of the club’s best players, left for Barcelona as a consequence of the team’s successful season this past season. However, they have bolstered their squad with the additions of Iván Martin from Villarreal, Daley Blind on free agency, and Pablo Torre on loan via Barce.


The past weekend, Michel’s team played FC Andorra, and the game ended in a 2-2 tie after they fell behind twice before rallying with goals from Yangel Herrera and Cristhian Stuani.


6 of the 10 games involving Real Sociedad and Girona that were played ended in draws. In matches between Real Sociedad and Girona, Real Sociedad has 3 victories whereas Girona has just one. The final score of their most recent match at Reale Arena was 2-1. The match in Girona ended with a 5-3 victory for Sociedad after a scoring frenzy.
