“Basque Lions” Bilbao will go to the road to challenge newly-promoted Girona in the 13th round of La Liga in the 2022/23 season, and look forward to continuing to go on the winning track to reach the points position in the Champions League.
Bilbao have won 5 games in the first 7 rounds of La Liga this season, and their ranking in the standings is also very good, but in October they suffered 4 consecutive games without a victory until the last round at home 1-0 victory over Villa Lear then returned to winning ways. At present, Bilbao ranks sixth in the standings with 21 points, only 2 points away from the top four positions, so Bilbao still has the opportunity to take all 3 points to catch up with the earlier position.
In addition, Girona finished sixth in the La Liga last season and finally returned to La Liga after participating in the play-offs. However, Girona has only achieved 2 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses after 12 rounds of the league, including the previous 1-1 draw with defending champion Real Madrid. Ranked 17th.
In terms of lineup, Bilbao has captain Muniain and Danny Garcia injured, and Herrera is expected to return from injury. In Girona, Cess, Borja Garcia, Kobe and Juanpe are still recovering from injuries, and most of them will not play in this campaign.
It is worth mentioning that the two sides have only played against each other 4 times in La Liga history, and Bilbao has achieved 3 wins and 1 loss with some advantages, but only won 1 win and 1 loss in the away game. In their first meeting of the 2018/19 season, Bilbao beat Girona at home and away.
