Worth mentioning: After their surprise win over Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu, Girona are performing admirably and lost only one of their next five games, winning three in the process. Prior to that run, the Catalan side were on a thirteen game streak without a victory. Only the loss 2:3 to Valencia from the last five outings involving Girona featured over 2,5 goals and witnessed goals at both ends. Their home form needs improvement though, as the team have recorded a single victory in the last ten games in front of their own supporters.
Athletic Bilbao lost just one game from the last seven outings and are unbeaten in the last three. Much like Girona, just one of their last five encounters produced over 2,5 goals, but two games saw both teams to score. Absolutely the same goes for their away games, with the Basque side not able to score more than a goal in any of their last five matches on the road.
