Girona’s fairy-tale start to life in La Liga continues with a trip to Athletic Bilbao, who are also unbeaten after two games.

Girona boss Pablo Machin on the importance of his side’s away form: “Just like we’ve shown to be super competitive at home, we also have to be away from home.

“Stuani? He brings us character and experience.”

Athletic boss Jose Angel Ziganda on facing old boy Gorka Iraizoz: “There’s no doubt that it’ll be a special game, he’s had a spectacular career and he should be proud of everything he’s done.

“I always liked reading or listening to what he said about Athletic. We must give him a warm reception because he deserves recognition for everything he’s given us.

“Of course, we’ll then try to score as many goals as possible!”
