Meanwhile, Villarreal secured a 3-2 win over Sevilla FC at home on 11 May and it was their second win in their last three matches in La Liga.
The Yellow Submarine lost to Celta Vigo in their last away match in the league and the defeat ended their six-match unbeaten run on the road.
Team News
Girona players Borja García, Cristhian Stuani, Jhon Solís and Ricard Artero are out injured, and Arnau Martínez is suspended.
Meanwhile, Alberto Moreno, Alfonso Pedraza, Gerard Moreno, Juan Foyth, Denis Suárez and Yeremy Pino are all on Villarreal's injury list, but the club has no suspension issues. 
“Football is defined by how good you are in the penalty area and Sevilla were very accurate," Villarreal manager Marcelino García Toral said after his side's win over Sevilla.
"Winning helps a lot, but if we had lost, we would have been happy with the attitude. But it’s true that after several games at La Cerámica, where the team couldn’t win, and doing it the way we did, in the end, the victory tastes better.
“It’s very difficult because there are nine points left to play for another 12 points. Before we started this game there were three opponents in front of us, they are regular and we weren’t until now, we have to keep winning and continue with the same mentality.”
Girona claimed a 2-1 win over Villarreal in their last meeting in La Liga with the game being played at the Estadi de la Ceràmica on 27 September 2023.
Therefore, the White and Reds snapped their three-match winless run in the elite league against the Yellow Submarine who had recorded three successive wins.
