Ninth wasn't quite the finish Los Che had in mind last term, but it is a new season now and they will very much hope to turn the page and restore their place as European contenders among the pack in La Liga.

In Gennaro Gattuso, the third-ever Italian to helm the club, they have a born winner, with a litany of success from his playing days and a few managerial accolades to boot too - and they'll hope that they can shoot out of the blocks with a win today.

Predicted Valencia starting XI: Mamardashvili; Correia, Diakhaby, Gabriel, Gaya; Musah, Guillamon; Castillejo, Soler, Lino; Duro.

PositionGirona roster
Goalkeepers Carlos
Defenders Espinosa, Gutiérrez, Martínez, López, Juanpe, Couto, Bueno
Midfielders Kebe, Terrats, Sáiz, A. García, Herrera, Martin, B. García, Sala
Forwards Stuani, Castellanos, Fernández, Riquelme

After back-to-back playoff heartbreaks, a remarkable run from sixth last term has brought Girona back to the top-flight of Spanish football, and now they will have their eyes set on bedding in once again.

Now, they face a tough opening encounter - one that could prove an acid test for expectations in Catalonia this term, to discover whether they have the edge to remain where they are.

Predicted Girona starting XI: Martin; Martinez, Bueno, Juanpe; Couto, Herrera, A Garcia, Terrats, Urena; Stuani, Castellanos.
