Girona vs Atletico Madrid
Spain – Copa del Rey
Date: Wednesday, 9th January 2019
Kick-off at 18.30 UK/ 19.30 CET
Venue: Estadio Municipal de Montilivi (Girona).
Atleti lost a foot in their title race with Barcelona as they drew against Sevilla in their last league match. Cholo Simeone will be fuming that he could not take advantage of the many slips of the Blaugrana.
Girona, lovingly called the reserve team of Manchester City, has more than enough cavalry to leave their statement in Spanish Football. They have done what they can till this point, but it’s high time that they convert their performances to silverware.
Los Colchoneros have glorious hopes for this season, spearheaded by World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann, who by his own words, deserved the Ballon d’Or. Along with his strike partner Diego Costa, the Rojiblancos have got themselves one of the most potent duos in world football.

Girona vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Gironistes have always known how to tame the mighty Atleti. 100% of their h2h matches have ended in draws. The Rojiblancos may be terrorizing the whole league, but the next match-day too, Girona will find a way to fight on equal footing.
The home advantage that Eusebio’s men have will play a major role in determining the outcome of the game. It’s the first leg, and therefore both sides will try to play it safe. The Colchoneros would love an away goal, and the prime objective of the hosts would be to deny it at any cost.
So, that’s how I reckon the game will go. The team from Madrid will keep on trying to score, and Girona will give all they have to keep the score 0-0. The home team would look for counters, but the defensive superpower Atletico Madrid will know how to deal with that.
Expect a goalless draw.
