Real Madrid vs Girona
Spanish La Liga
Date: Sunday, 17 February 2019
Kick-Off at 11:00 UK / 12:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (Madrid).
Real Madrid continued to shine on Wednesday evening when they saw off Ajax 1-2 in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 round tie in Amsterdam.
Los Blancos thus made it seven wins and a draw in last eight matches in all competitions. It seems that Santiago Solari managed to find the winning formula and turn a corner in the whole season for Real Madrid who generally struggled badly for consistency earlier on.
Karim Benzema was one of the main catalysts for such rise in form. He bagged seven goals in last seven matches in all competitions for Real Madrid.
The Frenchman has 10 La Liga goals to his name and he will no doubts be the main target in the final third on Sunday morning when Madrid play host to Catalan side Girona at Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid vs Girona: Head-to-head
Real Madrid won four and lost one of five meetings with Blanquivermell.
Los Blancos were just brutal netting ten goals in two home outings against Girona.
The Over 2.5 Goals FT & Both Teams To Score option landed in all of five head to head ties between these two likes.
These two likes played each other just recently in Copa de Rey quarter-final when Real Madrid claimed two impressive wins netting seven goals in the process.
Real Madrid vs Girona: Prediction
Girona will come into this in completely opposite form. They lost six on the trot in all competitions shipping two or more goals in each of fixtures in the process. They slipped down to 17th place in Primera Division standings after four consecutive league defeats and a streak of ten successive matches without a single victory.
To make things worse, Eusebio Sacristian’s men lost their previous fixture to the likes of rock-bottomed Huesca 0-2 on the home patch. We thus can’t imagine a scenario in which the visitors would avoid a comprehensive defeat by three or more goals difference here.
