Girona welcomes Real Madrid
Girona welcomes Real Madrid in a second 1/4-final from the Spanish Copa del Rey. Let’s take a look at this fixture in the Catalan capital in our vip soccer bets for today.
Last week these two teams made a spectacular game at the Santiago Bernabeu. We saw 6 goals in total and a 4-2 win for Real Madrid. Surely this gives Los Blancos a solid advantage, but these two away goals also give Girona chances to progress in the competition.
Girona opened the score at the Bernabeu with an early goal from Antony Lozano. Los Blancos reacted well and turned it around with goals from Lucas Vasquez and Sergio Ramos from a penalty kick. In the 66th minute we saw an equalising goal for Girona, because Alex Granell found the net from a penalty kick. Real Madrid gave their final response between 77th and 80th minutes, when Sergio Ramos again and Karim Benzema made it 4-2 for the home side.
Girona are a dangerous team, so Real Madrid shall be very concentrated in order to eliminate them and reach the 1/2-finals, despite of having an advantage of two goals. The Catalan team possess some solid strikeforce in attack, especially when it comes to the qualities of the Uruguayan striker Christian Stuani. They have their chances and they will chase the win here.
In La Liga Real Madrid are 3rd in the standings with 39 points, being 10 points behind the leader Barcelona. Right now Los Blancos are in a run of three consecutive wins, achieved over Real Betis, Sevilla and Espanyol.
Meanwhile Girona are 14th in the standings with 24 points. They are without a win in their last five games. During the weekend they suffered a defeat against Barca at home.
