After having a 2-1 win over EIBAR and a week of refreshment, the Madrid club is back into their job. Real Madrid are now Third in the table, already having a big gap with the leaders Barca, they should take all the three points if so, the league is still in contention.
Ramos and Bale’s fitness is still a concern, after skipping a training schedule, and they should’ve recovered by now. It means Zidane would have the best lineup in-hand when they kickoff and since the next match has a 5-day gap, almost the best XI is expected to be in-field.
Though this is quite promising, Real Madrid lost their previous meeting against this Catalan club, with a slight margin 2-1. And naturally, they would be aiming an act of revenge.
Girona is performing extraordinary in their first-ever laliga campaign, although losing 6-1 away to Barca recently, they are placed 7th in the table, and there are chances for Champions league qualification-which is an almost impossible task for a newly promoted club.
Ronaldo’s performance is absolutely beautiful, and we know that when he is at his best, Real Madrid are going to do something big.Ronaldo leads the attack with 13 goals in his last 7 matches and scoring in 9 out of his last 10 occasions.Ronaldo is 6 goals short of Messi in the league and he’d be hoping to reduce the gap as much as possible!
Ultimately, Real Madrid is playing Girona with various factors favouring them. And they usually perform well in front of their home crowd.With awesome attackers and magnificent midfielders, Real Madrid is expected to display a classic performance which would be surely doped with some experimental tactics from Zidane.
