Real Madrid vs Girona: Match Preview and Prediction
Real Madrid vs Girona: At Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday afternoon, Real Madrid and Girona, the top two teams in La Liga, square off in a classic six-point match. This season, Real Madrid has won nine of its eleven home league games and drawn two.
In eight of the previous nine head-to-head matches between these rivals, there have been goals on both sides.
Both teams have scored in four of Real Madrid’s last six capital league games. Both teams will enter Matchday No. 24 after goalless draws. These results put Los Blancos two points ahead of Girona in the league. Barcelona is third, eight points behind.
A six-match winning streak ended six days ago when Real Madrid succumbed to Atletico Madrid in a last-second equaliser. Brahim Diaz gave Los Blancos an early lead, but Carlo Ancelotti’s team couldn’t expand it. After scoring, they didn’t challenge Atleti, and Marcos Llorente’s late equaliser punished them.
Girona couldn’t score against Real Sociedad at home last Saturday. Girona lost against the Basques’ resolute defense. The Catalans were missing league scoring leader Artem Dovbyk. A knee injury will prevent the Ukrainian attacker from visiting the capital.
Real Madrid vs Girona: Betting Analysis
Real Madrid was the team that Girona lost to in La Liga this season, and it was the only loss they have suffered. In the rematch that took place in September of the following year, Los Blancos defeated the Catalans by a score of 3-0.
It’s interesting to note that Girona has faced Real Madrid three times in a row without losing. For the Catalan team, the run includes two victories and a draw. In the nine prior meetings between the two clubs, all but one were on target.
The two best attacking lines in the nation will square off in this encounter. Given that these two teams have scored goals in eight of their past nine head-to-head meetings, it is reasonable to anticipate goals. In four of Real Madrid’s last six league games played at home, both teams have scored.
Four of Girona’s last six league road games faced the same issue. We still think Real Madrid will win on Saturday. They have won nine and drawn two of their eleven La Liga games at home this season. The best option is home win and both teams to score at 2.62.
Artem Dovbyk of Girona and Jude Bellingham of Real Madrid lead La Liga in goals. They each have 14 goals this season. Jude Bellingham will replace Dovbyk at the Bernabeu on Saturday. Real Madrid’s attacking midfielder is also on penalty duty. We expect a high-scoring game, so Bellingham scoring at any time at 2.10 makes sense.
