1X2 soccer predictions for Real Madrid vs Girona
Real Madrid faces Girona in a match of the 1/4-finals of the Copa del Rey. The meeting will be played on Thursday night, January 24, at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium as the hosts are the big favorite for the victory.
This week is the time for the first matches of the 1/4-finals of the King’s Cup in Spain. Real Madrid can be pleased with the draw after facing a weaker team in Girona. However, the visitors entered the match with increased confidence after eliminating Atletico Madrid on the 1/8-finals. The hero for the team turned striker Seydou Doumbia, who scored 3:3 to Wanda Metropolitano in the 88th minute and with a total score of 4:4 Girona qualifies in the next phase.
Real Madrid won this tournament 19 times but failed to take the 2014 trophy, with their big rival Barcelona dominating this race in recent years. Real Madrid can actually boast only two trophies in the Copa del Rey since 1993, but this season this race appears to be their best chance for a trophy. Los Blancos qualified for the 1/8-finals in the Champions League, but it is hard to imagine that the Madrid players will win the fourth consecutive title, given their performance this season and the tentative results in all races. Santiago Solari’s graduates have achieved a major 2:0 home win over Sevilla in the third place in La Liga and are now in a better mood.
On Thursday, Real Madrid and Girona will face the fourth time against each other. The guests won the first game between the two teams in 2017 with 2:1, but then lost 3:6 and 1:4. Now, for the first time, the two teams will score strength in the Copa del Rey as I think Real Madrid will take an advance before the rematch to Estadi Montilivi in a week.
