Girona this year above the middle of the La Liga table, they have some interesting players which playing very great football. Christian Stuani third top scorer in the league. Unfortunately, Seydou Doumbia has an injury, great player with lots of different experience. Girona has better away match statistic than at home. Catalonians started the season very well but later lowered the level of the game.
Last year Girona was kicked by Levante at 1/16 Round of Copa del Rey.
Atletico Madrid had a difficult game a few days ago against Sevilla – the third place of La Liga. That match was very important for saving their places in the table. Atletico has a great season and all chances to fight with Barcelona, especially when Real Madrid showing that kind of game and form without Ronaldo. In all Spanish games, this season Simeone’s team have lost only once against Celta Vigo in away match. Los Indios have a great choice of players that they can rotate for different priority of matches. This year Madrid team is very defensive and playing on counter-attacks.
Last year at Copa del Rey Atletico lost to Sevilla at quarter-final. This year when they have a chance to fight for La Liga champions title and in Champions League they need to hold priority to this championships and give a rest to main players.
