Girona playing well this season at Copa del Rey and already kicked off Atletico Madrid from one of the biggest tournaments in Spain. The team plays beautiful attacking football, but the defense problem prevents the team from achieving victories as often as they would like.

This season the team has a clear leader and the best player – Cristian Stuani, he alone can achieve a lot and decide the outcome of the match, what he has already done before and scored already 12 goals.
