Tip Reasoning

This Sunday’s game in La Liga is a repeat of the Copa del Rey Quarter-Final tie between Real Madrid and Girona. Los Blancos won that convincingly in the end but they were made to sweat in the 1st Leg with the score level at 2-2 at the Bernabeu heading into the final fifteen minutes. Since then though, Real have only got better while the Catalans have been in freefall so a home win is strongly expected here.

Los Blancos made it 7 wins out of 8 in all competitions in Amsterdam on Wednesday night. It was actually one of their worst performances since the turn of the year but they still got the job done, as is invariably the case in the Champions League. A fourth straight European crown remains a possibility but they won’t be ruling out a league title push now either following an impressive Madrid derby win last weekend which cut the gap to Barcelona to 6 points.

Girona meanwhile are only focused on one thing and that’s staying in the Primera Division. They head into this game following 6 straight defeats in all competitions and they are winless in 13. Not since late November have they won in La Liga and that’s something that is very hard to see changing here. The Catalans are now just a point and a place above the drop-zone and the reality of a relegation battle is starting to dawn on them.

Real Madrid have a week off following this one so they’ve no real incentive to rest players but they do have genuine competition for places now with the likes of Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez hoping to dislodge either Gareth Bale or Vinicius from the midweek eleven. We may also see Marcelo return to add more attacking options at left-back and they should have far too much class for Girona.

Santi Solari’s men have been scoring plenty of late. They became the first ever visiting team to score 3 goals at the Wanda Metropolitano in La Liga last week and have netted 3 or more in 5 of their last 7 games in all competitions. That includes both legs of their Copa del Rey tie with Girona. Eusebio’s men have gone 16 without a clean sheet heading into this and overall backing Real Madrid to score over 2.5 Goals appeals.

Going for Real Madrid & Both Teams to Score also could be worth a flutter. Girona have played 8 matches against Spain’s ‘big three’ this season having been paired with both Madrid clubs in the cup. Both teams scored in 7 of those matches so they are a team that has the tools to cause the stronger sides problems and 8 of their last 11 games against all opponents have also seen goals at each end.
