Girona vs Real Madrid Predictions

Catalan Underdogs vs. Spanish Royals in La Liga’s Pinnacle Battle

Key Stats
– Girona are unbeaten this season, with six victories in their last six matches.
– Real Madrid have found it challenging against Girona recently, failing to secure a win in their last three encounters.
– Both teams have found the net in their last eight face-offs, highlighting the attacking prowess on display.

Girona, currently in their fourth La Liga campaign, are undeniably the surprise package of this season. The Catalan side’s journey to the summit, amassing a stunning 19 points from just seven outings, is nothing short of fairy tale-like. Considering their modest 10th-place finish in the previous term, this current form is a revelation.

They kicked off their campaign with an impressive draw against Real Sociedad, swiftly followed by a six-match winning spree, taming formidable opponents such as Sevilla, Las Palmas, and Villarreal. Although fixtures against Real Sociedad and Villarreal posed tough challenges, the Gironistes sailed through with four points in total.

Real Madrid’s Pursuit of Consistency

While Girona have been grabbing the headlines, Real Madrid are hot on their heels. Carlo Ancelotti’s men, having secured 18 points from seven games, are eyeing the top spot. The Los Blancos’ recent triumph over Las Palmas was a much-needed boost, particularly after their stumble in the Madrid derby against Atletico Madrid. Their season, although dotted with a few bumps, has largely been positive, illustrated by their Champions League 1-0 win against Union Berlin.

However, Real Madrid’s track record against Girona reveals a struggle. Out of six La Liga encounters, they’ve managed only two wins, tasting defeat thrice. This upcoming match is a stern test for them, especially against a team that’s brimming with confidence.

Key Players to Watch

Injury has struck both camps. Girona’s casualty list includes Bernardo Espinosa, Borja Garcia, Joel Roca, Ricard Artero, and Toni Villa. However, in their absence, players like Artem Dovbyk, who’s struck twice in his last two appearances, and Yangel Herrera, netting thrice this season from midfield, are expected to step up.

Real Madrid, on the other hand, might miss the services of David Alaba due to a thigh concern. The potential absence of Eder Militao, Thibaut Courtois, and Arda Guler further adds to their woes. Yet, there’s a silver lining: the anticipated returns of Vinicius Junior and Dani Carvajal could provide the necessary spark.

Crunching the Numbers

Girona’s attacking zeal is evident: an average of 2.6 goals per game. A diversified goal-scoring approach has benefited them; their shots inside the box statistics (16/59) reveal a team not afraid to get into dangerous areas. Their ball possession stands at 53.3%, reflecting a balanced approach.

Real Madrid, always a powerhouse in Spanish football, maintain a slightly superior ball possession of 59%. Their shooting prowess is evident with an average of 19 shots per game. Defensively, they’ve been relatively secure, conceding under a goal per game.


1. Match Outcome: Both Teams to Score Justification: Recent meetings between these two sides indicate that both teams have a knack for finding the back of the net when they clash. Specifically, in their last eight encounters, both teams have managed to score. This paints a picture of two attacking teams that can both exploit and be vulnerable to defensive weaknesses. Additionally, Girona’s blistering form in front of goal, coupled with Real Madrid’s potent strike force, further supports the idea that both teams are likely to register at least a goal in this high-profile fixture.

2. Correct Score: 2-2 Draw Justification: Both teams have showcased strong attacking capabilities this season. Girona have averaged 2.6 goals per match, while Real Madrid has a respectable average of 1.9 goals per game. However, considering Girona’s form and their performance against top teams like Real Sociedad and Villarreal, they’re expected to give Los Blancos a run for their money. Conversely, Real Madrid’s potent attack means they are always likely to score. Thus, a 2-2 draw represents a balanced outcome based on current form and previous encounters.

3. Goalscorer: Artem Dovbyk Justification: Artem Dovbyk has recently showcased his goalscoring prowess for Girona, finding the net twice in his last two appearances. His form suggests he’s in a confident mood, and against a Real Madrid defence that will be without David Alaba, there might be opportunities for the forward to exploit. Furthermore, given that Girona have been the joint-top scorers in La Liga, Dovbyk is well-placed to continue his rich vein of form and register on the scoresheet.

4. Corner Prediction: Real Madrid to Win the Corner Battle, Total Corners Over 10.5 Justification: When it comes to attacking verve, Real Madrid’s stats stand out. With an average of 19 shots per game, they’ve shown a tendency to put defences under consistent pressure. This often results in corners, where they average 6.9 per game. Girona, on the other hand, averages 4.3 corners a game. Based on these statistics, Real Madrid are likely to edge Girona in terms of corners won. Considering the attacking nature of both teams and the high stakes of the game, the total number of corners in the match exceeding 10.5 is a plausible scenario.
