            Date: 10/02/24

            Kick-off time: 17:30

            Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

            This weekend’s fixture is a massive one in the race for the La Liga title. Real Madrid, who currently sit top can extend their lead at the top to five points, whilst Girona, who are just behind them, can overtake them by one.

            Los Blancos were winners of six in a row in the league before their recent draw with Atletico, but are looking to dent Girona’s fairytale season. The visitors also dropped points in their last outing, but they have still lost just once all season, just like Madrid, which highlights the incredible level they have been playing at during this campaign.

            A win for Girona would mean that they have beaten all three of Barcelona, Atletico and Real. They won 4-2 against Barca at the Camp Nou, before they edged Atletico 4-3 at the beginning of the calendar year.

            If the visitors manage to win the La Liga trophy, not only would it be their first league title, it would also be the first major honour in the club’s history. They were only promoted to the top division in 2022.

            In their last five meetings, Girona have won two and lost two, with the other game ending in a draw. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended in the favour of Real Madrid, inflicting their opponent’s only defeat of the season so far with a 3-0 victory. Joselu, Aurelien Tchouameni and Jude Bellingham were all on the scoresheet. Girona, a 10th-place team last season, beat the Madrid giants 4-2 in April after racing into a two-goal lead early on. Vinicius Jr pulled one back but the hosts added another pair to complete the win.

            Team News

            Real Madrid

            David Alaba and Thibaut Courtois are out for the season with ACL injuries, whilst Eder Militao is out until late March at least. Aurelien Tchouameni returns from suspension but Vinicius Jr missed the game against Atletico. This means his availability is in doubt.

            Girona

            Girona have been dealt a huge blow with top scorer Artem Dovbyk suffering a serious knee injury which could sideline him for the rest of the season. David Lopez has a muscle injury that will see him return later this month.

            Form Guide

            Real Madrid

            In the last five games, Real Madrid have won three, lost one and drawn one. Los Blancos have faced their city rivals Atletico Madrid twice in this stretch, the most recent coming this past weekend. This game ended in a draw, after Marcos Llorente’s 93rd minute equaliser cancelled out Brahim Diaz’s early opener.

            The first meeting between the Madrid sides came in the round of 16 of the Copa Del Rey. It was Atletico who came out on top, winning 4-2 after extra time.

            Following their cup defeat, they returned to league action, with two late victories. Firstly, against Almeria, in which they edged their opponents 3-2 after an incredible 99th-minute winner from Dani Carvajal. They were 2-0 down at half-time, but managed to claw it back to 2-2 by the 67th minute thanks to goals from Bellingham and Vinicius Jr. Their next game had the same ending, though they did not leave it as late. Away at Las Palmas, they fell a goal behind before Vinicius scored an equaliser. Aurelien Tchouameni bagged the winner with six minutes of play remaining.

            A Joselu brace gave them a 2-0 win at Getafe to restore their place at the top of the table, before they drew against Atletico.

            Girona

            In their last five games, Girona have won three, drawn one and lost one. The most recent result was a 0-0 draw at home to Real Sociedad, as they missed an opportunity to return to the top of the table over Real Madrid.

            They faced relegation battling Celta Vigo in the game before, and they secured all three points thanks to a Portu winner in the 20th minute. Whilst they have enjoyed plenty of success in the league, their journey in the Copa Del Rey was ended at the quarter-final stage by lowly Mallorca in a 3-2 defeat. They had got to that stage of the competition with a 3-1 win over Rayo Vallecano in the round of 16.

            Between these two ties, they crushed Sevilla 5-1 at home. Though they fell behind to an early goal by Isaac Romero, a six-minute hat-trick from Artem Dovbk quickly put them in a commanding lead. Further goals from Viktor Tsyhankov and Cristhian Stuani added to the scoreline.

            Footy Accumulators Prediction

            This will be a close, hard-fought affair, with both sides confident of getting a result. Real have not lost a league game since September, and we do not expect them to be defeated this weekend. Girona will put up a good fight, but ultimately the home advantage may be too much to overcome – Real Madrid 3-2 Girona
