RM vs GIR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Girona will look for the home comfort as they aim to erase a two-goal deficit in the Copa del Rey 2nd leg quarterfinal match against Real Madrid, at Montilivi, on Thursday night (IST).
With no win in the last 10 games in all competitions, Girona’s season has somewhat hit a roadblock in the last few months. The confidence within the squad is at its lowest and now they face a herculean task of overcoming a two-goal first leg deficit to advance into the semi-final of Copa del Rey.
The Blanquivermells have won just five league game this season, accumulating 24 points from 21 games. But that’s not a full story as three of those wins came in a five-game period.
And that means, in the other 17 matches, they have won just two games. Now there is a belief that if their current streak stretches to next few weeks, Girona could find themselves fighting to save their stuttering season.
While Real Madrid seemed to have turned the corners around. Though eternal rivals Barcelona are still 10 points clear of them in the La Lga table, the results in the last few games indicate towards the silver linings.
