Copa del Rey, Quarterfinal, 1st Leg

Where: Santiago Bernabéu
RM vs GIR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Real Madrid will be looking to erase a 1-0 deficit from the first leg when they meet Girona in the semifinal of the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge, in London, on Thursday night (IST).
The Los Blancos are making up for the lost ground. The title race may not be fully over, but it’s fair to say that the 10-point gap is huge at this stage and Barcelona are too good a side to throw away that kind of advantage in the next 18 games or so.
Having said that, the season is still long and a lot can change in the remained of the season. But for that, Real Madrid have to be super consistent and hope Barca struggle massively. Still, this is just an assumption.
The best way to move forward is to win matches, which Madrid did at the weekend as they faced Sevilla in the 3rd place shootout at the Santiago Bernabeu. The Los Blancos won the match 2-0, a deserved winner on the back off how the match played out over the course of 90 minutes.
Now Santiago Solari and his men turn their attention to Copa del Rey, a competition which they have won a record 19 times. But it’s Barcelona all the way in recent years, as Lionel Messi and Co. have lifted the last four, while Madrid’s last came in 2014.
Madrid are heavy favorites in this tie against Girona and with Atletico Madrid already out of the competition, while Barca set to face Sevilla in another encounter, it’s fair to say that Madrid will be favorites if Ernesto Valverde’s men fail to overcome against their formidable opponent.
