Atletico Madrid hosts Girona
Atletico Madrid hosts Girona in a second game from the 1/8-finals of the Spanish Copa de Rey. This match is going to be played at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid on Wednesday night. Here are our predictions football 1×2.
Atletico Madrid have a slight advantage after the first leg, thanks to the 1-1 draw in Catalonia. Antoine Griezmann opened the score for Los Rojiblancos after just 9 minutes of playing, but Antony Lozano kept Girona’s chances with an equalizing goal 10 minutes before the halftime break. Of course, Atletico remains a very strong favourite for reaching the next phase of the competition, but Girona are a team which usually offers some fight.
In La Liga Atletico are currently 2nd in the standings, being only behind the leader Barcelona. At this moment Diego Simeone’s team have a record of 10 wins, 8 draws and just one loss. In their last five games in the league Los Rojiblancos are almost perfect – four wins and one draw.
In their last game Atletico enjoyed a 1-0 win over Levante at home. Guess who scored the winner at the Wanda Metropolitano? Antoine Griezmann, of course. The French international scored a penalty kick, putting the ball behind Oier’s back.
Meanwhile Girona are 9th in La Liga’s standings, which is a pretty positive performance for them. So far the Catalans have a record of 5 wins, 9 draws and 5 defeats in the league. But here’s the moment to remind you that Girona are without a win in their last five games in La Liga – three draws and two losses. They made a 1-1 draw at home against Deportivo Alaves in their last match.
These are our predictions football 1×2 for the Copa del Rey fixture between Atletico Madrid and Girona. Good luck!
