La Liga sees home team Girona v Real Madrid in the second round of the Spanish top league. Both sides showed little offensively in the first round, and we expect a low goal-scoring game this time as well.
Our Tips and Predictions For This Game:
The home team disappointed their fans in the first round, and now they will give their all to make life tougher for the Madrid side. On the other hand, Real Madrid is having trouble in its attack, so the only reasonable bet on this match is under 3.5 goals, which 888sport values at 1.64, and we will take it with a medium stake.
Girona is playing its second year in a row in La Liga. Last year the team beat Real Madrid 2-1 at home, and again they will give everything they have got this time to avoid defeat. All in all, they are a Catalonian team, and we all know what these kinds of games mean to them. They will have a tough time because their best striker, Carlos Stuani, is injured, so their only real chance to avoid defeat is to play defensively and hope for a 0-0 result.
In the first round, Real Madrid played at home against Getafe and won 2-0. The team is adjusting to life without Cristiano Ronaldo, and simply still can’t figure out how to attack without the Portuguese playmaker. The team dominated against Getafe had 78% ball possession but still managed to achieve only three shots on goal. All their best players are available for this match.
Reasons For and Against The Tip:
✓ Real Madrid is adjusting to life without Cristiano Ronaldo; they still haven’t figured out how to attack without him.
✓ Girona is playing without top striker Carlos Stuani.
✓ The only meeting between the teams last year ended 2-1.
✓ Girona is a Catalonian side and they will give everything they got to avoid a heavy defeat.
✘ Real Madrid is the much stronger team and could win big if the squad’s stars play at their top level.
Tip: Under 3.5 goals
Odds: 1.64 @ 888sport
