Atletico Madrid vs Girona Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Atletico Madrid were able to manage a fourth straight win of 2018 after beating Eibar 1-0 at the Ipurua. Kevin Gameiro scored the only goal of the game in the 27th minute, although there were other opportunities for Diego Simeone’s team. In the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, Atletico lost 2-1 against Sevilla. Girona were able to manage their biggest league victory after thrashing Las Palmas 6-0 at the Municipal de Montilivi. Christian Stuani’s penalty was the only goal in the first half, but the floodgates were opened in the second half when Michael Olunga (3), Borja Garcia, and Portu scored for the hosts.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Diego Costa has been in outstanding form since making the return to Atletico. He has scored in three out of his four appearances in all competitions – including the opening goal against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey. Costa is expected to lead the line after returning from suspension. I would choose Diego Costa to score anytime.

Girona will be without Christian Stuani for the game, as the club’s top scorer is likely to miss the game due to a concussion. This puts Girona at a serious disadvantage, as the forward has contributed more than one third of their league goals. Atletico kept three consecutive clean sheets at the Wanda Metropolitano before the run was broken by Sevilla in the midweek action. I would opt for Atletico to keep a clean sheet.

Diego Costa to score anytime – 10/11 

Atletico Madrid clean sheet – 4/5

Atletico Madrid saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Atletico Madrid have conceeded only 3 goals in their last 2 games against Girona

Girona have conceeded only 3 goals in their last 2 games against Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid Preview

It is easy to see that Atletico Madrid have been lifted by the presence of Diego Costa, who has made an instant impact at the club since making the €66 million return to Spain. Costa has the club fired up once again and he is back available for this game. Atletico have had a decent run of form over the last few matches, but they have been unable to pull away from third-placed Valencia. Yet, a substantial 10-point advantage over neighbours Real Madrid is enough to put Atletico on cloud nine. Antoine Griezmann and Angel Correa are the leading scorers at Atletico Madrid with five goals each.

Atletico Madrid Team News

Atletico will be without Diego Godin due to suspension, while Nicolas Gaitan also misses out due to physical discomfort.

Girona Preview

Girona are yet to see substantial arrivals in this January transfer window, but manager Pablo Machin will see little reason to strengthen their squad on the basis of form shown in the first half of the campaign. Girona have been able to get most of these positive results at home and this situation is unlikely to change in the rest of the campaign. It is remarkable that Girona are only a couple of points behind the Europa League qualification places – despite being promoted to the La Liga for the first time. Christian Stuani has been a major factor behind Girona’s positive form, and he is the club’s leading scorer with 10 goals.

Girona Team News

Christian Stuani (concussion), Pedro Alcala (ankle), Marc Muniesa (ankle), and José Aurelio Suarez (shoulder) are the names unavailable for Girona manager Pablo Machin.
