Real Madrid won against their rival FC Barcelona in the recent EL Classico.

A scoring streak of eight games has seen the Catalans score goals against some of the top clubs in the division, including Atletico Madrid, Real Betis, and Real Sociedad.

Meanwhile, Ancelotti’s team has given up in every league game at home this year, and there is a good probability they will give up again against a team that is in excellent scoring form.

Team News

Luka Mordic is set to back for Real Madrid to play against Girona on home.

The return of Luka Modric, Dani Ceballos, and Mariano Diaz for Madrid‘s match against Girona this weekend is likely to provide them a boost.

Due to injury, Federico Valverde and Karim Benzema are still questionable; however, the former is hoped to have a good chance of making a full recovery in time to play.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see Rodrygo play through the middle, with Vinicius Junior to the left and Valverde to the right because the team won’t be taking any chances with Benzema.

As a result of Ancelotti‘s rotations, David Alaba, Dani Carvajal, and Ferland Mendy are also likely to start after being left out of the starting lineup against Leipzig.

As for Girona, Juanpe is still a serious question mark for the match at Bernabeu due to a leg injury, and Borja Garcia and Ibrahima Kebe may miss it due to knee injury.

Majority of the lineup from last time out’s game against Osasuna is set to remain on the field under head coach Michel.

However, if Rodrigo Riquelme replaces Toni Villa, there might be changes across the board. With Valentin Castellanos having twice goals score in the league this season, Manu Vallejo is likely to continue playing beside him in the final third of the field; Attacking Stuani is a possibility, though.

Real Madrid possible starting lineup;

Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy; Modric, Tchouameni, Kroos; Valverde, Rodrygo, Vinicius

Girona possible starting lineup;

Gazzaniga; Couto, D Lopez, Bueno, Hernandez; Herrera, Romeu, A Garcia, Riquelme; Vallejo, Castellanos

Real Madrid vs Girona Prediction

Girona undoubtedly has what it takes to defeat Real Madrid, but we are having a very difficult time backing the visitors to come away with a victory in this match. We anticipate the champions to win easily since Ancelotti’s team can be eager to recover their first loss of the 2022–23 season.

We say: Real Madrid 3-1 Girona
