Atl. Madrid vs Girona Prediction & Betting tips
In their own Wanda Metropolitano, Atletico Madrid hopes to secure its place in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday evening at the expense of Girona. However, the Madrid players still have to work hard, because in the first game of last week they did not get any further than a 1-1 draw.
Atletico Madrid had something to celebrate last weekend, as the 1-0 victory over Levante meant the 250th victory for Diego Simeone as coach of Atletico Madrid. With that, the Argentinian may call itself the second-most successful coach of Los Colchoneros, because only Luis Aragones managed to lead the red-wits to more victories (308).
Upcoming Wednesday, Simeone hopes to celebrate victory number 251, when his Atletico Madrid receives a visit from Girona. However, that club is a true angler for the people of Madrid, because since the promotion of Girona all four of the mutual encounters ended in a tie. Also last week Atletico Madrid did not pass Girona. Antoine Griezmann, who took the last six goals from Madrid, quickly helped his team ahead, but even before tea, Girona came alongside via Antony Lozano. In the return, too, the hope is mainly established, particularly because Atletico Madrid has to miss quite a few strongholders both in the front and in the back.
Underdog Girona obviously has nothing to lose on Wednesday evening. The Catalans are in the left row halfway through the season and are therefore on course for life retention. The cup tournament is in the eyes of trainer Eusebio especially a nice extra, but with a bit of luck is also the shortest route to Europe, just to conjure up an old-fashioned football cliché.
The secret weapon of Girona listens to the name of Cristhian Stuani. The 32-year-old Uruguayan scores no less than twelve league goals this season and is according to Marca in the attention of big brother FC Barcelona, which in him sees the ideal pinch hitter behind Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi. In the first game of last week, Stuani was spared, but it is expected that he will be back in the return on Wednesday-evening. Playing along is of course crucial for the cup chances of the red-white.
