What can we say about Girona? They are the biggest sensation of the season in La Liga. The Catalans are second in the league and have the same amount of points as the first Real Madrid. Nobody expected such a thing from them, but now Girona are shocking all football fans around the world.
The team’s record speaks for itself – just one loss in 18 matches played in the league. Michel’s team is 7 points ahead of their next opponent Atletico Madrid. Right now Girona are a team that is hard to beat and everyone can see that.
Atletico’s defense will worry about Girona’s Ukrainian striker Artem Dovbyk who has scored 11 goals in La Liga this season. His compatriot Viktor Tsygankov is another player who can cause a lot of problems on the flank. These two players are making Girona a very dangerous team.
Atletico Madrid will try to catch up with Girona. Cholo Simeone’s team is aware how tough this game is going to be, but Los Colchoneros are not afraid of anyone.
In the previous round Atleti had to finish the game with 10 men, but enjoyed an important 1-0 win against Sevilla at the Wanda Metropolitano. Marcos Llorente scored the only goal in the match. Things got harder when the Turkish center-back Caglar Soyuncu got sent off in the 70th minute. He stayed just four minutes on the pitch before being sent off.
Most likely Marcos Llorente will start against Girona. The Spanish international made a great appearance against Sevilla so we expect to see him in the line-up.
