Atletico Madrid will be looking to extend their winning run in La Liga on Monday evening when they travel to Girona. However, the hosts have been in solid form recently, and they will be chasing a fourth win in six matches.
La Liga Preview
For a while, it looked as though Atletico Madrid would be struggling to finish in a Champions League spot this term. However, they have pulled together excellently since the resumption following the World Cup, and Atletico now sits third overall, and are just seven points off Real Madrid, who remain second. However, they will likely need to keep up this pace, as Real Betis and Villarreal are closing in on the top four places.
Atletico’s recent from has been very strong, as they have picked up three wins from their last four matches. Their only blip over that period was a 1-1 draw against Real Madrid. However, they got back to winning ways in stunning fashion last weekend with a 6-1 home win over Sevilla. In the big win, Alvaro Morata and Memphis Depay both scored twice, while Yannick Carrasco and Antoine Griezmann also found the net.
Girona will likely be very happy with their La Liga campaign to this point, as they sit eleventh in the standings after 24 rounds of fixtures. They sit five clear of the relegation places, and could move up to tenth with success on Monday evening, depending on other results across the weekend.
Girona has picked up three wins from their last five matches, but they will need to return to form after losing their previous match against Getafe last weekend. In that match, they conceded three inside the opening 43 minutes, meaning a quicker start will be needed on Monday.
Girona vs Atletico Madrid Head to Head
Atletico Madrid has picked up back-to-back wins in the previous two matches between these sides. However, both of the previous matches between the sides in La Liga in Girona have ended in draws, with the latest of those coming in December 2018.
Girona vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Girona’s performances have been relatively solid throughout this season, and I struggle to see them getting dragged into the relegation scrap. However, it looks hard to take on Atletico on Monday evening, as we could see the Spanish giants recording a straightforward win on the road to remain third.
