It has been a memorable opening to the new La Liga season for Girona, and they will have the opportunity to move clear at the top of the standings on Saturday when they come up against Real Madrid.
La Liga Preview
Very few could have predicted that Girona would sit top of the La Liga standings after seven rounds of fixtures this term. The Spanish side is one of just two sides that are still sporting unbeaten records, but Girona sit a point clear at the top of the standings after winning six of their opening seven matches this term.
There isn’t a lot wrong with their recent form, as they come into this fixture after winning each of their last five in La Liga. Meanwhile, no side has scored more goals than Girona in the Spanish top flight over the opening months of the season. Confidence is likely to be high within the camp, as they produced a stunning comeback in their most recent fixture against Villarreal. Goals from Artem Dovbyk and Eric Garcia in five second half minutes gave Girona a 2-1 advantage on the road.
Real Madrid remain the clear favourites to win the La Liga title this season, but they currently sit second in the standings. However, a victory this weekend would take them back to the top of the standings. Real have the second-best defensive record in the competition at present, as they have allowed just six goals.
The Spanish giants bounced back from defeat against Atletico Madrid in midweek, as they claimed a straightforward 2-0 home win against Las Palmas. Brahim Diaz opened the scoring on the stroke of half time, before Joselu added the second early after the interval.Bet here
