Real Madrid 4/5 to beat Girona in Thursday’s Copa del Rey tie
Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Real Madrid win
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to book their spot in the semi-final of this year’s Copa del Rey, Real Madrid will travel to a struggling Estadi Municipal de Montilivi on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, shipping four against Real Madrid in the first leg, it has been a very worrying start for Girona entering 2019. Now managing to record just five victories in their 21 La Liga matches this season, they now hold just a three-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone. Despite remarkably coming past Atletico Madrid in the round of 32, Eusebio Sacristán’s side have now lost their last three matches on the bounce, conceding two or more goals in each of those defeats, Girona have now failed to pick up a win in their last 10 matches across all competitions.
As for the visitors, despite a sluggish start to the new campaign, it appears that Real Madrid have finally started to find their feet. Coming past Leganes in the last 32, the Whites now hold a seven-point buffer over falling out of the top four in La Liga and the defending Champions League winners have now won their last three matches on the bounce, scoring 10 goals on that run. Now losing just one of their last seven away matches across all competitions, Madrid have also won their last four matches against Girona, scoring 16 goals on that run.
