Atletico Madrid vs Girona Prediction
Atletico Madrid form
In their previous three games, Atletico Madrid lost 2-1 against Real Madrid, beat Sevilla 0-2, before losing 2-0 against Club Bruges. In their last six La Liga home matches, Atletico Madrid have two wins, while they've drawn two and lost two. They scored seven and conceded six goals.
Standards are high at a club like Atletico Madrid and as such the season is so far going according to plan.
Girona have been a bit bleak in their last three matches, although it started with a 2-1 win against Real Valladolid. Unable to follow that up, they went down 2-1 against Real Betis, before handing over all three points in a 3-5 defeat against Real Sociedad. In their last six La Liga away matches, Girona failed to win even once. In stead, they've drawn one and lost five, scoring three while also conceding nine times.
Few people had high hopes on behalf of Girona before the season, but current form sees them punching above expectations.
While we don't believe Girona are strong enough to prevent Atletico Madrid from a home win, we believe they are capable of limiting the defeat to only a few goals.
