Real Madrid are set to play Girona in 2018/19 Copa del Rey Quarter-Final second leg as the tournament moves ahead. Real Madrid go into this game as the favourites.
Kick-off : 9:30 PM (Local)
Venue : Estadi Montilivi, Girona
Real Madrid recorded a great win over Girona in the first leg of the Copa del Rey. But will need to carry on playing good football as they march into the semi’s.
Los Blancos won 4-2 with goals from Lucas Vazquez, Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema. Real Madrid know that Girona gave them a tough fight and in process got two important away goals.
So they will need to defend well and maybe get themselves an away goal. Girona are a good side and Real Madrid are aware of it.
On the other hand, Girona themselves will be disappointed by their performance in the first leg by virtue of which they need to have a solid performance in the second leg.
Girona clearly understand that Real Madrid’s a world class side and they will not commit much mistakes. So they will need to be at their best hoping for luck to be by their side.
Real Madrid have a good record against Girona and they will look to continue the good work.
Team news and possible line-ups
Lozano and Douglas Luiz are both available for Girona for the Real Madrid game and will likely play.
As for Los Blancos, Gareth Bale and Dani Ceballos are both available and should play.
Girona XI : Bounou, Alcala, Espinosa, Juanpe, Porro, A. Garcia, Pons, Granell, Fernandez, Stuani, Portu.

I expect Real Madrid to get the job done and win progressing to semi’s. They might win 2-0.
