Real Madrid have won their last four consecutive home matches in LaLiga, scoring 19 goals in the process at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Zinedine Zidane’s men were beaten 2-1 at Montilivi by Girona last year, with Pablo Machin’s men certainly capable of translating their style and system into a competitive unit on the road too. Girona have won four of their last five league games heading into this weekend, keeping clean sheets in every single victory. They present a big banana skin for Real Madrid to try and avoid.
