Competition: Copa del Rey
Market: Gareth Bale to score anytime
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Picking up a 4-2 win when the two sides met last week, Real Madrid will look to confirm their spot in the semi-final of this year’s Copa del Rey when they travel to the Estadi Municipal de Montilivi on Thursday night.
Starting with Eusebio Sacristán, now holding just a three-point buffer over the relegation zone in La Liga and enduring a very worrying run of form entering 2019, the pressure is really on the former Barcelona coach. Now losing their last three matches and still looking for their first win of the New Year, it will be their recent defensive issues concerning fans around the Estadi Municipal de Montilivi. Girona have now conceded two or more goals in their last four matches on the bounce and haven’t recorded a clean sheet in any of their last 13 appearances.
As for the visitors, putting four past Espanyol last week and now enjoying a three-match winning run, Real Madrid appears to be showing some signs of life. Putting four past Girona when the two sides met last week, Santiago Solari is once again likely to name a starting XI glittering with talents. Finding the net against Espanyol last week and expected to lead the line after recovering from his latest injury set back, Gareth Bale will be looking to extend his recent tally on Thursday. The former Spurs man has also now scored three goals in his last three matches against Girona.
