In this article, we will give you the best fantasy combinations, probable lineups, team news, key stats and grand league tips for the La Liga match between Girona v Atletico Madrid
Girona v Atletico Madrid
Estadi Montilivi, Girona, Catalonia, Spain
14th March, 01:30 a.m.
The rojiblancos are hoping to get their first victory at the Montilivi Stadium by taking on a tough Catalan foe in the Laliga Santander action tonight.
Real Sociedad’s and Real Betis’ draws in Mallorca and Villarreal respectively give Atletico the opportunity to pull ahead of San Sebastian by three points and the Verdiblancos by six points in the race for third place. Even though they have only played two league games, they must add the three points at Montilivi to do this, a venue where they have yet to win. Memphis will once again be in charge of the rojiblanco assault thanks to his two goals against Sevilla the previous day.
They will encounter a rival who will demand them, though. Girona has added 21 of the 30 points it has in its stadium’s box and has only conceded one defeat, a 1-0 loss to Barcelona at Montilivi. In the first round at the Metropolitano, he also nearly tied the game with a superb performance. In this crucial part of the season, Atlético’s health will be put to the test.
