Girona v Real Madrid play for the very first in their history on Sunday (15:15, UK time) in the 11th week of LaLiga. The game will be played at Montilivi with a special atmosphere due to the political situation of Catalonia.
Girona v Real Madrid Preview
Girona is a newly promoted team and they are doing a good season so far, staying away from the bottom three. The Catalan team won their first away game last weekend at La Coruña (1-2) and they have now 9 points. On Thursday, they lost (0-2) at home in the first leg of Copa del Rey against Levante. José Aurelio Suárez is the only absence for Machín.
Real Madrid beat (0-2) Fuenlabrada on Thursday in the Copa del Rey with an unusual line-up. The stars could rest this week after beating Eibar (3-0) at home. Los Blancos have won the last four games in La Liga and they continue chasing Barcelona in the table. Zidane cannot count with Kovacic, Keylor Navas, Carvajal and Gareth Bale, all of them injured.

Girona v Real Madrid Prediction
Los Blancos are not playing great in this stage of the season, but at least they are winning the games easily. They kept a clean sheet in the last two games and we can expect the same at Montilivi because Girona had several problems to score a goal. Hopefully, Cristiano Ronaldo put an end to his bad numbers in La Liga, where he has scored only one goal so far.
These teams have never met before.
