Real Madrid will be hoping to make it six La Liga wins in succession as they host to an out-of-form Girona, who are now without a win in 13 matches across all competitions. The hosts, who are now the division’s in-form side, are unsurprisingly favourites to win this match.

Real Madrid vs. Girona Predictions and Preview
Real Madrid harbour hopes of a La Liga title push having won each of their last five matches in the division and are now back in second place.
Those victories have included wins over Real Betis, Sevilla and Espanyol and most notably of all, a 3-1 win at Atletico Madrid in their last league outing.
Girona are in a shocking rut of form – they are without a win in 13 games in all competitions and have lost each of their last six matches, including their Copa del Rey double header against Madrid.
Eusebio Sacristan’s side are still one spot outside the league’s relegation zone, but their top-flight status appears increasingly precarious.
One to watch for Real Madrid: Vinicius Junior has already netted four goals this season and is likely to start as Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio are once again likely to watch from the bench. The exciting forward is at 13/10 to find the net in this game.
One to watch for Girona: Cristhian Stuani is already on 12 La Liga goals this campaign and scored twice in a 6-3 loss at Madrid last season. He is priced at an attractive 17/5 to score here.
Long shot: Girona have failed to score in three of their last four matches and are without a win in 13, so will look to sit deep in this game. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 28/1.
