Real Madrid vs Girona | When Real Madrid hosts Girona on Sunday afternoon, the teams will be vying for top position in the La Liga standings.

When Real Madrid resumes domestic play on Sunday afternoon at home against relegation-threatened Girona, they will be aiming to make it five victories in a row in La Liga.

This season, Los Merengues have been in excellent form; they overcame Sevilla 3-1 last weekend to maintain their league-leading position. The two teams are level on points (31), although Carlo Ancelotti’s team does have a game in hand. As a result of their tight 1-0 victory against Valencia on Saturday, championship rivals Barcelona have overcome them.

However, they did drop their opening game of the year, losing 3-2 to RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League midweek despite being without some of their top players. With Federico Valverde and Luka Modric back in the mix, Los Blancos will want to get back on track against a Girona team that is utterly out of form.

Real Madrid vs Girona The Gironistes are currently in 19th position in the La Liga standings and are struggling to adjust to life in the top division of Spain. The Catalan team just drew 1-1 with Osasuna to improve morale, but they are currently on a six-game losing streak (D2, L4) and are massive underdogs in this matchup.

Real Madrid XI (4-3-3):

Courtois; Carvajal; Rudiger; Alaba; Mendy; Camavinga; Kroos; and Modric; Valverde; Rodrygo; and Vinicius Jr.

Gazzaniga; Couto, Bueno, Martinez, Lopez, Gutierrez; Herrera, Romeu, Garcia, Villa, Vallejo; Castellanos make up the Girona XI (5-4-1) for the team.

The next games for Real Madrid

Like many other clubs on the continent, Real Madrid has a full fixture calendar leading up to the World Cup. They have already advanced to the next stage of the Champions League, and if they defeat the Scottish powerhouse Celtic next week then defeat Rayo Vallecano and Cadiz in La Liga before the players depart for the 2022 Qatar World Cup, they may advance as group winners.
