Our football match prediction:
Sunday’s football match at Estadio Municipal de Montilivi pits together Girona and Real Madrid, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2017/2018 season. Girona’s main goal is to secure the La Liga survival, whilst Real Madrid are on a quest to defend their trophy. As expected, los Blancos defeated Eibar at their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu at the weekend, but they are still five points behind league leaders Barcelona in the La Liga standings. Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. need to keep on raising their form if they are to win yet another domestic trophy and Zinedine Zidane’s troops will have to be at their sharpest against Girona this weekend if they are to extend their winning run in the national championship to three games. Considering that the Catalan outfit suffered a dip in form, we predict that Real Madrid are going to pick up all three points from Sunday’s clash.
Highlighted Player (Christian Stuani):
Christian Stuani is considered one of the best Uruguay attackers. Stuani was born on 12 October, 1986 and he began his senior career at Danubio. He impressed with the Uruguayan outfit, scoring 23 goals in 36 appearances for the club and, as a result, he became a target for a number of top European clubs. In 2008 he signed a contract with Reggina, but he failed to impress in 17 appearances for the Italian team. After spending the 2012/2013 season on loan at Espanyol, Christian Stuani signed a permanent deal with the Catalan side in 2013. Stuani scored 12 goals in 37 league appearances for Espanyol in the 2014/2015 Primera Division campaign, but at the end of the season he moved to Middlesbrough for a reported €3 million fee. The 186-cm-tall striker made his Uruguay debut on 14 November, 2012 in a friendly win over Poland. Stuani also represented la Celeste at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid are a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 11 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world. Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards. The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
