Our prediction for this Primera Division match:
Monday’s football game between Girona and Atletico Madrid will bring down the curtain on day 25 of the 2022/2023 La Liga campaign. Following back-to-back wins over Almeria and Athletic Club, the Catalans were beaten by Getafe in the suburbs of Madrid at the weekend, and it is no wonder the odds for away win have been dropping. Veteran forward Stuani has lost his place in the starting XI, while all Alexander Callens, Yangel Herrera, and Ibrahima Kebe remain in the recovery room. Yan Couto will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, aim to build on a splendid 6-1 win over Sevilla, and seeing that Girona did not look solid at the back against Getafe, away triumph should be considered. Both Angel Correa and Nahuel Molina are back from suspensions, whereas all Reinildo Mandava, Sergio Reguilon, and Rodrigo De Paul remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Christian Stuani):
Cristhian 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 (Atletico Madrid):
Atletico Madrid are a Spanish team that plays in Primera Division (La Liga). Los Rojiblancos or los Colchoneros play their home matches at Estadio Vicente Calderon, which holds up to 54,960 spectators. Atletico Madrid have won 10 La Liga titles, but they have yet to lift the European Cup (Champions League) trophy.
Los Rojiblancos have won 10 Copa del Rey (Spanish Cup) trophies and it has to be noted that they defeated their bitter local rivals Real Madrid in the 2012/2013 Spanish Cup final. The rivalry between the two capital clubs is pretty big and El Madrileno is regarded as one of the most exciting derbies in the world football.
Atletico Madrid played two Champions League finals under Diego Simeone, but they failed to beat Real Madrid in the title games (2013/2014 and 2015/2016). However, the Argentine tactician helped Atletico Madrid win the La Liga trophy in 2014 and, no doubt, he is one of the most successful coaches in the history of the capital club.
