Drawing their first leg match up, Atletico Madrid are eager to finally get a victory against Girona as both teams set to battle again this midweek.
Atletico Still Curious in Beating Girona
The draw that Diego Simeone’s men pick up on the first match up means that Atletico once again failed to defeat Eusebio Sacristan’s men.
Collecting five draws from their all of their previous meetings, the match on Wednesday, January 16, could be the moment where a victory arrives for Los Rojiblancos.
Playing in front of their home crowd, Simeone will be hoping that his side can put on an excellent display so they can get that needed victory.
Diego Costa is still likely out due to injury, so Antoine Griezmann will once again be expected to snatch goals for Atletico.
Girona Also Gunning for Cope del Rey Glory Over Atleti
Being able to hold Simeone’s men in all of their previous encounter, Gironistes are not lacking any confidence in their chance of eliminating the home team.
Sacristan will be hoping that his team can continue to play with strong beliefs and confidence, despite playing at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
Another draw result in 90 minutes is very possible knowing both teams’ match up history, so extra time or even penalties could decide this tie.
