Real Madrid just published their starting lineup for the upcoming —16:15 CET— away match against Girona.

Real Madrid starting XI: Casilla, Achraf, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Isco, Ronaldo, Benzema.

Girona starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Bono, Bernardo, Ramalho, Pere Pons, Portu, Aday, Juanpe, Kayode, Aleix, Borja Garcia, Maffeo.

It will be extremely important for Real Madrid to control the tempo of the game if they want to dominate and keep Girona under control. It’s time for Real Madrid’s midfielders to improve their performances and finally prove their quality by keeping possession for most of the game.

The home team will surely try to make it a crazy game by counterattacking often to exploit Madrid’s weaknesses in the defensive transition. Girona’s set pieces will also be very important as reserve goalkeeper Kiko Casilla will be between the sticks and he might nopt have the confidence to command his defensive line all that properly.
