Real Madrid host Girona in what should be a fairly manageable game for Solari’s men after a very busy schedule. Los Blancos have visited Barcelona, Atletico de Madrid and Ajax in a two-week span and will be clearly tired, so Solari could decide to make some rotations here.
Barcelona have increased their lead in La Liga to nine points, but Madrid have a game at hand and it’s crucial for them to beat Girona so that they can once again cut their deficit down to just six points.
Players like Mariano, Asensio, Ceballos or Odriozola could possibly start this match just so that Benzema, Vinicius, Kroos and Carvajal get some valuable rest. Los Blancos will be hosting Barcelona in the return leg of the Copa del Rey Semifinals in just 10 days and will need every single starter to have fresh legs and be 100% ready to play what will be a very intense game.
All in all, Madrid are the heavy favorites here and should just take care of business.
