LaLiga is back at the Wanda Metropolitano as we reach matchday 30. Atleti face Girona on Tuesday at 7.30 p.m. CET in a tough clash against one of the competition’s strongest away sides.
Eusebio’s team have earned 22 points away from home, ten more than the 12 points registered at Montilivi. On the other hand, Atleti have the best home record in the league – 35 points, 83.3% fo all possible points - ahead of Barcelona, who have earned 80% of the points at their stadium.
Therefore, both teams have what it takes to win Tuesday’s clash. It would be the first time one of the sides has beaten the other, as all five encounters between Atleti and Girona have ended in a draw.
Our team earned a 4-0 away win over Alavés in the last game and currently sits second in the LaLiga standings. Girona are in 13th place and are six points above relegation zone, partly thanks to their fantastic away streak. In their last three away matches – all of which were played in Madrid – they won at the Bernabéu (2-1), Vallecas (2-0) and Butarque (2-0).
During these wins, Portu and Stuani scored three goals each. Out of the former’s six league goals, four have been scored away from home. The latter is enjoying an outstanding season and is LaLiga’s third top scorer with 17 goals. The in-form striker will face his fellow countrymen and Uruguay teammates Godín and Giménez in what promises to be a fascinating match-up at the Wanda Metropolitano.
