Atlético de Madrid vs Girona – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This is a risky prediction, it’s certain, but I think it has a solid basis to occur.
This Girona side is very capable offensively, like their records prove, having scored in all of their last 8 consecutive away matches, with the fact that Atlético should hand over the initiative to the visitors even enhancing their chances.
