Girona welcome Atletico Madrid to Estadi Municipal de Montilivi on Wednesday night in the quest to keep their title hopes alive.
The hosts are tied with Real Madrid on 45 points and lie in second place on the league standings, while Diego Simeone’s men lie in third place with 38 points, tied with champions Barcelona, who are fourth on the table.
Michel’s side had a stellar first half of the season and will hope to go all the way in La Liga this campaign.
Moreover, Girona were held at Benito Vallamarin by Real Betis in their final match in 2023 yet remain unbeaten in their last six matches ahead of this clash.
Diego Simeone’s team however will be confident of grabbing all three points off Michel’s side, knowing they are unbeaten in their last five matches against Girona.
The hosts could welcome Viktor Tysgankov following a two-game injury absence, while Mario Hermoso missed the final game of 2023 through suspension, but he is expected to return to action for Atlètico Madrid in this clash.
The match comes off at 8:30 pm.
