Atleti trail Barcelona by five points in La Liga but the cup could be Diego Simeone’s route to a trophy this season.Under Simeone the club have been fantastic in cup competitions, reaching two Champions League finals whilst winning the Europa League and the Copa del Rey.Girona have been one of the surprise packages of the Liga season with their star striker Cristhian Stuani outperforming everyone’s expectations in hitting 11 goals in 16 games this season.Since Girona were promoted to La Liga two seasons ago they have faced Atletico three times, with all three encounters ending in draws, so don’t expect this to be a one-sided match.Girona are currently going through their worst run of the season as they are winless in their last four games, however, their home record remains as strong as ever going unbeaten at Estadi Montilivi for the past five games.
