Girona vs Real Madrid : All You Need To Know About The La Liga Match
Real Madrid will visit Girona on Sunday for what is bound to be a highly charged encounter two days after the region of Catalonia declared independence.
Speculation has suggested police are assessing the safety risks of allowing the fixture to go ahead after the Catalan government voted to leave Spain on Friday.
With the Spanish government set to impose direct rule in an attempt to prevent the split, the arrival of the capital’s biggest club will inevitably be greeted with hostility.

Team News :
Girona picked up a valuable 2-1 win away to Deportivo in their last league match and could name a similar lineup.
The Catalans have five players on loan from Manchester City and three of them – Pablo Maffeo, Aleix Garcia and Larry Kayode – are likely starters, with Douglas Luiz and Marlos Moreno also in contention.
Real Madrid :
Madrid remain without Dani Carvajal, Mateo Kovacic, Gareth Bale and Keylor Navas, though Bale is closing in on a return.
Kiko Casilla will continue in goal but whether or not Luca Zidane is fit enough after a shoulder injury to retake a place on the bench remains to be seen.
Potential starting XI:
Girona : Bono; Ramalho, Espinosa, Juanpe; Maffeo, Pons, A. Garcia, Benitez; Portu, Kayode, B. Garcia.
