Real Madrid vs Girona: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch
Real Madrid host Girona in a La Liga encounter on Saturday at Santiago Bernabeu. Although Los Blancos are in an impressive vein of form, they stumbled against RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League. Carlo Ancelotti experimented with his backline using Antonio Rudiger as a left-back and Nacho at the heart of defence and this backfired spectacularly, with the hosts scoring twice in a span of five minutes in the first half. However, they remain unbeaten in La Liga and after the reality check in Germany, the Italian manager is likely to stick to the basics in order to bag the three points on offer.
The Catalan visitors have won just twice in 11 matches and are reeling in 18th place with nine points. However, Girona have history on their side as they beat Los Blancos 2-1 on their last outing at the Bernabeu back in February 2019.

Girona will miss Borja Garcia and Ibrahim Kebe for their trip to the capital, while Juanpe is doubtful.
