Eusebio eyes Madrid repeat

Eusebio Sacristan feels Girona have what it takes to repeat last season’s 2-1 win against Real Madrid.

Girona host Madrid on Sunday, almost 10 months to the day they sprung a shock on the then-champions, and Eusebio was in a confident mood ahead of the match.

“We want to repeat the sensations and results of last season,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“I see it as a good opportunity to get my first win against Madrid, although it’s a statistic that doesn’t worry me too much.

“We know that preseasons for teams with many players at a World Cup are somewhat strange, but we must have a lot of respect for Madrid because of their recent history and because they’ll come here hoping to do things well.

“For us to have a chance, we must make the most of our quality, stick together and remain as united as we have been in recent seasons.

“I don’t see Madrid weaker without Cristiano Ronaldo. Others will take responsibility.”
