With Real Madrid's disappointing league campaign so far, Santiago Solari must be targeting the Copa del Rey to keep the fans and the board happy with some silverware.

Girona overcame Atletico Madrid in the previous round and they have to make another trip to the Spanish capital in their quest to progress in the Copa del Rey.

Real Madrid didn't look at their best against Leganes in the last round, losing 1-0 in the second leg albeit with a weakened side.

Los Blancos will be looking to break Barcelona's recent monopoly on the competition, with the Spanish champions winning the trophy for the past four years.

The absence of Gareth Bale will hamper Madrid's chances in this game whilst Girona will have to hope Cristhian Stuani's recent links to Barcelona have not gone to his head.

The former Middlesbrough man has been in red-hot form this season, netting 12 goals in 17 appearances in La Liga and they will be hoping that he can carry that form over to the cup and book Girona a place in the semi-final.
