### Check if a curve is a geodesic

Suppose you have a curve gamma on a riemannian manifold (M,g). Can you check if gamma is a geodesic?

I tried

nabla =g.connection()
nabla(gamma.nabla.tangent_vector_fields())


But it seems to be impossible to compute covariant derivatives of vectors field along curves. Is there any way to do this?
