Incredible but true: FC Barcelona lost the Catalan derby against Girona (2-4) on Sunday, and now has seven points less than its evening opponent. Girona FC is a leader who is finally repeating himself.
The Catalan derby is extremely well attended, in person, between the two Barca, reigning Spanish champions, and Girona FC, surprise league leaders. And the result is shattering! The Blaugranas are registered in the public of Montjuic (2-4) to recover from the September lengths of the adversity of the night. The Blanquivermells marched together with two points plus Real Madrid on the 17th day.
Xavi’s formation, dominating, is not as good as it is, but opposing and the Gironese does not allow himself to miss a chance or almost to score. The visitors from the North opened the scoring for Artem Dovbyk (12th), before an equalizer from Robert Lewandowski (19th). But Miguel Gutiérrez, Real Madrid full-back, gave his team the advantage again with a long-range strike (40th).
The second period was a success for FCB, but the goalkeeper was hostile, the excellent Paulo Gazzaniga. Valery Fernandez (approximately erased Jules Koundé, 80th) and Cristhian Stuani (95th) increased the score, but in the added time signed Ilkay Gündogan having barely revived his team (91st). Girona will try to follow up against Alaves last week, when Barça will have to win in Valencia.
