La Liga: Girona’s Late Comeback Against Valencia Push Them Top

Girona’s stunning late comeback against Valencia on Saturday has catapulted them to the top in La Liga league.

Gatekeepers News reports that Hugo Duro’s 56th-minute strike broke down Girona’s walls to move to record the opener of the game for Valencia.

The leveller and the winning goal were netted by Cristhian Stuani at 82nd and 88th minutes, all courtesy of Yan Couto crosses at Girona’s tiny Montilivi stadium went wild.

Stuani told DAZN, “I’m very happy for the team, for the fight that we had with the scoreline against us.

“The team did not let themselves surrender — (Valencia) set up very well.

“We did not stop trying, we locked them in their box and in the end the goals arrived.”

Girona thought they had a third goal in stoppage time when Savinho blasted home, but it was ruled out for offside against Cristian Portu.

Girona keep finding ways to pull surprises despite being in their fourth season in the top flight in their history.

Duro told DAZN, “Girona move you around, they play with you, they are a magnificent team and there’s a reason why they are first.

“It hurts because you leave with no points and you did a good job — today we didn’t deserve to lose.

“The team worked so hard, some of us can’t even breathe, I’m finding it hard to speak.”
