The Girona beat Sporting 1-0 in Montilivi on Monday thanks to a so much from Juanpe in the first half and takes a giant step towards his aspirations to play the promotion playoff.
Francisco did not want to give up anything. Girona came out brave and for everything from the beginning. Sporting, which proved to be a very hard-working team, quite the opposite. David gallego he was aware of where he could do damage and placed two quick and skillful wingers to attack the spaces left by the lanes. However, little of all this. The Asturians, little daring and waiting for some local error, did not intimidate a lot to the Catalans.
From less to more, Girona had patience to erode the defense of visitors. I was running the half hour of play when Stuani had the clearest so far. Gumbau he threw a measured center to the heart of the area and the Uruguayan, on the fly, finished off when he had everything in his favor. It was precisely from a set piece that the first goal of the match arrived. In the absence of a minute to rest Juanpe, powerful inside the area, picked up a rebound and finished off with all his strength to the bottom of the net.
Galician moved pieces. I was obliged. Pedro Diaz entered and released Manu Garcia that began to receive between the lines and to generate some more danger. The little step forward that Sporting took allowed Girona to find some space behind. The match was equalized.
The second half was up to the task and Sporting had the tie up to two times. The firsta went to Babin but he narrowly left. The second was the clearest of the duel. A corner kick in favor of the locals became one for one for Aitor García, what, with everything in favor decided to sting the ball over Juan Carlos and only the crossbar could prevent the equalizer.
