A historic first round

Girona go into the halfway point of the season with the best points tally in their 93-year history and having led the Primera Division for five rounds

At Montilivi this year we are enjoying a team that has no limits and that keeps breaking records. Míchel Sánchez's men have closed the first half of the season this week, making it the best in the club's 93-year history. 48 points in nineteen matches that have also helped them to compete for the first position with Real Madrid and to finish up to five matchdays as sole leaders. Right now they are level with Los Blancos, seven ahead of Barça and ten behind Atlético de Madrid.

The pace of scoring during this first stretch of the competition has been crazy, with an average of 2.52 points per game. Los Rojiblancos have won fifteen, drawn three and lost just one. In addition, the team has also become the top scorer in the entire Primera División with 46 goals scored, and up to thirteen players have found the back of the net. Dovbyk has eleven and is the top scorer, while Stuani and Savio follow with six and five respectively. Second line players such as Yangel, Iván Martín, Aleix and Tsygankov have also played a key role in front of goal.

The fans are responding to the leader, and Montilivi has the best occupancy rate in the whole of the First Division (95.1%). Translated into real numbers, this means that on average the stadium has an attendance of 12,640 spectators per game. Overall, these figures reflect the great season we are having and allow us to dream ahead of the second half of the season, which kicks off this Sunday.
