State of grace

Portu has arrived, has seen and has won. His goal served to confirm the best start of the league in the First Division. With the 1-0 victory against Las Palmas, Michel's team has 10 points after the first four games.

Today's game has confirmed that Girona knows how to resist and also, to suffer, when it is necessary. The white-and-green players have shown that they are a self-confident team, strong in defense, intelligent in the center of the field and resourceful in attack.

Las Palmas did not make things easy for them. The team led by García Pimienta also likes, like Girona, to build from the front. In fact, the possession has been favorable to the visitors and has materialized in a series of dangerous arrivals that have been neutralized by the white-and-green defense and by Gazzaniga, who has had a couple of very meritorious saves to avoid the Canary Islands goal.

Girona also had them and more numerous. Savinho was a real nuisance for the Canaries who could not find a way to stop him. In the thirtieth minute of the first half, the referee disallowed a goal by Stuani, pointing out a previous foul. Tsygankov and Dovbyk also had the goal very close. But it wasn't until the eightieth minute when, from Valery's cross, Portu drove the ball to the back of the net, making Montilivi go into the net and making the final score 1-0.
