The history of Girona is written with Stuani | Soccer | Sports


The modern history of Girona is explained from Stuani. The Uruguayan has been the common thread of the team until its establishment in the League and at 37 years old he does not want to stop being a protagonist in the enthusiastic red and white display to qualify for the next edition of the Champions League. The Uruguayan’s goals are also part of the successful campaign of Míchel’s team. There is practically no decisive match without the Stuani moment. The striker resolved with an instinctive spur shot a match that Girona was unable to close after a very generous effort against a contemplative Betis. Where figures such as the double scorer Dobvyk (16 goals) no longer reached, the substitute Stuani appeared in added time to attack the center and with a double shot make it 3-2 that secures his team in the positions of the so-called Champions zone.

Montilivi exploded with joy for Stuani’s faith and Girona’s perseverance. There is no rival that can resist with the home field factor in its favor, not even Betis, always the winner so far in its visits to the Catalan fiefdom since 2008. The Verdiblancos, who have lost four in a row, were defeated after Rayo also fell and Osasuna in three days presided over by a very grateful rain in Montilivi.

Although their game was discontinuous, the game was almost always Girona’s, strong in the pressure, intense and superior in the midfield, fast in circulation and very generous in defense, a circumstance that Betis took advantage of to score two goals practically out of nowhere. , both finished off by Willian José. Absent Savinho, the unbalancing player was Tsygankov and the striker Dovbyk, denied in the last eight days of the League. The Ukrainian striker, decisive in his team’s qualification for the Euro Cup, like Tsygankov, converted a penalty at the hands of Chady Riad and then completed an assist from Portu when Girona was at its worst.

The white and red effectiveness was in any case much lower than that of Betis because the green and white found themselves tied twice after a couple of poorly defended plays, especially by a player as reliable and decisive as David López usually is. Pellegrini’s boys tiptoed through the match, more spectators than participants, convinced that Girona’s determination to play the ball from area to area would end up facilitating a result that they needed for their aspirations of competing in Europe. Betis, always supported by a good Isco, let themselves go and fell at the feet of Dobvyk and Stuani. The appearance of the Uruguayan inflamed his team and the fans and put Girona on the path to the Champions League. There is no memorable day in Girona without Stuani.
