Never two without three but this time it’s the right one! After failing against Elche (2019) and against Rayo Vallecano (2020) in the final of the La Liga playoffs, Girona has this time managed to win its ticket to climb back into the elite of Spanish football. A week after the goalless draw at home to Tenerife, the Blanquivermells won 3-1 on Sunday night to return to La Liga.
After Stuani opened the scoring from the penalty spot before the break (42nd, 0-1), Ruiz equalized for the locals in the second half (59th, 1-1). But behind, an own goal from Leon (68th, 1-2) and an achievement from Martinez (80th, 1-3) allowed Girona to clinch this precious success synonymous with a comeback! After two failures, the club from northeastern Spain will therefore be able to release the champagne!
