Girona attacked Seville and three from Europe


Girona’s new victory of merit against the best Sevilla of the season and the best rival in the last ten days. Míchel’s men prevailed with two goals and sealed a new clean sheet against a depleted and luckless Andalusian team.

There is not a single free seat. Sevilla ticket offices closed early knowing it was an important game for both teams, who met in the last game of matchday 32 with 41 points. In their assignment, the goals look towards Europe and see how far they can climb the table.

With Arnau essentially missing due to the accumulation of yellow cards, Míchel opted to revert to a defense of five, with Miguel and Couto manning the lines. It was one of the most demanding matches due to the circumstances for the Vallecano coach and it was noticeable by Sevilla’s pressing that penetrated from the first whistle. Ocampos, Bryan Gil and En-Nesyri were the first to start the pressure at the start of the Girona game.

The intensity gave way to an action that was strongly protested by the local fans. Ocampos’ pressure ended in a stomp from Juanpe that was not penalized, neither by the referee nor by VAR.

Girona are clear on how to launch the first corner. Rodrigo Riquelme he wanted to throw it where no one could reach for, at the far post, he was waiting Juanpe. The captain took the mark from Acuña and it was not with the head, but with an acrobatic shot, opening the can of the Catalans.

The goal gave the visitors a breath of fresh air. He began to control the first half with a more consistent release of the ball, although he was more clumsy when it came to finding the three arrows connected to the rojiblanco attack. Despite this, it was not enough to stop Sevilla’s danger, especially on the left wing with Bryan and Acuña. The winger has two of the clearest for those from Mendilibar. Gazzaniga took it upon himself to do the same.

The men from Girona went into the break knowing the importance of stopping opposing offenses and the pressure of one of the most traveled stadiums in the League. The main goal is to stop the strongest team in the last ten home games.

Nothing more said and done. The line of five at the back and the defensive sacrifice of the team resulted in diminishing the intentions of the Andalusian team. As the Basque coaches became desperate, Girona began to exploit counterattacks with speed. Riquelme is back at the level he loved so much at Montilivi and is always a danger on the left side. From his boot came a powerful shot over Dmitrovic’s crossbar. The rebound ended up at the feet of Miguel, who gave up to Tsygankov and the Ukrainian for Taty. The Argentine doubled the lead on the scoreboard, sweetly.

Sevilla just had to react compulsorily. Mendilibar sacrificed a midfielder to bring on Rafa Mir and strengthen the attack while Míchel strengthened the defense. In the last 20 minutes of the match, the Sevilla team shamelessly turned to attack to reverse the situation in any way. The lack of effectiveness, however, made his fans desperate, who disagreed with some of Muñiz Ruiz’s decisions, the result of tension and a very unfavorable result.

Then Girona had to delay the lines. The rival began to reduce meters and they were the most difficult minutes for the Catalans who, despite the suffering, found themselves lucky with some rebounds that favored the interests of the Argentine goalkeeper. Sánchez-Pizjuán was also unlucky in that regard.

With no time for more, Girona came back to add a victory of merit, chaining three wins in four games and starting to look seriously at Europe. Sevilla, lacking self-confidence, missed a good chance to continue an impressive streak.
