Match Report Girona 2 – Real Madrid 1: Shocking defeat in Catalonia


Real Madrid lost in the first visit of the history to Girona (2-1). The local team made a came back in a really poor second half for Los Blancos. FC Barcelona are now 8 points ahead in La Liga and the title gets very, very complicated. Zidane has a lot of work because the team needs to improve in every line.

Zinedine Zidane introduced the best line-up possible with Achraf as a right back. However, the team didn’t work from the beginning. The first chance was for Girona, but Portu missed it after a mistake from Kiko Casilla, never at his best. Luckily, Real Madrid were the first to score thanks to Isco in the minute 12th. Far from improve the performance, Los Blancos didn’t arrive with danger and Gerona could draw in the minute 35th but Portu found the post.

The second half was even worst. In the 53rd minute, Stuani drew the game and the local team improve dramatically. Portu was able to score the second goal in offside in the 58th. In 5 minutes, Zidane’s team was losing a key game. Los Blancos were in shock and Stuani could even score the third one, but he missed it in front of Casilla. Zidane had to change a few things and he introduced Lucas and Asensio in the pitch.

Los Blancos tried hard in the last minute and even Lucas Vázquez scored in the 83rd minute after a great assist from Isco, but he was in offside and this time the referee whistled. Los Blancos tried the last 10 minutes but they weren’t accurate and couldn’t create any chances. We didn’t see Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema. Very bad day for the club in a really poor performance.
