Girona's unexpected surge: LaLiga underdogs threaten Real Madrid's dominance

Posted : 09 February 2024

When Real Madrid secured a decisive 3-0 victory over Girona at Estadi Montilivi in September, it appeared to quash the Catalan team's ambitious LaLiga title dreams. Fast forward over four months, and Girona, initially considered relegation candidates, stands just two points behind Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid after an impressive unbeaten run of 15 league games, winning 11. The upcoming match at the Bernabeu Stadium presents an opportunity for Girona to leapfrog Real Madrid and claim the top spot in LaLiga.


Despite the remarkable ascent, Girona manager Michel remains cautious about discussing title aspirations, emphasizing the dominance of traditional powerhouses like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid.


The last club outside of this trio to clinch the top spot was Valencia 20 years ago. However, Girona's challenge to the football elite offers a refreshing storyline for neutrals, bringing an element of unpredictability to the LaLiga race.


Operatively part of the City Football Group alongside European champions Manchester City, Girona operates in a different financial realm. Nevertheless, Michel has crafted a youthful and attractive squad, showcasing an attacking style of play that has caught the eye. As they prepare to face Real Madrid, Girona's unexpected surge challenges the established order in Spanish football, injecting excitement and a new narrative into the league.
