Girona secures a dramatic late victory over Valencia to rise to the top of LaLiga

Posted : 03 December 2023

In a thrilling LaLiga encounter on Saturday, Girona orchestrated a remarkable late resurgence, clinching a 2-1 victory over Valencia that injected newfound vigor into their surprising title pursuit.


The stakes were high as the Catalan underdogs, trailing to Hugo Duro's 56th-minute goal, faced the imminent threat of their second defeat of the season with less than 10 minutes on the clock.


However, Girona, displaying resilience and determination, dismantled Valencia's defenses, propelling themselves provisionally three points clear at the league's summit.


The Montilivi stadium witnessed a dramatic turn of events as veteran striker Cristhian Stuani rose to the occasion, leveling the score in the 82nd minute. The decisive moment arrived when Cristhian Mosquera inadvertently redirected a Yan Couto cross into his own net with a mere two minutes remaining.


The crowd erupted in jubilation, celebrating the stunning late goals that breathed life into Girona's LaLiga aspirations.


Despite facing adversity earlier in the match, Girona showcased their offensive prowess, with towering striker Artem Dovbyk missing a prime opportunity in the first minute.


The resilience of goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili, who parried Dovbyk's strike, played a pivotal role in keeping Girona's hopes alive.


The setback of losing Yangel Herrera to injury was mitigated by the introduction of Pablo Torre, on loan from Barcelona, as Girona surged forward in pursuit of victory.


Ruben Bareja's well-organized Valencia side had successfully stifled Girona's typically prolific attack, limiting them to sporadic half-chances. Dovbyk, in particular, squandered another notable opportunity before halftime.


Despite their defensive efforts, Valencia's resistance eventually crumbled in the face of relentless pressure. Girona playmaker Aleix Garcia was denied by Mamardashvili in the 54th minute, but the ensuing momentum shift saw Duro capitalize on a midfield interception, elegantly chipping the ball past Paulo Gazzaniga to put Valencia on the scoreboard.
