GIRONACelta, Betis and Osasuna. These are the three teams left for Girona, who will fight to the end to enter Europe, despite the bucket of cold water that Gerard Moreno’s goal in stoppage time has meant in Girona’s defeat against Villa -real in Montilivi (1-2). The hope to hear the Conference anthem in the stadium is not lost, but the club is hard.

A party with European aspirations like this entails, for the people of Girona, a higher demand than what they are used to. But in this dream season, in which it has been amply demonstrated that everything is possible, Montilivi does not reject the possibility of being among the best. In fact, in an act of priceless positive stubbornness, there isn’t a day of the week when I’m not thinking about the weekend: who he’ll be up against, the XI he’ll field, how many points he’ll need or who they’re playing against direct rivals Own names such as Villarreal itself, Betis and Athletic Club, to name three. Historical clubs.

But if the demand increases, this means that you cannot afford certain mistakes that, a priori, can be overlooked against less powerful teams. And the fact that the First Division, by itself, penalizes distractions quite a bit. Santi Bueno, who throughout the championship, in line with the collective, has had a performance above expectations, has made a serious mistake just starting. The Uruguayan, in an easy ball in the middle of the field, wanted to touch it back towards Gazzaniga so that the goalkeeper could build a new move. As Míchel asks, in Girona the ball is not raffled. But Bueno, who had a lot on top of Jackson, didn’t calculate well if it wasn’t better to kick and send the ball into the stands, to avoid problems, and missed it. The Villarreal forward anticipated, seeing the hundredths of doubt shown by Bueno, started a counterattack and gave way to Yeremy Pino, who with the goal empty only had to push the ball to him. And if the game didn’t start well, it ended worse: with the overturned Girona looking for victory, Pepe Reina started a counterattack matured by Jackson and finished by Gerard Moreno. Two mistakes have punished the red-and-whites too much.

Michel Fa de Guardiola

The Catalans, orphans of Oriol Romeu, last summer’s big signing and possibly one of the best in the club’s history, took a few minutes to take the first blow. They wanted to take control of Setién’s team, which is difficult, but since they couldn’t do it through possession, they chose the path of depth, looking for the rivals’ backs. The role of Yan Couto on the right side has helped, and the interior role assumed by Arnau in offensive tasks, in this invention of Míchel, very much in the Guardiola style, of turning the laterals into interiors.

So much insistence has given Girona the provisional award, which has many layers. If things don’t go right, try left; if the static attack does not provide solutions, he tries it with a more direct game, and if, despite everything, it continues to not work, the strategy will always remain: a free served by Riquelme has allowed Arnau to assist David López, who has equalized pleasure The game was starting again.

Beyond Pino – who was pardoned the expulsion after sending a pilot to the stands with a yellow card – and the ais and uis that have caused the leaked assists of Terrats and Baena, who were cheered on their return to Montilivi, the Villarreal has also not shown signs of firmly believing in being able to compete for a place in the Champions League reserved for Real Sociedad. Because with the draw, Girona had the best minutes. Always growing, the Catalan team, who lacked venom, had a goal disallowed for offside to Tsygankov and suffered a colossal kick in the 94th minute. Let no one forget that in front of them was a a team with a potential against which Girona, once again, did not feel intimidated. To put it in context, because we are talking about the European options of a newly promoted team that ended up being cheered. The season deserves it.
