The success story of Girona and Daley Blind continues in La Liga. The revelation of the season won 2-4 at Osasuna on Saturday and has been the leader for at least one day.
Only in the final phase did Girona make the difference against middle-ranked Osasuna. Shortly after halftime, Blind’s team even fell behind 1-2. This was due to a goal by Ante Budimir, who was given a little too much freedom by the Oranje international.
The deficit was cleared in the 71st minute by Artem Dovbyk, after which former PSV target Viktor Tsygankov and Aleix García gave the visitors the victory. It meant the tenth league victory of the season in twelve games.
The 33-year-old Blind played as a central defender the entire match. The former Ajax player has been a starter in all matches so far this season, except for the visit to Villarreal. He came on as a substitute two minutes before the end.
Partly thanks to the victory over Osasuna, Girona has at least temporarily taken over the top position from Real Madrid. ‘De Koninklijke’ will play against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday. With a win, Real will be back at the top on the basis of goal difference.
