Daley Blind regained the lead in La Liga with Girona on Saturday. The revelation of the season won 2-1 against mid-table Valencia with a late escape.
Girona fell behind in the 57th minute, when Hugo Duro finished off a Valencia counter. The visitors’ lead was deserved at that moment: Valencia had then created the best chances of the match.
Within a period of ten minutes, Girona completely turned the game around in the final phase. 37-year-old Cristhian Stuani was the big man behind the comeback. He made it 1-1 in the 83rd minute and gave the home team the lead four minutes later.
The victory makes Girona the leader in La Liga for at least a few hours. Real Madrid can dethrone Girona again on Saturday evening if ‘De Koninklijke’ beats Granada at home. That game starts at 6:30 PM.
Girona is currently having a fairytale season in Spain. The club, which played at the second level more than a year ago, has only lost one match so far. On Monday, Girona suffered a loss of points for the third time this season. Athletic Club kept the revelation at 1-1.
