Real Madrid tasted a shocking defeat vs the newly promoted side Girona. Barcelona now sits comfortably at the top with 8 point lead over the defending LaLiga champions. The defeat was quite disgraceful as Girona the home side proved to be way better than Real Madrid.
Although Real Madrid took the lead in the first half with a beautiful counter-attacking play from Madrid followed by a goal from Isco netting in a deflected shot from Ronaldo. Their lead soon ended in the second half after a beautifully constructed play from Girona led to a Christian Stuani goal. Girona took the lead after 4 minutes with Pablo Maffeo taking a shot converted by Portu with a backheel. Real Madrid enjoyed more than 60% possession with more shots on target but Girona outplayed them. Girona could have scored more with their style of play only if the crossbars would have converted their strikes into goals.
With Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema wasting too many chances in front of the goal, Real Madrid is now in a really uncomfortable position sitting 3rd on the table with 8 point gap to Barcelona. Madridistas hope their team narrows the gap in the upcoming match vs Las Palmas with Barcelona playing a tough opponent Sevilla.
