Girona has been surprising everyone with their strong performance this season in the LaLiga. They are now considered to be genuine contenders for the trophy, thanks to their position at the top of the table.
Real Madrid, who dropped points against Atlético last week, are now just 2 points ahead of Girona, who have 56 points after 23 games. It took some time for people to believe that Girona could stay in the race as the match day counter moved on, but now it’s clear that they are a serious threat to Real Madrid for the title.
It’s worth noting that both teams have only lost a single game all season: Real Madrid’s loss came against Atlético back in September, and Girona’s sole defeat was against Real Madrid, just 6 days after their loss to Atlético. This matchup is truly a potential title decider.
