Girona boss Pablo Machin has said that his side deserved a point in their 3-3 draw with Celta Vigo at Balaidos on Friday evening.
Heading into the game at Balaidos, visiting side Girona were battered and bruised following their defeat to Barcelona last weekend, whilst Celta were in seemingly buoyant mood, smashing Eibar in their previous outing.
Home side boss Juan Carlos Unzue spoke of the importance regarding a victory on Friday evening before the game, noting that his side had failed to win two successive games this season.
And, he would have been left feeling frustrated after his side were given a real test against Girona.
The home side did take the lead through in-form Pione Sisto, who scored the second game in a row, but they were instantly pegged back as Portu found the back of the net.
And, it would be 2-1 moments later for the Catalan side as Cristhian Stuani scored, before Maxi Gomez would get on the score-sheet to complete a remarkable opening 16 minutes.
The game would the largely be end-to-end and the home fans thought they had won the game when Daniel Wass made it 3-2, however, a late equaliser from Juanpe was enough to share the points.
“We grew and in the end we were able to get a fair point,” said Girona coach Pablo Machin.
“We scored goals but with three it’s a pity we didn’t win. The point is very good for us. We have less points than we deserve, but nobody can say we didn’t compete.”
