Girona 2–3 Alavés: Comeback sees Alavés creep out of last place

Girona looked set to claim another home win, but Alavés showed incredible character to come back from 2-0 down at the Montilivi. The comeback came courtesy of some great substitutions by new manager Abelardo Fernández who starts his tenure with a win. As predicted, it was a game with some preventable defensive errors. Both sides were without three defenders each due to injuries or yellow card suspensions. At times, it definitely showed. The first half was rather uneventful, with both sides afraid to put a foot wrong. Around ten minutes…

Barcelona were the firm favourites to take three points at home on Saturday but they were held by Juan Carlos Unzue’s Celta Vigo.

Catalans hoping for an easy win against struggling Alaves

Girona look set to claim another three points at the Montilivi against Alavés on Monday. The Whites and Reds have not lost any of their past five matches in La Liga and have been growing in confidence in recent weeks. Even their loss against Valencia mid-week that saw them fall out of the Copa del Rey should not hamper their success in La Liga. On the other hand, Alavés are last in the table and sacked their manager Gianni De Biasi just four days ago. The Italian only lasted two months….
