Girona is chasing the 300th victory in the Second Division

GIRONAThe big victory of the weekend will be that Montilivi will be filled again, for the first time since the appearance of the damn pandemic, in the visit of Huesca to the stadium (4 pm, Movistar LaLiga). But the team needs the points to recover emotionally from the defeats of recent weeks, which have sent it to relegation places. And if they can be all three, much better. In case of victory, in addition, the club would be able to arrive at the 300 triumphs in regular league in Second throughout its history, in which it has participated in 24 seasons and 751 parties.

Girona, founded in 1930, won its first match in the category in 1934, against Zaragoza in the old field of Vista Alegre (2-1). It was the second day and the victory was possible thanks to a double by Serra, who scored the last goal in stoppage time. The team, led by the legendary Zabala, was played by figures such as Fèlix Farró, Manel Trias and Domènec Balmanya. The 50th victory came in 1949, also in Vista Alegre and against Real Sociedad (4-1). The goals came from Masós, Medina, Arcadi Camps – the top scorer in the club’s history – and Cánovas. The centenary of success was made to wait until 1958, again in Girona, with Deportivo (2-1) and actions of Danés and Pujolràs.

So many years divided into Second B and Third caused Girona not to add the 150 victory until the modern era, in 2011. A 2-0 against Granada, already in Montilivi and with goals from Peragón and Siqueira in own goal, they gave way to an era of happiness that culminated in promotion to Primera in 2017, the only one the club has experienced. But before that the 200th and 250th victories in the second category of state football were celebrated. Rivals, Racing in 2014 (1-0, goal by Felipe Sanchón, with Pablo Machín on the bench) and in 2017, the year of promotion, in Zaragoza (0-2, with goals from Fran Sandaza and Rubén Alcaraz).

Against Huesca, Míchel hopes to react and, in return, for Girona to add new data for the ephemeris collection. “We need our people, we have to be together if we want to overcome this delicate moment. The three points are essential this weekend. It is now, when everything falters, that there can be no break between us. And no one will be able to reproach us. nothing about attitude, enthusiasm and motivation. We have to change things, because I will be the first to make a mistake if I continue down the same path seeing that it does not work. If we have detected the problem, we must now remedy it. ” The Madrid coach has the injuries of Lozano and Juncà and the doubts of Terrats and Stuani, with discomfort in the neck.
