Like someone who does not forgive their first coffee in the morning, someone who travels the same path on the way to work for years or someone who works stamping stamps. The adventure of life, of football in this case, it becomes routine when it comes to describing the Espanyol matches against Girona at the RCDE Stadium. No matter the category, including the conditions in which the rojiblancos arrive. It does not even matter that the parakeets reach 83 minutes ahead on the scoreboard. And that is the leader of Second. Girona, like the bank, always wins.
Among the many details that can explain the merit of the visiting victory, one in particular. The more than 400 professional matches accumulated by Embarba and Raúl de Tomás, who seemed to have unbalanced the meeting as usual with another of their associations, in contrast with the 204 minutes in Pablo Moreno’s elite, of 18 years, or the debut in LaLiga de Pachón, ‘pichichi’ of the Girona subsidiary in Third. Among all of them, and to compensate, a Samu Saiz who sealed the victory.
Until Espanyol’s goal, Girona had imposed, despite its plague of casualties (up to nine, plus Skull or Moon on the bench), a matched match suit that was not proving comfortable for Espanyol. Nor would it be in the second half. As soon as the match resumed, Pachón was able to draw but it was night against Diego López just before López Toca decreed that it had been offside. The meeting entered a brief phase of exchange of blows, with a clear header from the recently entered Puado, the umpteenth appearance of the Embarba-De Tomás society prowling the goal and with providential Darder blocking a shot from Cristoforo.
But Espanyol was not able to seal the victory, Y This is how Bárcenas broke in to, in an individual genius, establish the tie. Espanyol stunned, he only needed to be the one of yesteryear in a Cabrera penalty about Santi Bueno, two minutes to go, which turned Samu Saiz. Girona is the first rival to win this season in Cornellà, the first to score two goals at Espanyol. Braking the leader. Red-and-white self-esteem shot.
