The great dynamics of results and the good feelings with which Girona arrived at Ipurua were suddenly diluted last night. Míchel’s men collided with a superior Eibar who showed them that, to aspire to be among the best, they still have a long way to go. The Basques, solid and with individualities that make a difference, asserted their quality and took advantage of the errors of a Girona little recognizable to take the three points.

And this, it seemed that Girona was holding the initial exchange of blows when Stuani, from a penalty, equaled Javi Muñoz’s opening goal. Before the half part, Stoichkov with a goal from outside the area signed a 2-1 that, just to start the restart, Sergio Alvarez expanded into a strategy action.
The good goal of Nahuel Bustos put minimal emotion to a match that, between the expulsion of Juncà and Tejero’s fourth goal was liquidated. With the defeat, the Girona team miss out on the opportunity to get into promotion play-off positions.
