An unfortunate defeat

Girona FC gave a good performance in Mestalla stadium against a great Valencia fighting to qualify for the next Champions League. But their luck failed them in the decisive actions of the game (1-2).

Portu gave the lead to the visitors with a well-placed header after a good cross by Mojica from the left side (8'). But the locals sealed the comeback with a Ramalho own goal (27') and a penalty scored by Parejo (48') after a foul comitted by Pablo Maffeo on Gonçalo Guedes.

Girona's line-up was Bono; Ramalho, Bernardo, Juanpe; Maffeo (Aday, 65'), Granell (Borja García, 46'), Pere Pons, Timor, Mojica (Marlos Moreno, 74'); Portu and Stuani.

Girona will close out the first round of the league at Montilivi stadium against Las Palmas this coming Saturday (1 pm).
