History has repeated itself. After a 2-2 scoreboard at Montilivi in the season debut, Girona and Atletico played a tied match again in the first game of the second round at Wanda Metropolitano (1-1).
Griezmann gave the lead to the locals in the first half (34'), taking advantage of a good assist from his front partner, Diego Costa.
After the break, Girona reacted well and they were more offensive. And Portu got the equalizer at 73'. In the injury time, Olunga could have scored the winning goal, but he was knocked down by local goalkeeper Oblak outside the area.
Pablo Machin line up was Bono (Gorka Iraizoz, 46'); Ramalho, Bernardo, Juanpe; Aday, Pere Pons, Granell (Timor, 84'), Mojica; Borja García, Portu and Olunga.
Girona's next game will be away again and will face them against Málaga at La Rosaleda on Saturday 27 (6.30 pm).
