After the dissappointing results against Betis and Alaves in the dying minutes, Girona recouped their form in Cornellà-El Prat stadium. Machin's team completed an outstanding performance and managed a superb victory over Espanyol (0-1).
The visitors were bettter and controlled the game from the starting whistle. In the last action of the first half, after a corner kick, Timor took advantage of a loose ball inside the home team's area to score the opener. Nothing changed after the break and Girona secured three important points.
Girona have 20 points and share a comfortable seventh place with Getafe and Leganes in the league table. Interestingly, Getafe will be Girona's next rival this coming Sunday at Montilivi (12:00).
