LA LEAGUE. 37-year-old Stuani helps Girona regain its leading position with a strong comeback

Girona has once again taken the lead in the top flight of Spanish football. Girona won 2-1 against Valencia in its own stadium. After 80 minutes, the home team still faced a 1-0 deficit. But veteran Christian Stuani helped his club to the top position in La Liga. The Catalan club now has 38 points with its twelfth win of the season. Real Madrid have 35 and will play Granada later on Saturday.

Shortly after halftime, Girona captain Aleix García (ex-Mouscron) was close to the opening goal, but Valencia goalkeeper Giorgi Mamardashvili made a good save. The goal came not much later on the other side. David López was surprised by a fellow player and had to chase Hugo Duro, who put the lead for Valencia on the board with a clever marker.

For a long time it seemed like Valencia was going to win at seasonal revelation Girona. It took until the 81st minute for the home team to equalize. Uruguayan Cristhian Stuani (37), who had recently come on, scored from close range on a pass from another substitute, Brazilian Yan Couto. Seven minutes later that scenario repeated itself. Once again Couto crossed and 37-year-old Stuani was the man who shot the ball in. This is how Stuani turned out to be a true super sub and helped his club (for the time being) to the top position in La Liga.
