Girona vs BarcelonaTOMontilivi welcomes this afternoon the party of discord between the RFEF and LaLiga
SIf everything had gone like Javier Tebas, Barcelona and Girona wanted, we would probably be writing these lines from Miami, but finally things did not go well. The RFEF did not give its permission so that, for the first time in history, a league match was played outside our borders and Montilivi was the stage for the regional derby between Barça and Albirrojos.
The staff of both teams have remained outside the debate at all times and have sent to the dispatches whenever they have been asked about it. It is not out of the question that in the coming years it will return to the charge with the idea of taking the competition out of our country, but for now the idea does not generate enough consensus. In addition, seeing how the cup calendar is, in which both Bara and Girona have level crossings and the need to overcome, a match at 7,500 kilometers would not have been the most convenient for the players.
Quizs Girona does not have the glamor of Miami, but certainly has much more tradition and football fans than the city of Florida. As indicated by the full to the flag that is scheduled for this afternoon in Montilivi, where the poster of "no tickets" for days. Whoever has an entry for today, may feel privileged.
In sports, both teams need a victory that allows them to recover sensations after the respective rogues varas. In the case azulgrana, the rotations of Valverde in the Pizjun came out expensive and received a heavy defeat at the hands of Sevilla. Girona, on the other hand, was expected to fall at the Bernabu, but seeing how the match was played, it could have scraped a little more from Chamartn.
In addition, in the case you have to bear in mind that you are mired in a fight for the title in which the Attico de Madrid does not seem to falter. Yesterday I beat Getafe and it has shortened distances. Add the three points this afternoon it seems necessary for Valverde not start with nerves.
Girona, on the other hand, have won seven consecutive games without winning the league competition. The last time they managed to celebrate after a match was in December, also in a Catalan derby. That time they made Espanyol succumb in the RCDE Stadium. It is already far away.
