Since then, the victories have always come accompanied by a draw or a defeat. The joys have not been returned to serve twice. And that's what the players want to change against Alavés. The incentive: that since October they did not win away from home (against Huesca, precisely) and last Saturday they broke that bad season in Montilivi. Winning a rival like the Girona reinforces the spirits and forces to follow the path.
