Now Girona returns to release a year in Second, at home, and will not have an easy meeting. The Lightning is also a newly descended. Of course, the numbers of the rojiblancos in Vallecas are not excessively bad because they have scored in half of their visits: In eight duels, the balance is four losses, three wins and one draw. Last year, the Girona defeated 0-2 thanks to a double by Cristhian Stuani.First match of the year2019: Levante-Girona (2-2)2018: Valencia-Girona (2-1)2017: Zaragoza-Girona (0-2)2016: Girona-Valladolid (1-0)2015: Llagostera-Girona (1-2)2014: Girona-Ponferradina (1-1) Girona starts 2020 with the hope and the hope that this year will be the return to First. With 2019 already forgotten, the rojiblanco club hopes to meet again the victories (the year ended with two losses before Numancia and Mirandés) and hence Sunday’s duel against Rayo Vallecano is the first of the finals left until the end of the course. Starting the year on the right foot is crucial to regain confidence and dispel doubts. Further, The last time Girona won its first game of the year, it ended up sealing the promotion to Primera. It was in 2017 when, thanks to the goals of Sandaza and Alcaraz, La Romareda assaulted and defeated Zaragoza (0-2).The team of Pep Lluís Martí already works with the aim of adding the three points on Sunday to Rayo and, in a way, with the desire to end the bad fario that has been impossible to take off in the last two years. With the rojiblanco team in Primera, winning the first game has been a battle that could not be won because in 2018 it fell against Valencia (2-1) and last year, 2019, it was released adding a single point against Levante to address (2-2). Of course, these numbers improve when you look at the last releases of the year in Second. And hence the data for Girona optimism: since 2014 that Girona does not lose at the premiere to reap three wins and a draw. The aforementioned triumph against Zaragoza has to add the one of 2016, against Valladolid (1-0) and the one of 2015 against Llagostera outside (1-0). Finally, in 2014, Girona only achieved a draw against Ponferradina (1-1). Of course, the latter had a certain taste for victory because Felipe Sanchón rescued a point in the 89 ‘penalty. In addition, it was a convulsive course because up to three coaches passed through the red and white bench (Ricardo Rodríguez, Javi López and Pablo Machín) and salvation was not sealed until the last day with the victory against Depor (3-1).
