The culés took the point from Rayo and are advancing little by little towards maintenance (2-2).
Somewhat recovered from a few weeks ago, Rayo Vallecano remains one of the solid teams in this 2022-23 League and the point that Girona FC has taken, this Saturday afternoon, is not to be grumpy. Away from.
But the culés will be able to regret their new defensive errors that forced them to run after the goal on two occasions. A bad habit outdoors.
But, luckily for them, the 24-year-old Ukrainian Viktor Tsygankov closed the winter market against 5 million euros, closing a double that allowed him to enter the history of LaLiga. The former Dinamo kyiv player is the sixth Ukrainian to score in the Spanish league and the first to score a double.
Timidly coming to the Gironin team, Tsygankov is increasingly imposing thanks to his technique and his vision of the game, until now he had distinguished himself by his surgical passes. He added success in front of the goal at Rayo Vallecano.
A pity for social networks
A Madrid that was able to win a penalty at the end of the first half. But after a first shot was repelled by goalkeeper Gazzaniga, he withdrew, a Girona player having entered the area long before the Rayo player’s shot. In the second penalty, the Rayo players tried a combination with a pass from the shooter to a player who was coming from behind. Author of a magical goal at the start of the game, Isaac missed it completely. A brilliant tactic if it succeeds, but pathetic if it fails. This one has not finished circling the web.
Finally, if they had expected to benefit from a penalty late in the game, Girona FC regained a precious point from the Madrid suburbs and was stuck in 12th place, 5 points from relegation and… 7 points from a European qualification. …
Next game on April 1 at home for the other Catalan derby against Espanyol Barcelona.
