    Girona achieves a hard-fought draw with Osasuna and comes out of relegation provisionally

Girona was forced to beat Osasuna to put an end to the bad feelings of the last few days. He has not succeeded, but a draw is better than nothing. The de Míchel were able to react to the goal of Kike Barja in the first half when David López established equality before the break (1-1) to give a point that allowed the Girona team to go out provisionally from descent. Of course, they are pending tomorrow's game of Getafe in Vigo against Celta. And they continue without leaving a clean sheet since the start of the game. the season. Despite the fact that today there has been a significant change to the team with the debut of Argentine goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

The urgent need to win has led Míchel to < strong>revolutionize the eleven with six changes.The main novelty has been in goal, with the change of Juan Carlos. But there have also been other positions, with Couto, David López, Javi Hernández, Manu Vallejo and Toni Villa for Arnau, Bernardo, Miguel, Riquelme and Stuani. Girona, however, was hesitant in the first half.

Possession for Osasuna

Despite the fact that the rojiblanco team has enjoyed dangerous arrivals, such as one from Yangel Herrera that ended with a timid header from the midfielder on loan from City at the hands of goalkeeper Herrera, it was Osasuna who he has taken possession to annoy the people of Girona. Rubén Peña pardoned with a shot from the edge of the box that hit the left post. Nacho Vidal has also done it with a header over the crossbar after receiving an assist from Moi Gómez. Kike Barja has not failed since.The Navarrese winger, who came on for the injured Abde in the 7th minute, was in charge of aggravating Girona's injury with a goal after beating Couto. Montilivi has stayed dumb suddenly. But less than ten minutes later he would celebrate the tie thanks to David López's target in a strategic action (min. 46).

Girona knew they had to push harder to break the dynamic of results. so He started the second half wanting to bite. Yangel Herrera and Toni Villa have seen how their shots went over the crossbar. Nor has Moncayola had any luck, frustrated by the great intervention of Gazzaniga to deflect a shot loaded with bad intention to a corner. David López did not reach the auction either, after a great individual play by Riquelme. Osasuna pressed as the final stretch approached, but Girona this time was vigilant in defense to save the furniture, despite the obvious nerves. Stuani even had a one-on-one in added time with the goalkeeper that he didn't take advantage of to break the tie.
