They will play the final against Osasuna, with the first leg in Pamplona (Wednesday) and the 2nd leg in Montilivi
Girona overcame their 1-2 loss in the first leg against Córdoba with a 3-1 win in Montilivi that put them in the playoffs final for promotion in First division. The Catalan team will play for the promotion in a last two-legged match against Osasuna, with the first leg in Pamplona on Wednesday and the second leg in Montilivi on Sunday.
Great emotion in Montilivi during the second leg of the playoffs semi-final for promotion in La Liga, in which Girona found resources out of nowhere to beat the Andalucians that were upfront thanks to a goal from Xisco in the second half. Pablo Machín's men have been able to score two goals, from Borja and Aday, that have led to extra-time. In the two halves of 15 minutes, the two teams have tried hard to desperately look for a goal that would get them through to the final. Córdoba ended the game with 10 men after Stankevicius was sent off and Girona sealed the 3-1 score on the break with Cristian Herrera finishing it ingeniously in the 117th minute, with a great lob over the goalkeeper Razak.
With last season in mind, a season in which Girona had the opportunity to qualify directly and finally lost in the playoffs semi-finals, the White and Reds will try to make their dream come true and play in La Liga, in a two-legged game that is guaranteed to be emotionally intense against a team like Osasuna that has experience in Spanish elite category and who eliminated the other Catalan team fighting for promotion, Nàstic Tarragona.
