Girona dispatched Getafe 3-1 at home in the last fixture of the previous La Liga round. It was the team’s maiden top-flight win in three years.
Michel’s troops secured promotion to the elite tier of Spanish football after eliminating the likes of Eibar and Tenerife in the playoffs this June.
They started the new La Liga campaign with a dismal showing in a 1-0 defeat at Valencia but only to shine in the maiden fixture in front of the home crowd on Monday.
Girona will have a nice opportunity to back up this win just four days later when they play host to Celta Vigo in the third round of the competition.
Celta took just one point from the opening two rounds, conceding six goals in the process. They shared spoils with Espanyol in a 2-2 stalemate on the opening day before falling 1-4 to Real Madrid on Saturday, playing both matches on the home patch.
Argentine manager Eduardo Coudet has reasons to be worried about his team’s recent defensive displays because Celta Vigo seem to be very easy to break down at the start of the season.
Not only had they shipped six goals in the inaugural two rounds, but they also allowed two goals in a 2-1 defeat at Sporting Braga in one of the final preseason checks.
This will be the music to the ears of Christian Stuani who bagged his maiden goal of the season in Monday’s win over Getafe.
