Barcelona Stunned by Girona: Fans React as La Liga Giants Fall 4-2 in Shock Defeat

Barcelona faced an unexpected setback in La Liga, suffering a shocking 4-2 defeat against Girona, leaving fans in disbelief and sparking strong reactions.

The Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys witnessed Artem Dovyk opening the scoring for Girona within 12 minutes, swiftly countered by Robert Lewandowski’s equalizer. Miguel Gutierrez then put Girona in the lead before half-time, a lead they successfully maintained throughout the match.

Valery Fernandez extended Girona’s lead to 3-1 in the 80th minute. Although Ilkay Gundogan managed to narrow the deficit for Barca with a goal in stoppage time, Cristhian Stuani sealed Girona’s historic victory, securing a 4-2 win that propelled them to the top of the league standings.

Remarkably, in just their fourth season in La Liga, Girona is displaying remarkable form, poised to surpass their previous tenth-placed finish with their unexpectedly strong start to the season.

Fans expressed shock at Barcelona’s home defeat, with one boldly predicting Girona’s title win, stating: “Girona is winning the league.” Another fan expressed disillusionment with Barcelona’s manager Xavi, asserting: “Xavi Ball is finished.”

Following Girona’s victory, they moved two points clear at the top of the table after 16 games, benefitting from Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw at Real Betis earlier that day. Meanwhile, Barcelona currently stands fourth, trailing the leaders by seven points in the league standings.
