Las Palmas' effort in Girona breaks 3 minutes from the end (1-0)

There are no reactions yet. Be the first!

Both teams offered an open match with chances in both danger areas and notable interventions by the goalkeepers Gazzaniga and Valles respectively. The fourth matchday of La Liga also saw the debut of the Argentine Máximo Perrone, breaking a streak of two seasons without players from his country in the Canarian club.

Coach García Pimienta altered the initial lineup due to Sandro Ramírez's discomfort while traveling to Tarragona. In his place, Fran Pejiño was in the starting lineup along with the rest of the players who had started in the previous match against Real Sociedad.

The yellow team immediately sought the goal. Their presentation at Montilivi was ambitious, with a suffocating vocation to thwart the home side's initiative. And they could have even taken the lead in the 2nd minute after a deep play by Munir. Pejiño won the race against his marker, but his shot was saved by the goalkeeper Gazzaniga with a low leg save.

 The ball traveled vertically across the length of the field. Before the 20th minute, Valles also intervened to reject shots from Tsygankov and Savio. Sory Kaba, on the other hand, created a personal skill move that ended with a powerful shot hitting the side of the Girona net.

The referee, assisted by VAR, disallowed a goal for Girona due to a clear offside by Stuani in the action. It was the first worrying moment when the home team also established their style of play. And it wasn't the only one. In the 43rd minute, Busquets Ferrer also disallowed another goal for Stuani after a corner kick. Alex Suárez had been fouled in the block by David López. Stuani had taken advantage of it to score unopposed.

At the start of the second half, Gazzaniga once again became the protagonist of the match, preventing the 0-1 in two actions. In the 54th minute, he caught a shot in the area by Pejiño, who had received a pass from Sory Kaba. Three minutes later, the Argentine goalkeeper responded with agility to repel a header from Julián Araujo, who had found a good cross from his counterpart Sergi Cardona in the area.

Las Palmas regained their momentum with substitutions, returning to the attack in search of victory. The ball was once again in the visitor's control in the final part of the match. But the islanders' plays didn't end up with the desired result.

When everything seemed headed for another goalless draw, Cristian Portu scored with a header, assisted by his teammate Yan Couto. There was no time or chances to level the score.
