Girona go top of La Liga after win over Celta Vigo

Girona are top of the La Liga table tonight after their 1-0 win over Celta Vigo.

Midfielder Yangel Herrera popped up with the all-important winner in the 91st minute of the match at Montilivi, shooting from 20 yards out to score with a superb strike that flew in off the post.

Míchel’s side have moved onto 28 points after 11 games, three points ahead of Real Madrid, who play FC Barcelona in the first Clásico of the season on Saturday afternoon.

Girona, playing the first game of the gameweek in La Liga, have now played a game more than Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

It has been a remarkable start to the season for a team that only got promoted to Spain’s top flight in 2022.

Celta remain in the bottom three after tonight’s defeat, with head coach Rafa Benítez under increasing pressure at the Galician club.
