Real Madrid could see FC Barcelona moving even further away in LaLiga after a shock 4-2 defeat away at Girona on Tuesday. A sublime performance by Taty Castellanos, who scored all four goals scored by Girona, handed defeat to Madrid. Los Blancos could only score consolation goals, which came from Vinicius Junior and Lucas Vazquez.
After the game head coach Carlo Ancelotti wasn’t impressed by the performance of his team. “We lacked strength and commitment without the ball, and we left transitions. The weight of the game was good with the ball, but without it we left too much space and they scored two goals in their first two attacks.”
The Italian also bemoanded the timing of Girona’s third goal, which was scored less than 60 seconds into the second half. “The 3-1 inside the first minute of the second half has cut our legs. We are very hurt, obviously, but now we have to get up soon because we have everything at stake still. We will get up.”
