Girona have not won their first league game since 2015-16

The rojiblanco team opens this course on Saturday against Amorebieta and wants to start on the right foot. His last debut with victory, against Bilbao Athletic (0-1).


Testing is over. Girona kicks off the League this Saturday by welcoming Amorebieta in Montilivi (19:30) and looking for a happy debut. The feelings that Michel's block gives off are very positive, but now it is time to translate them into a season that seems as exciting as it is key to the future of the entity. After two consecutive lost promotion playoff finals to First, the challenge is for the third time to be the charm.

Starting the season well is crucial to gain peace of mind and become aware that the path taken during the preseason has been the right one. Girona is not expecting a simple league debut because it welcomes Amorebieta, recently promoted, but the rojiblanca squad does not think of anything other than adding the three points. And even more so when 3,360 fans will be able to attend Montilivi. Of course, in recent years he has been haunted by a jinx in training that this year they will try to shake off. They have not won the first league game since the 2015-16 season. It was in San Mamés against Bilbao Athletic (0-1) and thanks to a goal from Jairo Morillas in the 80th minute.

Six years go a long way and the proof is that there is no survivor from that triumphant premiere of the San Mamés League. Girona has changed a lot since then, but the most important thing is that now they want to relive that feeling of winning the first league. Since the 2015-16 season, the balance has been fruitful because there were four draws (against Sporting, Valladolid, Atlético de Madrid and Sevilla Atlético) and one defeat. Precisely this took place last season against Sporting. It was a difficult debut because he fell 2-0 due to Djuka's double and, in addition, Enric Franquesa was sent off.
