In Spain’s top football league, La Liga, a small team called Girona has become the surprise leaders. They played really well, beating Sevilla 5-1.
A player named Artem Dovbyk scored three goals in just seven minutes, which is very impressive. This win put Girona at the top, ahead of the famous teams Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Real Madrid also won their match, but it was a bit controversial. They beat Almeria 3-2. Almeria is the team at the bottom of the league, so they’re not doing very well this season. Madrid’s win was dramatic.
They were losing 2-0, but then they came back to win. There was a big moment in the game where Madrid scored a goal that Almeria thought was a handball, but the referees allowed it. Almeria’s players felt that they were treated unfairly.
Madrid’s coach, Carlo Ancelotti, said that his team was tired because they had played a lot of games recently. They won against Barcelona last Sunday and then lost against another team, Atletico Madrid, in the middle of the week. But they managed to win this game, which was important for them.
Barcelona, another big team, also won their game. They beat Real Betis 4-2. Ferran Torres, a player for Barcelona, scored three goals. Barcelona had a strong start but then let Betis score twice.
However, they managed to win in the end. Torres, who has played 100 games for Barcelona, said that his success is because of his hard work and belief in himself.
Barcelona’s coach, Xavi Hernandez, wasn’t happy with the refereeing in the Real Madrid game. He suggested that the referees were not fair, but he didn’t say much more because he was worried about getting into trouble.
In the game where Girona won, they were really strong, especially Dovbyk. Girona is a team that hasn’t been in the top league for very long, so it’s a big deal that they are doing so well.
They have a good team spirit, and even the players who don’t play much are supporting the team a lot. This is a surprising season in Spanish football, with Girona leading the league ahead of the famous teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona.
