Less than 24 hours after Real Madrid's difficult victory over Las Palmas 2-1 to take the lead, the Catalan team regained first place with 55 points, one point behind the royal team, which has one game less.
Girona has increasingly strengthened its position that allows it to finish the season at least in runner-up position, as it now has an 11-point lead over third-place Barcelona, which fell to Villarreal 5-3 on Saturday.
Girona awaits 3 important matches in its quest to win the first title in its history when it faces Real Sociedad, Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao in the next 3 weeks.
Girona returned to winning ways after falling into a draw at the hands of Real Mallorca, 3-2, in the quarter-finals of the Spanish Cup.
This is Girona's 17th win this season, compared to 4 draws and a loss.
