The unexpected bundle from La Liga With two goals from Ukrainian Artem Dovbyk, Girona defeated Alaves 3-0 on Monday to reclaim the top spot in the standings.
Girona, who shares ownership with Manchester City, defeated Real Madrid easily to take a two-point lead.
On minute 23, Dovbyk, 26, gave Girona the lead. Two minutes later, Portu’s angled strike from the edge of the penalty area doubled Girona’s advantage.
With little opposition from Alaves, Dovbyk scored his tenth goal of the Liga in the 58th minute after Yan Couto was tripped in the penalty area to add a third goal for Alaves.
On Thursday, when Alaves host Real, Girona—who have only lost once this season—will visit Real Betis.
