Girona’s Title Aspirations

Girona remains in contention for a potential shock first-ever La Liga title, but their hopes suffered a setback with a 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad. This result saw them lose further ground in the title race, especially as Real Madrid gear up for a crucial derby clash with Atletico Madrid.
