In the season opener in Montilivi, Girona achieved their first victory of the season by clearly defeating Getafe in a game in which the Girona were superior at all times. Yangel Herrera in the first half and Stuani, with two goals in the second, allow the white-and-reds to continue unbeaten after the first two League matches and a pre-season full of matches.
The locals took to the field with an eleven very similar to the one that was already able to score in Anoeta, with the only novelty being Ivan Martín in place of Yan Couto. This time, however, Míchel preferred to place Tsygankov on the right wing and Savinho on the left, his natural wing. And his bet couldn't have turned out better, because it was precisely on the side of the fast and skilled Brazilian winger that Girona's first big dangerous move came, with a cross from Savinho himself that Yangel Herrera headed in at the bottom of the network. The referee, Figueroa Vázquez, annulled the Venezuelan's goal in the first instance for offside, but the VAR review gave it as good and the Girona were in front from a good start. The best way to combat the defensive approach of José Bordalás' team, which was able to keep a clean sheet against Barça. At least this time the referee penalized their hardness and showed them up to four yellow cards before half time.
Yangel's goal forced the Madrid players to advance and, shortly afterwards, Damián put fear into the bodies of the Girona players with a free kick that went off the post. But it was a mirage, because Getafe continued to wait, looking for an opportunity to counterattack that never came. Only Juan Iglesias had one just before the break with an acrobatic finish.
Nor did the locals enjoy more chances to extend the score until at the beginning of the second half Stuani finished with his foot and without letting go a ball centered on the left of Miguel, who sneaked into the box. The Uruguayan, again in the starting lineup, did not waste Míchel's opportunity and, minutes later, charged the coach with more reasons, taking advantage of an unfortunate action by the goalkeeper Soria to make the third. In the final minutes, the Girona bully gave way to Dovbyk, who is still waiting to enjoy his first title.
