By: Manu Tournoux

At the top of the La Liga standings, Girona did no better than a draw at Betis on Thursday evening (1-1, 18th day of La Liga). For its part, Real Sociedad also shared the points in Cadiz (0-0).

Girona’s trip did not look easy on Thursday evening. Leader of the Spanish championship standings, Eric Garcia’s team still hoped to achieve a good result on the pitch of Real Betis, but the locals, undisputed experts in drawing matches in La Liga, stood up to their visitors and shared the points (1-1, 18th day). It was Artem Dovbyk who opened the scoring for Girona (0-1, 39th), but Betis believed in it until the end and managed to equalize at the very end of the match, thanks to German Pezzella (1-1, 88th). In the ranking, the Blanquivermells remain in the lead with three points ahead of Real Madrid who play Alaves a little later this Thursday.

For its part, Real Sociedad had a second draw in a row on the national scene, this time against Cadiz (0-0). Among this poorly ranked team, Paris Saint-Germain’s future opponents in the round of 16 of the Champions League did not find the fault, only managing to get one shot on target during the game. Sociedad remains sixth, while Cádiz is seventeenth, two units ahead of the red zone.
