Míchel Sánchez, coach of Girona, has them between his eyebrows 51 punts that the Montilivi team, under the command of Pablo Machín, managed in 2018 to approve, and to do so with a good grade, its debut in the First Division. The Madrid native has said more than once, in press conferences and in some interviews, that one of his goals is overcome this barrier. Whether or not he’ll be able to pull it off remains to be seen, but at least the most recent feelings and recent results have fixed a bad start and make it the way to at least try. At the moment, however, it seems that he is also adding arguments to try to equal another record from that historic season. Girona were saved without too many difficulties, with a meritorious goal tenth final position22 points from relegation, and without having suffered no expulsion. none In 38 days. At the moment, 14 have been held this year and the team, now with Míchel at the helm, has not had to regret a red head either. At least as far as some footballers are concerned, because the technician has indeed been punished.
After the first 1,260 minutes of the championship, and now that the ball has stopped rolling because it is about to start a World Cup, the one in Qatar, which will last for a few weeks, all the Primera teams have suffered, at the very least, some expulsion Except for one. Girona has been saved, at least so far, becoming the cleanest team in this aspect. Nothing to do with Betis, for example, whose players have seen up to seven red cards. Or the six that have been taught to the footballers of Sevilla and Getafe. Similar to the records of Girona, Valladolid, Athletic, Real Sociedad and Real Madrid appear there. Each of these teams has only suffered one sending off. Curiously, the Madrid victim was Toni Kroos on the day he faced the white-and-reds at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.
In the course of their debut in the elite, in 17/18, Girona closed the 38 days without any of their players being sent off
Since that unpolluted course of 17/18, the rest of the seasons have always suffered some red. Especially during the 20/21 exercise, in the Second Division and with Francisco Rodríguez on the bench. Until 12 red, quite a record. It is the year that in the field of Almeria, in a match that ended with goalless draw (surprisingly) the Catalans had up to three players sent off: Monchu, Cristóforo and Ramalho.
Clean of reds, the team has seen 32 yellow cards so far and is slightly above the 23 shown by Real Madrid and Athletic Club, the cleanest in this aspect. Espanyol have seen 27, Valladolid 28 and teams such as Betis, Celta and Villarreal 31. In Montilivi, the most cautioned are Oriol Romeu and Valentín Castellanos. The only ones who accumulate, each of them, four yellow because they are only one away from suspension. There are three that have shown Miguel Gutiérrez; two for Stuani, Bernardo, Arnau, Santi Bueno, David Lopez and Juanpe; and one addressed to Aleix Garcia, Yangel, Gazzaniga, Couto, Javi Hernández, Valery, Toni Villa, Reinier and Samu Saiz.
