Today, January 22, Girona played its first match after signing Viktor Tsygankov: the Catalans played away with Villarreal in the 18th round of La Liga.
However, Tsygankov’s debut with Girona did not take place today. The 25-year-old Ukrainian winger remained in the reserve of his team for the match and did not come out as a substitute.
Girona suffered a humiliating 0-1 defeat in the final seconds. Tsygankov’s team finished the match with ten men after the removal of Sebastian Bueno in the 79th minute, and in stoppage time for the second half received two penalties in their own net. Gerard Moreno didn’t convert the first one, but on the second try Dani Parejo brought victory to the hosts.
“Villarreal” – “Girona” – 1:0
Goal: Parejo 90+11 (pen)
Removal: Bueno 79 (Girona)
On 90+4 minutes, Gerard Moreno (Villarreal) missed the penalty.
