Barcelona suffers shocking 2-4 defeat against Girona in La L

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid

Barcelona was given a reality check as they lost 2-4 at home to La Liga outfit Girona on Sunday night. It was the visitors that took the lead in the 12th minute to serve Barcelona the early twist in the contest.

But star forward Robert Lewandowski equalized in the 19th minute to make it 1-1 from a resulting corner-kick.

After a series of goal attempts, Miguel Gutierrez scored to give his Girona side a 1-2 lead at the Nou Camp Stadium.

With much having taken place in terms of chances created amid the level of intensity in the match, Girona surprisingly increased their lead to make it 1-3.

Girona got their third goal through Valery Fernandez who was assisted by Cristian Stuani in the 80th minute of the match.

But Barcelona was given hope of a dramatic comeback similar to that of Alex Ferguson's Manchester United when Ikay Gundogan scored to reduce the deficit to 2-3 with few minutes still left to play.

Gundogan scored in the 90+2 minutes thanks to an assist from striker Ferran Torres.

But Girona wasn't done with Barcelona as they scored the fourth goal to ensure a 2-4 defeat of Xavi's Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

The query now is with Barcelona faltering in recent weeks from all indications what could be their fate later on in the ongoing campaign.
