Girona beat Deportivo 1-2 on Monday evening to move above their hosts and three points clear of the drop zone. The first two goals were from the penalty spot, Aday putting the Catalans in front after Kayode was fouled by Albentosa, and Lucas Pérez making it all square after he was brought down by Ramalho. However Portu got the winner with twenty minutes to go to leave local coach Pepe Mel facing an uncertain future after six games without a victory.
