Girona trusts Montilivi its jump to Primera

first_imgClassification. Girona chains five consecutive days in playoff positions, but it is bumping into a wall. And this is fifth place Improving this position as far as the course is going is mission impossible, but it is the barrier they must overcome to dream of direct ascent. The draw last Sunday against Mirandés prevented them from catapulting to second place, but there are 12 days left to finish the League and it is not a chimera. Moreover, Zaragoza, second, is only six points and Cádiz, leader, nine. There are 36 points left to play. Girona has set its sights on Primera. The sensations given by the rojiblanca team are good and, on Saturday against Albacete, you can continue taking steps forward. Those of Pep Lluís Martí, if they do not fall, would reach the seventh game by adding and strengthen them in the playoff. But the goal is to hunt down direct ascent teams, there is room for maneuver, and hence in the locker room they have a clear thing: Montilivi must be key to it. So far this year, the rojiblanco team has 46 points and 33 of them have achieved them at home. It is the second best place in Segunda and they want to continue exploiting it.Securing the points at home will be crucial to try to make the definitive leap towards Primera and more considering that they have to visit direct rivals. Without going further, the final of the League will be exciting because the last three blocks that will pass through Montilivi will be Zaragoza, Almería and Cádiz, the first three classified. Of course, the other rivals that will come to the rojiblanco fief will not be simple either because they are immersed in the fight for the descent, like Albacete and Racing, or for not being in anyone’s zone and fighting to approach the playoff like the Numancia. In recent days, Girona has managed to create a great communion with its fans and hence the atmosphere that is breathed in the city is ideal for working with confidence and calm. The players feel that way and that To see the last defeat at home in the league, it is necessary to go back to 2019, on December 22, 21 against Mirandés (0-3).last_img read more

The CDF will also post an additional 25 engines, 14 bulldozer crews, 28 hand crews and extra helicopters and air tankers at critical spots around the region, Berlant said. “We’re talking about hundreds of additional firefighters,” he said. Long linked to devastating fires, the seasonal Santa Ana winds are created when high pressure over the Great Basin sends cold, dry air rushing toward Southern California, where it warms rapidly and speeds up as it squeezes down mountain passes and canyons and blows out to sea. A fire weather planning forecast issued Monday by the National Weather Service office in San Diego said the outlook for Friday and Saturday was for a possible “weak to moderate Santa Ana wind event.” “The exact strength of the offshore flow is still uncertain but there is potential for moderately strong gusty winds through and below mountain canyons and passes. Offshore winds will weaken by Sunday,” the forecast said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Firefighters still mopping up last week’s firestorms are preparing for another round of Santa Ana winds this weekend. The notorious Santa Anas, predicted to arrive Friday, will have sustained winds of 15 mph – much weaker than the fierce blasts of dry air that spread flames last week, but still strong enough to cause trouble to exhausted crews. “One of the reasons we’re monitoring these winds so closely is that Santa Ana winds are very unpredictable,” said Daniel Berlant, a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. “We are going to be prepared for this wind event.” Berlant said the winds are expected to last through Saturday before dying down. last_img read more
