Castellanos leads Girona to La Liga win at Sevilla


 Taty Castellanos of Girona FC celebrates a goal during the spanish league, La Liga Santander, football match played between Sevilla FC and Girona FC at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium on May 1, 2023, in Sevilla, Spain. 

Former Major League Soccer scoring leader Taty Castellanos has struck again, and Girona followed up their win against Real Madrid with another over Sevilla in Spain’s La Liga.

Juanpe Ramirez scored in the 23rd minute and Castellanos sealed the 2-0 victory in the 55th on Monday night to give Girona their second straight victory. Castellanos, playing on a one-season loan from New York City FC, scored all four goals in the 4-2 win against defending champion Madrid in the previous round.

The win moved the Catalan club into eighth place, while Sevilla stayed 11th after the setback at home.

Sevilla were trying to extend their unbeaten streak to five matches in all competitions having beaten Villarreal, Valencia and Athletic Bilbao in the league, and Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Elsewhere, striker Inaki Williams converted a penalty kick six minutes into second-half added time and Athletic Bilbao salvaged a 1-1 draw at Mallorca.

The penalty came after a controversial handball inside the area.

Mallorca opened the scoring through South Korean midfielder Lee Kang-in in the 58th.

The result left Athletic in seventh place, still in contention for one of the European places. Mallorca, winless in two matches, stayed 12th.

Barcelona have an 11-point lead over second-placed Real Madrid with six rounds remaining.
