WATCH: Andreas Christensen volleys Barcelona in front, Girona hit back immediately for 1-1

What a start to proceedings at Montilivi. Barcelona opened the scoring inside the opening three minutes, but straight from kick-off, Girona have managed to find an immediate equaliser.

It was Andreas Christensen that scored the opener for the visitors. Lamine Yamal chipped the ball into his direction, and a first-time volley flew underneath Paulo Gazzaniga to give Barcelona the dream start.

However, that dream turned to a nightmare less than 60 seconds later as Girona got an equaliser. Ivan Martin was played in behind, and his cross was headed home by Artem Dovbyk, who adds his 20th goal in La Liga in his bid to win the Pichichi Trophy in his debut season.

What a remarkable start to the match, and it sums up Barcelona’s season that they have conceded immediately after going ahead. It’s a terrible goal to concede from their perspective after a fine strike from Christensen, although it was brilliant striking instincts from Dovbyk, who has been incredible this season.
