The surprise of Europe.Neither Barcelona nor Real Madrid - the Spanish league has a hot new team on the ground and it is none other than modest Girona, which counted a fifth consecutive victory on Saturday and temporarily rose to the top of La Liga.
A huge 3-5 win over Mallorca gave the red-and-white side another 3 points and raised their lead to 16 points, a point above Real Madrid (who will host Atletico in the derby tomorrow) and 3 above Barcelona, who have a game to spare.
Meanwhile, of course, Girona fans are enjoying their team, and they definitely have a meme. Some of their comments online: "History", "The second biggest team in Catalonia", "Next week against Real Madrid we will play for the lead, if you had said that two years ago no one would have believed it".
