Girona have missed a chance to return to the top of the Spanish league when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Athletic Bilbao.
Girona are the surprise team in La Liga and had won 11 of their previous 12 games.
The Catalan side were the more spritely early on Monday (Tuesday AEDT) and had a first-half goal ruled out after a video review.
The hosys took the lead 11 minutes into the second half when Ukrainian winger Viktor Tsygankov charged into a crowded penalty box and swept home a low cross from the left.
Girona's 19-year-old Brazilian Savinho was once again one of the best players on show and it was his pass that led to Tsygankov's goal.
However, the home side could not retain the lead. Twelve minutes after the opener Girona defenders failed to halt a run from Inaki Williams and he got off a side-footed shot that sneaked inside the goalkeeper's left-hand post.
The result means Girona remain in second place, level on 35 points after 14 rounds with leaders Real Madrid, but four points ahead of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, who were tied for third.
Bilbao moved to fifth, equal on 25 points with Basque rivals Real Sociedad.
