Jaume took the captain’s armband and put in a great performance

He started again in the league and kept a clean sheet after some good saves

Jaume returned to the starting eleven and wore the captain’s armband as he made a string of great saves at Montilivi. In his first LaLiga match as captain, every time that Girona FC looked to beat him, he proved to be a true wall in defence.

The goalkeeper picked up his fourth league appearance of the season, alongside it being his second clean sheet. Previously, Jaume had taken the armband for the Copa del Rey clash against UD Las Palmas, but in LaLiga he is proving that he can contribute too. A great save denied Borja García the opportunity to steer home a close-range finish, with Stuani also kept out by some quick thinking too.

In the second half, Jaume was at his best once again to deny a Juanpe header with a smart save, with Olunga’s shot hitting the post being the only real scare of the evening. The VCF goalkeeper came back into the fold and repaid Marcelino’s confidence.
