Athletic Club has defeated Real Sociedad 1-0 in the final of the II Euskal Herriko Txapela, plyed at the Stadium Gal, in Irun. Iñaki Williams scored the only goal of the match in the first minutes of the second half.
In the second attempt the Txapela is coming home, as this time the final has ended without any notable surprises and the triumph has been deserved.
Our team has overcome the quality of the opponent and all the inconveniences inherent to any preseason: heat, turf condition, fatigue, changes and the consequent lack of rhythm in the match etc.
For 70 minutes they have been superior to their opponents and have shown virtues that will certainly help in the league journey.
And with no time for rest, an airplane takes the team to Germany where on Sunday, August 5, we will fight in the Opel Cup in Mainz against the local team and AC Fiorentina.
