Athletic can hope to move upwards at the end of the championship, or at least that is what the result 3-1 against Betis seems to indicate. After four consecutive weeks obtaining points, the sixth position is closer. No doubt, the first half has been complete, in spite of the players of Betis having begun the match scoring with one header of Fernando. In a few minutes, before half-time, our team has showed the reasons for being one of the top goalers of the championship, exactly the fourth one together with FC Barcelona, and in this way, Joseba Etxeberria , Urzaiz -they have scored 11 goals each – and Ezquerro – he has scored 10- have scored today the three goals seen during the match.
In the second half, the mistakes of Vallecas and Montjuïc haven’t recurred and the red and white players have defended their advantage. The most negative parts of the match are the fiifth yellow card given to Asier del Horno and that Joseba Etxeberria was hit on one thigh. To sum up: good start for the weekend that must be finished off by the women’s team and Bilbao Athletic.
