After great sufferings Athletic Club has achieved three basic points against Real Racing Club (2-1) to stick to the sixth place that gives European post. In the first half, all the danger came from the ‘rojiblancos’, although without excessive penetration in the attack. In the second half, the need became virtue for Racing when the 0-1 was soon scored in a play in which Munitis took advantage of an error by Aranzubia. Nevertheless, the quick tie from a goal by Karanka, which put Athletic Club back into the game. The victory, however, did not arrive until the 90th minute of play, when Urzaiz transformed, with great serenity, the penalty goal committed on Arriaga. With just 3 matches left in the Liga fixture, Athletic has a four point advantage over the 7th place team, by which a European post is a shot away. With this last win, Athletic Club is on an eight game winning streak.
We would also like to point out that Yeste has seen his 5th yellow card and will, therefore, not play against Villareal.
