Athletic Club lost 3-2 against Atlético de Madrid in the Wanda Metropolitano last Saturday. Iñaki Williams scored both goals for our team, while Thomas, Rodri and Godin were the scorers for the Madrid team.
Football is like that. We knew it, but it does not hurt any less when we lose in such an undeserved way, especially with the difficulty of playing well with the team trying to get out of the delicate positions of the classification. Furthermore, for doing it against a team that according to the records, nowadays is in the elite of the football.
After standing the first attacks during the opening minutes, Athletic started to take over the fixture and reached the break in advantage, after Williams struck the ball from a shot from San Jose, diverted in the first instance by Oblak and the goal.
As it also happened against FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, at half time, the advantage was zurigorri and our team has not stopped looking after the victory despite receiving the hammer of the draw on our best moment on the field. Good reaction with the cross of Muniain and good definition by Iñaki Williams, however, in the last ten minutes, even by means of VAR, strategy gave the locals a bigger prize than they deserved.
The coin has not fallen to the expected side, but this attitude and play must mark the way to follow of the team against Getafe CF in San Mames. Yuri Berchiche will not be at this match, after seeing his fifth yellow card and a red one at the end of last Saturday’s match.
