Athletic Club has defeated Sevilla FC 0-1 at Sánchez Pizjuán, but has been disqualified from the Cup after the 1-3 result last week at San Mamés. Gorka Guruzeta has scored the only goal of the contest being this his first goal in an official match. With this Cup encounter, the captain Markel Susaeta has disputed his first 500 games defending the elastic of Athletic Club, a record that is the fifth to reach, after having done so far Iribar, Rojo, Etxeberria and Iraola.
Farewell to the Cup, no less disappointing as expected, although the 1-3 of San Mamés foreshadowed an almost impossible undertaking. On the other hand, the team has shown that they give their best in all circumstances, that it has done so with ten changes from Sunday’s starting eleven and that it has been able to defeat for the second time in four days one of the fittest teams in the league championship.
Last night’s match in Seville has been an even duel and, unfortunately, we will be left with the doubt of what could have happened if the striker Guruzeta had succeeded in one of the two opportunities of the first half, one with his foot and the other by a header.
Above the lucubrations, Athletic played with confidence and received the prize in the form of a goal, but perhaps too late, thanks to a splendid header from Guruzeta. There was hardly any time left, but it seemed that the dynamics of the team is positive. Let’s hope so on Sunday in Villarreal.
