Athletic Club have drawn nil-nil against FC Barcelona in San Mamés. If we look at the most elementary theory, we find that a point against the outstanding leader is always good. Moreover, taking into account details such as that, during this season, we have not been defeated by the team from Barcelona who have had 38 consecutive league matches in which they have always scored at least a goal and that, after a week of rumours, the FC Barcelona have played against the zurigorris with their gala team available.
On the other hand, there is a bitter aftertaste. From the quantitative and qualitative point of view, the best options of scoring have been of our team. In the first half, and later, the good work of Ter Stegen has kept his team standing, especially in the chances generated by Susaeta and Raul Garcia.
In the second half, the team coached by Ernesto Valverde has pressed higher and practically during the first 30 minutes has had the monopoly of the ball, although our team has retaken the defensive solidity of other days. In the final minutes the zurigorriz have counterattacked very well and only the good work of Ter Stegen has allowed the team blaugrana to reach the end without being defeated.
The downhill positions are now at four points and Athletic is still immersed in that large group of teams that simultaneously look up and down.
