Athletic Club Women lost 3-0 against EDF Logroño in what was the Lionesses’ final Primera Iberdrola fixture of 2020.

Ángel Villacampa’s squad got off to the worst possible start, conceding two goals in the first ten minutes. Then the proverbial hill turned into a mountain after Logroño scored a third shortly before the break.

Logroño’s first goal came in their first foray into Athletic’s defensive third. Asantewaa being put through on goal by Jade Boho.

The home side’s second followed minutes later. Valeria hit the back of the net from a free-kick to put her side 2-0 up in the eighth minute.

The Lionesses attempted to force their way back into the match and looked dangerous down the flanks, but Moraza and Eunate’s crosses failed to find heads in the box.

Yulema Corres then had a great chance to pull one back, but her shot went over the crossbar.

EDF Logroño got the killer blow five minutes before half-time. Asantewaa stole possession on the edge of the box and fired past Andrea de la Nava. The lionesses were 3-0 down at the break.

After the restart, Athletic kept going, but it was Logroño who had the better chances, twice almost scoring a fourth before the 65th minute.

The ball hit the post from a corner and Jade Boho had a shot saved by De La Nava. Villacampa made changes as he looked for solutions.

And it almost paid dividends. Replacements María Díaz and Valdezate linked up well, but the latter couldn’t find a way past Logroño’s keeper Tajonar.

From this point onwards the game ebbed slowly to the end as the home team leaned back on their three-goal advantage.
