Athletic Club 0 – Valencia 3
Athletic Club has been defeated by Valencia CF (0-3), with goals scored by Soldado, the last one from a penalty. It is perhaps an excessively ample result for the merits contracted by both contenders, more so considering that the first two goals came when our team was better on the field.
The first goal came shortly before the break after an unfortunate pass by San Jose intercepted by the forward from Valencia and the second just a few minutes after restart and following a good start of game and pressure by the rojiblancos.
Later the referee, who did his difficult job, sent off Iraola due to a double yellow -he will therefore miss next Wednesday’s match against Atlético Madrid- and later awarded a penalty because San Jose handled the ball.
Thus, congratulations to Valencia CF for their victory and hope that the next Liga encounter brings about a better result. For the match at Vicente Calderón, should the trainer consider it appropriate, Amorebieta and Toquero will be available.
