Sporting 2-Athletic Club 1

Athletic Club lost 2-1 against Sporting Clube de Portugal. Aurtenetxe scored our team’s goal in the 54th minute after finishing off the rebound from a free kick with his left foot. However, in the 76th and 80th minutes Insúa and Capel, respectively, turned the game around and left everything open for San Mamés.

The tie, therefore, will be decided at home in the warmth of our fans, without ignoring the new display of the 4,000 fans who travelled to Lisbon before, during and after the match.

In the first half, as expected, the home side left the initiative to the Red and Whites, who had serious difficulties in overcoming their opponents’ barrier.

In the second half, on the other hand, after Aurtenetxe’s goal, the game was put in their favour and Amorebieta came close to making it 0-2, but his shot crashed against the post. Everything seemed to be under control, but Insúa’s header from a loose ball in the box and Capel’s long-range effort made things difficult but, of course, not impossible.

The game is set to be another magical night at the Cathedral, but before that there is still LaLiga on Sunday at 16:00 in Santander.
