Athletic Club 3-Sporting Club de Portugal 1

On 9 May Athletic Club will dispute the UEFA Europa League Final in Bucharest against Atlético Madrid, after having defeated Sporting Club of Portugal. Such as things are, there’s only one more step to crystallize the European dream.

In a vibrant match in which the fans and the team once again walked together, Susaeta  opened up the scoreboard in the 17th minute with a left-footed volley after Llorente brought the ball down with his chest. Van Wolfswinkel drew in the 44th and before the break Ibai made it 2-1, also from a pass by Llorente. In the second half, Athletic’s superiority was manifested, although the third and definitive goal did not arrive until the minute 88 when tides turned and a cross from Ibai was introduced into the net by Llorente.

Thirty-five years later, once again another European Final, and in addition without no sanctioned players. It is expected that at least 10,000 Athletic fans will be present in Bucharest. One more page, cheerful in this case, in the history of our entity.

A collective success that does not stop the calendar and on Sunday we face Zaragoza with the challenge to continue challenging for European places via LaLiga.

Meanwhile, we must only congratulate all those that make up the Athletic family and remind everyone that the European dream is still alive. We have one last station: Bucharest.
