FC Barcelona 6 – Athletic Club 0

Athletic Club lost 6-0 before FC Barcelona in Camp Nou, in the match corresponding to the first matchday of the second round of the Liga. Messi, Neymar, Suárez (3) and Rakitic have been the authors of the goals.

A conditioned defeat due to what occurred in the 3rd minute, when Suárez got away from Etxeita and was brought down by Iraizoz. The referee did not interpret it as a punishable action by the forward and considered it an infraction by the goalkeeper deserving a straight red card.

Playing one player short during the whole match, the scoreboard indicated an unfavourable 2-0 at halftime. Nevertheless, the early third goal shortly upon re-start of play the game took a step toward an unquestionable local superiority until the end of what would be a landslide.

And if we do not want a cup, a cup and a half, since the most immediate option to overcome the blow comes to us this same Wednesday in San Mamés against the same rival, but in the King’s Cup (Copa). Let’s just hope we can do much better and be luckier, in all aspects.
