Levante UD 2 Athletic Club 2

The game between Athletic Club and Levante finished as a 2-2 draw at Ciutat de València. Susaeta and San José were the scorers of our goals while the local ones were scored by Casadesús, and Etxeita (own goal). With the two goals scored today, we have already obtained 100 this season (53 in LaLiga, 5 in the Supercopa, 14 in the Copa del Rey and 28 in the UEL).

Thanks to the draw, at least, we can mathematically ensure a European position for the season 2016/17, which will be our third consecutive campaign in Europe. We still have three matches left and our position at the end of the season depends on those results.

Today’s midday match wasn’t  one of Athletic Club’s best. Weather conditions didn’t help. Due to the warm temperature and a dry pitch, the game’s intensity was low. However, our squad bossed the match until the half time interval, as the local team scored.

The second half was quite similar with a good opening and some weak minutes after the own goal. Nevertheless, Athletic Club once again showed that we never give up on scoring until the end of the game. Susaeta and San José scored the goals.

In order to finish as high as up the league as possible, Sunday’s match against Real Club Celta will be crucial.
