Athletic Club 1 – Olympique Marseille 1
The Athletic Club has tied 1-1 against Olympique de Marseille in San Mamés on a day that, in addition qualifying for the following European round, will be remembered as the day in which we paid tribute, with an impressive minute of silence, to Rafa Iriondo.
The first half, the visitors had clear superiority, despite the fact that their goal arrived when our team appeared to have more control over the game.
Upon restart of play, the rojiblancos reacted well and forced OM to ponder more about defending than attacking. After an arduous team effort, came the header by Sabin Merino that is worth, along with the 0-1 from the first leg, the qualification so as to be present in the Nyon draw, where the best 16 teams of the competition will be taking part.
Meanwhile, the Liga does not pardon and on Sunday we receive the difficult visit by Valencia.
