The Athletic Club have defeated the Real Club Celta 0-3 at Balaídos. Raúl García, twice, and Mikel Rico have been the authors of the goals.

Paraphrasing the advertisers, a fantastic week with nine points in seven days, an almost unrepeatable booty in the season history of our team. In addition, after four consecutive victories, the Athletic endures the challenge of the rest teams involved in the European fight and continues, with three more finals to be played, in the sixth place.

Although from the initial whistle it has become clear who wanted and needed the points in dispute, it has cost to portray the superiority against a rival who sought the surprise with balls behind the back of the defence.

Everything has gone better after the first goal of Raul Garcia. After the break, the tendency of the first half has been ratified when Raul has pushed to the net a save of the goalkeeper after a very strong shot of Williams.

As a result of that the luck was cast and the pace of the game has declined, although the red and white ones have continued to create opportunities. Rico has rounded the scoreline with a powerful left-footed, his first goal as a visitor with the Athletic and, as his previous shot that ended in goal, against the Betis in San Mamés, also was with the left foot.

End to a hectic week with 62 points, sixth in the table, with three finals still to come and everything yet to decide. And the first one, on Sunday a new derby at 12:00 h in Mendizorrotza.
