FC Barcelona 3 Athletic Club 1

Athletic Club has been defeated 3-1 in the match against FC Barcelona in the Camp Nou, so with the 2-1 result at San Mames, now is time to focus on UEL and League. Our unique scorer has been Saborit while the goals from Barcelona have been scored by Suarez, Neymar and Messi.

Athletic, which came out to the pitch with 10 players made in Lezama and the 11th debuted with our jersey in first division, couldn’t surprise despite of having options to do it until the last minute.

Despite of having, on the one hand, many sanctions and injured players, and on the other hand, the acummulative effort done playing 3 matches in 6 days, and adding the injury of Etxeita during the match, our team has been competitive from minute 1 at San Mamés until the minute 90 at Camp Nou.

On the first half, there was no goal occasions from Athletic’s part, and the unique goal occasion from Barcelona’s part, was used by Suarez to put his team ahead on the scoreboard. And if that was not enough, in the beginning of the second half, Bóveda slipped inside our area knocking down Neymar, who scored the 2-0 from the penalty spot.

With everything against us, the team kept on facing the match and Saborit shortened distances with a great header, scoring his second goal with our jersey. But Messi has been really accurate on a free kick putting the 3-1 on the scoreboard.

Now its time to focus on the League, visiting Butarque on Saturday to face CD Leganés.
