The result of the game between Athletic Club and Villarreal CF, Aduriz and Trigueros have been the authors of the goals.

Once past the umpteenth stop, the return to the League has given us a game full of alternatives, with the control of the game distributed according to the phases of the same and a result that can be considered fair and that, at the same time, does not leave anyone happy.

After a start with Athletic Club’s dominion, Villarreal has found more spaces between lines and although Kepa has stopped a penalty to Trigueros, the same player has taken revenge minutes later with an accurate goal shot from outside the area.

Until the break the initial dominance has not been such, although it has resumed in the early stages of the second half with a shot from Córdoba to the crossbar.

However, the visitors have taken control of the duel until, with 20 minutes left, our team has given the final effort, with longer possessions, a game more leisurely and with danger by both wings. In one of the raids a large center of Balenziaga has been headed by Aduriz to the goal, his tenth this season, fifth in the league.

Until the end the harassment has been constant, as well as the visitor threat via dangerous counter attacks, and both teams have had to settle for a point.

Next appointment, on Thursday at 19:00, key match in the UEL against the Hertha BSC.
