Athletic Club has defeated Deportivo Alavés 2-0 in San Mamés. Etxeita and Aduriz, from penalty, have been the authors of the rojiblancos goals.

Triumph in the derby to start the calendar year, seventh consecutive meeting of the league without losing, eighth match with a clean sheet and three important points to reach the upper middle positions of the leaderboard.

Our team has been a fair winner in a crash that was not good for us last season. In today’s, however, Athletic, in addition to reaffirming its defensive strength, has been rediscovered with the goal in San Mamés and has broken the statistic that said that we did not win for a decade the first match of the year.

In addition, the goal of Etxeita has come after corner kick, which removes another mark in the panel of negative records. After the early goal the team has continued to press and despite the final minutes of the first half has controlled the match with solvency.

In the second half, also with several chances to score, the goal has only come with a penalty converted by Aduriz, which has already scored goals to the twenty teams currently playing in the First Division. From there to the final total superiority and three important points waiting to close the first round with the visit on Sunday to RCD Espanyol.
