Athletic Club drew 2-2 against SD Huesca in San Mames. All the goals came in the second half: Susaeta and Yuri Berchiche, who scored for the first time as red-and-white, put Athletic ahead but Miramon and a great goal by Avila, close to the injury time, saw the visitors get a draw.

After a first half with a local command and only one opportunity, a free kick direct to the post close to the half-time, the second half has become more exciting and bitter. Soon, Susaeta, with the left, scored the first goal of the match and afterwards, Yuri, also with his weaker foot, the right, scored the next goal for Athletic.

It seemed that the most difficult part of the game had happened but a loose ball, shot by Miramon outside the area, brought the Huesca players into the match.

Then, the equaliser came with a great goal close to the end, after a great attempt by Williams, whose shot hit the rival’s post. In the end, the points were distributed and the general feeling for Athletic and fans was bitterness over the outcome of the match. To his credit, a new debut, in this case, Gorka Guruzeta, the 616. And now, we must wait for the outcome of the postponed match against Rayo Vallecano.
