Dec 22, 2018

Athletic Club and Real Valladolid have tied 1-1 in San Mamés. Aritz Aduriz, thanks to a penalty shot, and Oscar Plano have been the scorers of the fixture.

At the end of the encounter, what seemed to be an enviable balance (four games without receiving a goal and three golden points) has become a bitter tie despite leaving us out of the bottom three.

During the first half  the team has totally ruled the encounter, without the depth and the arrivals of the previous match at home. However, the clima of the first period has arrived thanks to a penalty masterfully shot by Aritz Aduriz who, surely, will enter the football history for the peculiar way of kicking the ball.

After the good taste in the mouth at half-time, the second half has just brought one dangerous occasion by the team from Valladolid. A bitten shot by Oscar Plano that has finished in the base of the post. However, in the discount time a play that was as isolated as unfortunate has reminded us that the road will be hard and difficult.

The Christmas breaks arrives and the comeback will start in Vigo on January. Neither Yeray nor Raúl García will be in the match against Real Club Celta, after seeing below cards that represent the fifth and, therefore, the consequent sanction match.
