Athletic Club defeated Real Club Celta 1-2 in the Abanca-Balaídos Stadium. Iker Muniain and Iñaki Williams scored Athletic’s goals, while Fran Beltrán has scored the local goal.

This is the first win away in LaLiga so far, a triumph that comes in the most opportune time. Although the victory has been well deserved, it wasn’t without some suffering, the logical distress that causes the fact of being in the last positions in the table.

Thanks to the triumph in Vigo, Athletic leaves the last three positions of the table. With just one fixture left until the halfway point of LaLiga, the visit of Sevilla FC to San Mames, the 19 points only ensure that the way out of these positions will be long.

The good results of the encounters of the teams around Athletic Club in the classification made the match in Vigo even more transcendental and the team has faced it as expected. The Club has deservedly took the lead thanks to a pass form Williams that Muniain has been able to finish off. However, the curse of the discount minutes has arrived once against and Fran Beltran tied the match before the half-time.

The question asked in the zurigorri environments was the following: Will the team be able to recover from this setback? The answer appeared as soon as the match resumed. Moreover, thanks to a cross from Herrerín Williams was able to recover soon the advantage. In this occasion, the team defended with solvency, the third goal wasclose and, paradoxically, was on the verge of reliving the curse of the discounts when Maxi Gomez has headed out by little.

After the joy, the first chapter of the trilogy against Sevilla FC arrives on Thursday, in this case in an attractive Cup fixture with less tension.
