Resounding triumph in the derby

Athletic Club 1 SD Eibar 0

Feb 23, 2019

Athletic Club has defeated SD Eibar 1-0 in San Mamés. Raúl García scored the only goal of the night in the first minute of the fixture. One and enough to obtain the totally deserved three points of the derby.

Scoring in the first minute in an unquestionable advantage, even more in closed encounters. However, the principal merit of Athletic was that, except in a score of minutes in the second half, has been able to read the match better that the team from Gipuzkoa and has played in the most appropriate way taking into account previous experiences.

After the early goal from Raul García, author of the last three goals of our team, and before the break, the red-and-white ones have had the best and more numerous chances of increasing the advantage, like for example in a ball sent to the crossbar by Beñat.

In the second half Eibar has advanced its lines somewhat, but once solved a stretch of certain burdens, personified in a shot in plate of Cucurella that involuntarily has disrupted Enrich, the final straight has returned us to a fresher and more vertical Athletic sustained in a great collective work.

With 33 points the lasts positions of the classification are a little further and on Sunday it is time to visit Valencia CF, a fixture as complicated as attractive, always with the healthy intention of receiving few goals and scoring a lot.
