Athletic Club has won 0-1 against CD Leganés in Butarque. En-Nesyri, in its own goal, has scored the only goal of the match.

With a climatologically unpleasant afternoon, with wind and rain as protagonists, Athletic has taken a further step towards Europe. With today’s match has gained an advantage to consolidate the seventh place, waiting for the last derby of the season, this Saturday at 13:00 against Deportivo Alavés in San Mamés.

In this sense, the triumph obtained today is very important, since none of the six first classified has won in Butarque. As planned, it has been a very disputed match, not only in the field, but also on the blackboard, since the two teams have presented a similar scheme. Between the mutual annulment and the bad weather, the first part has passed without surprises until En-Nesyri has involuntarily finished off a corner kick thrown by Lekue.

The beginning of the second half has brought the most complicated minutes, but in the end has been imposed the defensive solvency of Athletic against the plays of the centers of Leganés. In general, has lacked attack, and in the best chance of the match, Williams –which with yesterday fulfilled its first 200 games with Athletic– could not overcome Cuellar in his exit. Even so, in the end, the hundreds of fans who were present have enjoyed it.

On the opposite side, is to mention Yeray’s injury. Something that the breadth staff, as seen today, has been able to solve.

We hope that with European wind approaching everything will be easier.
