Hard defeat against Leganés

The red card for Unai Simóm in the 22nd minute complicated the game to the lions, who were beaten with goals from Guerrero and Assalé

Jul 16, 2020

Athletic Club was defeated 0-2 against Leganés in the last game of the season in San Mamés. A bumpy play, an expulsion to Simon in the 22nd minute for an action with Bryan Gil, condemned the lions, who fell in the last fourth hour with goals from Guerrero, after revision by VAR, and Assalé, after a great move by Avilés. The ‘Pepirenos’ are still alive to get the miracle on the last day and the lions are left out of the European dream.

In the first half, Unai López shot and Cuéllar safed it. Suddenly, an action between Manu and Bryan Gil resulted in the Red Card for Simón, who barely touched the left-hander. Herrerín had to enter through Sancet. In the second half, Williams sent a ball to the post offside, with no more options for Athletic.

It was a sad and undeserved ending for two great lions who were saying goodbye. Before the game, a tribute was paid to Mikel San José and Beñat Etxebarria, two lions who sadly said goodbye to San Mamés.
