Athletic Club has won 1-2 at Girona FC in Montilivi. Iñaki Williams and Raúl García have scored red-and-white goals at the beginning of the second half and have overtaken the one achieved by Stuani in the final stretch of the first half.
The team had a good start, took the initiative and had control of the match during the first twenty minutes of the match. As the contest opened up, local options have increased and, despite the few goalscoring options on both sides, in the 37th minute Stuani demonstrated his well known striking ability and scored by a header the 1-0.
This has not been a season of epic comebacks, but after the break, Athletic have put the duel on track before the quarter-hour. First, a header from Williams, by Yuri’s centre, tied the match and Girona has conceded the second goal without time to react. This time on the opposite side, Williams has centered for Raul Garcia to beat, also with the head, our former player Gorka Iraizoz.
From there until the end, our team have enjoyed today the best options, but has lacked more skill in the last pass. Already without Dani Garcia in the field, injured, the red-and-white squad have defended well from the rival aerial bombing and start the week looking up with the healthy intention of prolonging the winning streak against Levante UD.
