First round of the double session between Athletic and Sevilla. The lions looking for good feelings against a Champions rival. Hispanics preparing for the final of the European Super Cup against Bayern Munich in Budapest. Victory (2-1) for the Andalusians, who have gone ahead twice, and who have controlled the match.
Athletic has come out with a mixed eleven of starters and substitutes, with the main novelty being the presence of Yuri, with your first minutes of the course. Garitano has aligned Unai Simón, Lekue, Nolaskoain, Yeray, Yuri, Vencedor, Vesga, Williams, Muniain, Morcillo and Kodro.
The game started with rhythm and chances for the Bilbao team. The first at 35 seconds, with a pass Black pudding and I shoot up point blank from Kodro.
The squad of Garitano has been heeled to the left in terms of its attack actions, with a leading role in Black pudding Little of Muniain, Kodro and Williams. The international for Bosnia started the clash as nine, but after a quarter of an hour he exchanged his position with the Bilbao striker.
Yeray has narrowly missed a ball at the far post in a corner and the Mute Vazquez he narrowly shot wide on a left-handed cross shot. The sevillistas also catalyzed their offensive plays on the left with the increases of Squire, with command in the core of Jordán, Suso and Vázquez.
Athletic's possessions were shorter and Sevilla's were longer and had better ball handling. Yuri He also wanted to record his return and hit the crossbar after the first quarter of an hour.
After a trigger of Williams with the left after another pass from Black pudding and rejection of a defender has reached 1-0 at 28 minutes, with a cross shot from Squire culminating another collective action by the rival. Perhaps it was an unfair result due to the insistence, although not clearly, of the lions.
And the tie has arrived in minute 35. Work of Muniain penalty with a mid-height shot but adjusted to the left post. The maximum fee has been charged Williams before a naive Suso. Thus it has come to rest.
The second part has begun with the Sevilla control, already in monologue mode with the ball. Although the first to warn was Athletic, with a header from Kodro to Bono's hands after a pass from Muniain, the one that has been the Andalusian team. Fruit of one of its centers in the area, En-Nesyri He made it 2-1 with a chopped header. In the 57th minute another setback was added, the injury of Yeray, relieved by Luengo.
The script has been kept until the end. An Athletic without offensive arguments, without the ball, and a Sevilla that has circulated the ball, but without doing damage. Of course, both have wanted to leave their spur almost on the horn. Navas with a shot next to the left stick that has stopped Unai Simon. AND Williams, in its most meritorious appearance, with a snatch and shot inside the high area.
