And at the eleventh, the Athletic gan.

I deserved the team of Gariz Gaizka In spite of his difficulties facing the goalkeeper, he also suffered it because he had a star Assenjo in front of him who stopped almost everything. Only claudic before the decisive penalty transformed by Ral Garca that gave the victory to the rojiblancos after 10 consecutive days without adding three points. An action that, despite his bad game in San MamsI enraged the Villarreal for unfair. In reality, both teams had reason to complain to the seventh arbitration perpetrated by Medi Jimnez.

Up to 18 times he finished Athletic, a faithful reflection of the good game he played and his superiority in the field. In the search for the balance between regaining sensations in the League and the need to face Thursday's semifinal one hundred percent, Garitano I gave up the line of three centrals so usual in the last two months, and went back to betting on the extremes. Bingo. Cordoba, which had been indito for two months, was in fact the best of the premises, vindicating itself before its inexplicable ostracism and leading from its corner of the field an Athletic with its traditional features: intense, aggressive, vertical and solid.

The initial onces were news in themselves, as the 22 players chosen by Garitano and Calleja they were Spanish, an indite fact in LaLiga in the last five years, from a Eibar-Real Sociedad. With the exception of Ontiveros by Moi Gmez, the technician 'groguet' repeated the alignment of the previous day in the Wanda and the result was the same, a defeat that slows his assault on European positions. Despite his anger over the decisive penalty, he did not deserve a Villarreal that is losing freshness to forced marches.

Lamely Cloak Kick

Although the anger deserves some nuance, since at 10 minutes the referee saw a grab from Trigueros to Muniain in the area that might deserve sanction. It happened in the context of a trumpet exit from Athletic, very dynamic in attack and continuously seeking superiorities on the left wing with Yuri and Crdoba. This was almost the entire first part, in which however the rojiblancos were unable to make a single shot to goalkeeper. The clearest, by far, had it Gerard Moreno, who lost the game with Simn in a hand to hand.

Before the break, the referee returned to take center stage by resolving with an yellow an ugly kick from Capa to Casserole He could deserve the direct red. In general, Medi Jimnez always made the decision easier and less compromised. Nothing new with the Catalan collegiate. Only alter his custom in the 54th minute, when he penalized a hand of Pau Lopez. The international center had its arms held behind its back. It is true that the ball hit his elbow, but he could not have the boy closest to the body.

Williams, bad in the 11 meters

Ral Garca transformed the penalty that, beyond the circumstances, put justice on the scoreboard. Athletic was being more ambitious, playing much better than his rival, and that continued after the goal. His continuous attacks caused a second penalty, this time clear, by the hand of Albiol, which Medi seal after being warned by the VAR. Ral Garca gave the responsibility to Williams, let it be fatal. Asenjo stopped him and also repelled the second shot of the Navarrese.

Then the 'show' of the goalkeeper of Villarreal began. His team took more risks and Athletic found free field to try to sentence the duel. Asenjo was immense before a chopped header of Iigo Martnez and then on a double occasion of Sancet and Capa. Simn had it easier to stop an innocent shot by Paco Alccer. The last match duel was to be claimed by the forward, who asked for a penalty from Nez just before the discount. Nothing prevented Athletic from parking his bad streak and recharging his morale in the face of the semifinal of the Thursday Cup in Granada.
