Athletic struggled to beat Cádiz’s goal as Valverde opted to make his first change. Muniain came on for Berenguer in the 63rd minute. The San Mamés scoreboard then read 0-0.
The red and white captain met Sancet on the field for the first time so far in the League. He was moved to the left wing with his tall teammate acting as a midfielder. Three minutes later, after a previous threat in the form of Maxi’s shot into the hands of Unai Simón, the lions took the lead through Guruzeta.
The 2-0 was hardly long in coming. Villalibre, with the first ball he touched, inaugurated his scoring account. With 2-0 in favor, the Gasteiz coach chose to bring on Ander Herrera for Sancet. The two Navarrese only met for 17 minutes on the grass.
