Places punish lions

At the Mestalla, Athletic lacked one of the great virtues that have accompanied them this season, the goal. The rojiblancos had chances to save at least a point, but they were unsuccessful against the local goal. Nico Williams on two occasions, Oihan Sancet and First Gómez They had a chance to lose Mamardashvilibut this time I disagree despite the fact that the red and white are one of the best teams in the championship after three rounds of the second round have been played.

The team had its chances then Hugo Duro He caught Valencia with a precise header against the post of the red and white goal. Once the game starts, Fran Perez warned a shot into the side of the net, but soon Nico Williams He had a chance to put his team ahead with a right-footed shot that Che’s goalkeeper blocked with no problem.

The winger had another similar shot in the 29th minute after a nice inside pass from Beñat Prados which is blocked without problem Mamardashvilialthough on the verge of a break Hugo Guillamonwhich earned him a spot in the starting eleven of Ruben Baraja, was about to open the scoring with another shot from the edge of the area that almost missed. In the last play of the first half, First Simon He had to kick out a ball that was going into his goal with his heel.

Once the second phase begins, Sancet He narrowly missed a ball put by Inigo Lekue come back after a good heart center Herrera. The goal came a few moments later Hugo Durowho managed to increase the advantage with a deflected shot from a pass from Diego Lopez.

Valverde He immediately moved his chip in search of a tying goal, bringing Galarretta through Ander Herrera already First Gómez and Villaliber through like and Guruzeta respectively.

Nico Williams He was scared because of some knee discomfort, but things didn’t get worse. Txingurri put all his artillery in the field Raul Garcia through Sancet and Hello Ares for the youngest sibling. As soon as he left, the man from Bilbao turned on First Gómez and forced a lateral shot from Bermeo’s midfielder Mamardashvili to perform a good intervention. There was a tie.

Valverde’s team had their fifth game of the season without scoring. The previous four were against Real Madrid in the league premiere (0-2), against Mallorca in Son Moix (0-0), against Real Sociedad in the Anoeta derby (3-0) and against Barça ( 1-0 ) on October 22, 2023.

This was the last defeat before yesterday’s defeat at Mestalla. Three months apart. The balance since then has been eleven wins and three draws in the last fourteen games between League and Cup.

Yesterday the team was hampered by the lack of clarity in attack on previous occasions, the lack of effectiveness in exploiting opportunities and the success of Hugo Duror to score a good header the good pass offered by Like.
