Athletic is on its way to a century record


With different names than usual, but the Athletic was able to maintain its defensive structure against Barça. It is not as close to the rival area as in previous matches San Mames neither did it generate a huge amount of chances, surely a mixture of fatigue and rotation, although it managed to keep its foundations strong to score a new zero on goal First Simon. The 13th currently League. At the top of the competition with real Madrid.

The merit on this occasion for the lions is to do it with footballers who have had little training in recent months. In the defensive framework most used by Valverdeonly Walls appeared in the first picture. more Simon under the sticks The minutes from December serve as collateral. A stretch where the lions played 18 matches in between League and cup. Yesfor example, has only 362 minutes in this period because he recently left the infirmary.

like Yes, he gained the coach’s trust recently. However, he started at right back. 90 minutes, and before the Cayon, this is his luggage. One of the Imanol, which I didn’t count, is 135′. Both followed with flying colors. It was also the first time Vesga and Dani Garcia This campaign coincides with the engine room. Gasteiztarra took a backseat, 491′ since December, and of Zumarraga He will enter after leaving with an injury (52′).

To everyone Athletic not blurred and knows how to keep its structure in front of a transatlantic like Barcelona. In low time, but with Lewandowski, Cancelo, Gündogan, Raphinha, Pedri or De Jong in the starting lineup. And with Lamine Yamal insertion of reinforcement. No news about the Polish striker, mainly thanks to Walls. The only occasion with a specific chicha for the culés is the consecutive double of Fermin and I canceled in the first half. Simon He went out to cover the first and retreated to save the second, with the invaluable collaboration of Yesto the distant launch of the Portuguese.

And when you are not inspired in front of the goal or you have not developed enough, locking your goal is to ensure, at least, a point. There are 13 clean sheets this season, almost half of what we have in the League (27 games). With the addition of the return under his jurisdiction after the Athletic had a bad day at Benito Villamarin.

The progress of the red and white team is that they are about to beat their best defensive numbers of the century in terms of clean sheets. The record was 14 signed in 2014-15. Now 13 of 2021-22 and 2015-16 have been matched and there are eleven dates left to match and surpass the mark. Something synonymous with good news for Athletic in a European key. It serves as a reference that a decade ago, in the last classification for Champions, ‘only’ there are a dozen. Times change, but a good defense will always bring you success.
