Another final for Athletic in Madrid


Alavés drew Valverde’s side against Granada on Sunday afternoon. It is only worth winning. Two impressive goals against Simeone’s deflated side, after their defeat in Europe, and Sivera’s saves highlighted Athletic’s gritty draw against Granada. The blue and white put Valverde’s team into another final, this Saturday, and in Madrid, as dictated by the canons.

In 90 minutes at the Metropolitano, the red and whites played their last chance to fight for qualification for the Champions League. The point scored against Granada, not enough at first, serves to replace it with an extra bullet in Bilbao’s hope room. The Cup champions are hoping again and in a few days on themselves. With the win, they ranked fourth in goal average favorability.

No pressure either. Those from Cerezo are bound to earn a place in the top continental competition. If they fail, everything can fall apart. Athletic has the perfect opportunity. He must show that there is only one Athletic and it is Bilbao.

If they achieve their fourth consecutive victory against the colchoneros, the lions are five games away from the goal, enough for them to match the points obtained by those from the banks of the river Manzanares. Getafe, Osasuna, Celta and Sevilla will face each other before closing the season in Vallecas. In San Mamés, Navarrese and Sevillians. Some of them, maybe nothing at stake.

On Saturday we have an exciting challenge on the opposite field against a prestigious rival and with a great final prize. What better way to keep the excitement going until the end of the campaign. We must forget the decompression after the cup title and the fatigue of the celebrations. The game is great.
