Girona 1-2 Athletic Bilbao: Basque’s ensure hosts maintain poor home record

Athletic Bilbao were at their very best as they beat Girona on Friday evening thanks to goals from Inaki Williams and Raul Garcia.

Before kick off, these two sides were fairly even, sitting around the midtable mark in La Liga but it proved to be a good night for the visitors as they secured an impressive win to give their European hopes a boost.

The opening goal of the came rather against the run of play as Williams and Oscar De Marcos both tested home keeper and former Athletic stopper Gorka Iraizoz during the opening twenty minutes.

Cristhian Stuani was the man celebrating as he found the back of the net after good work from left back Raul Garcia.

The game then was fairly even but chances fell few and far between as the hosts failed to build on their 1-0 lead and that was soon cancelled out by the lively Williams.

The Basque striker was on hand to bring his side level thanks to good work by Yuri Berchiche and it was just five minutes later than flipped the game right on its head as Athletic went ahead.

This time Williams turned providor as he found Raul Garcia, who put the ball into the back of the net past Iraizoz and secured all three points.
